For the vast majority of America’s youth who refused to be used as a political pawn in Saturday’s anti-gun marches, I congratulate you!
It is courageous to stand for freedom against government tyranny, especially when your peers are receiving breathless praise from the nation’s media outlets. This is why you, as the vast majority of America’s youth, should not remain silent as your fellow students claim to speak for you in demanding that your right to self-defense be given away. Your right to self-defense is not theirs to give.
It seems that Saturday’s anti-gun march found few, if any, people who value liberty. Unlike other civil rights marches in U.S. history, Saturday’s gun control rally was really an anti-civil rights rally; it was an entirely un-American experience. These marchers seek not to expand your freedoms, but to deprive you and your family of your fundamental right to self-defense. And just like retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens argued yesterday, many of the marchers desire the elimination of the Second Amendment, which guarantees your individual right to effective self-defense.
Don’t be fooled. You should never give away your right to defend yourself and those you care about. Once gone, you will never get this right back.
