Italian woman says we should KEEP our guns!

Generally speaking, conservative Americans don’t particularly care to hear Europeans weigh in with their opinions on our Second Amendment and gun laws, but an Italian woman recently stated something so simple yet profound that it simply must be shared.

“Americans, I’m watching the #GunControl protests from Italy,” tweeted a user by the name of Redeemed Goddaughter.

“Take a European’s advice: Last century our governments disarmed us. Now, in Germany & the UK they arrest you for Twitter & FB posts. Lesson?

“If the gov’t takes your 2nd Amendment, one day it’ll take your 1st,” she concluded.

Lesson?

Indeed, our Second Amendment-protected right to keep and bear arms — and the underlying threat to would-be tyrants that those arms could be used in force if necessary — serves to protect all of our other constitutionally protected natural rights, such as the First Amendment-protected right to free speech.

It is a simple fact that the substantial portion of the citizenry in America who are armed with modern weapons is really all that stands in the way of a tyrannical government from wanton infringement of our rights.

As the woman noted, much of Europe has implemented strict gun control measures over the years that have left the population largely disarmed and incapable of effectively standing up in defense of their rights.

Thus, the citizens of many European countries have been all but silenced, forced to submit to various speech laws and other injustices, as a disarmed populace is largely viewed more as subjects instead of sovereign citizens in the eyes of all-powerful governments.
