By now anyone who hasn’t had their head in the sand has seen the videos from Europe: Individual or even gangs of migrants from the Middle East who came as “refugees” violently attacking women, the elderly, or the disabled. We’ve all watched in horror and sometimes condescension, wondering how the Germans, French, and Italians could be so foolish as to let their beautiful countries, which their ancestors defended against hordes of Muslim invaders hundreds of years ago, be conquered without firing a single shot.
Well, we’re doing it as well. Much of the angst that Donald Trump was able to tap into was due to many Americans not wanting to become like Europe, with hordes of Muslim migrants invading our country, and instead of assimilating to our way of life, demanding we assimilate to theirs. Liberals certainly seem to be willing to bend over backward to allow Muslims to do whatever they want, despite the fact that Islam is contrary to almost everything liberals believe in. For this reason many conservatives wanted to keep them out, and for reasons passing understanding they thought Trump would be the man to do it.
The problem is, the Trump State Department has granted entry to more “refugees” than Trump stated he wanted, not to mention that the President’s travel ban has met with a multitude of ridiculous court challenges. This, coupled with the fact that President Obama had already let tens of thousands of “refugees” into the country, demonstrates a clear threat already present in our country. (I put quotations on refugees because I don’t consider men of fighting age to be legitimate refugees.)
As I was watching one video the other day of a Middle Eastern man brazenly attacking a young Dutch girl, the difference between there and here occurred to me, and I was able to smile. The founding fathers wrote into the Constitution a firewall that can protect us from a tyrannical government and even the stupidity of government.
The 2nd Amendment.
Our right to defend ourselves with firearms is one those in Europe gave up long ago, and why they have little recourse in protecting themselves from a culture that thinks rape is justified just because a woman’s face is uncovered. Our women won’t have that problem.
Well, at least many of them won’t.
States like California, Illinois, and Massachusetts have made it so difficult for citizens to exercise their God-given rights that they have left their citizens defenseless. Those of us in places like Texas, Georgia, and Oklahoma, on the other hand, will be able to fend off absolutely anyone who may try to prey upon us or our loved ones.
Liberals like to ask why anyone needs a gun with a 30 round magazine. Need isn’t relevant, but since they asked, how about hordes of migrants bent on rape and murder? Seems like a good idea for a semi-automatic rifle and lots of ammunition.
Our American Firewall of self-defense could keep us to descending into the chaos Europe is currently suffering. Well, at least some of us.
