NYT's Cries Over Sharron Angle's Defense Of Second Amendment

“The constitutions of most of our States assert that all power is inherent in the people; …that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.”

Thomas Jefferson


“The nation is arming,” she told The Reno Gazette-Journal. “What are they arming for if it isn’t that they are so distrustful of their government? They’re afraid they’ll have to fight for their liberty in more Second Amendment kinds of ways. That’s why I look at this as almost an imperative. If we don’t win at the ballot box, what will be the next step?”

The next step should be Ms. Angle’s explanation to Nevada voters of why she sees no harm in loosing such incendiary rhetoric. Pandering to gun ownership may be a political grail in Nevada politics, but this has crossed all acceptable lines.

Sorry to remind you chump, but the good ole USA wouldn’t be here today without violent revolution.

The nation was born out of violence against tyranny.

The entire purpose of the second amendment was to be able to do away with standing armies and have the people be able to defend themselves.  The reason for doing away with standing armies was clear, they posed a clear threat to liberty.
