The Second Amendment was only for militias, the leftists said. It wasn’t for modern-day citizens, they said.
And then Donald J. Trump got 306 electoral votes.
And suddenly, the Second Amendment became very, very real for a lot of leftists who wanted to plug their ears when it was read out to them during the eight years of the Obama administration.
According to the Phoenix New Times, “40 or so assorted anarchists, Brown Berets, and members of a group calling itself the Phoenix John Brown Gun Club” awkwardly took their weapons and demonstrated on the grounds of the state Capitol in Phoenix this weekend, because why the hell not?
The leftists were standing right across from a group of Trump supporters allegedly called the Brown Berets. Neither group would talk to the reporter, which says a lot about where the media stands in the public opinion these days.
(John Brown, as a reminder, was a hardcore abolitionist who gave his life after a guerrilla action to speed up the end of slavery in the United States. He was hanged in 1859 by the Commonwealth of Virginia and its slavery-supporting Democrat Party. That’s the same anti-Trump party that’s supported by the gang that was demonstrating outside the Arizona state Capitol with guns, but this is neither here nor there.)
And, by the way, these don’t seem like people who are terribly willing to spread peace and love throughout the land. The Phoenix New Times reporter found that out while he was recording the protest with his phone.
“I’m just going to warn you that we’re not responsible for anything that might happen to that phone,” one of the “militia” members said.
However, I find it ironic that these are the same activists who were trying to reduce the debate over the Second Amendment to whether or not individuals can safely handle firearms. It’s obvious these liberals believe they can.
Now, it’s time for them to admit that everybody can. And that the Second Amendment means what it says.
