Gun Rights Right in DC Podcasts

The Second Amendment and the Right to Defend Yourself

When Mark and Patricia McCloskey defended themselves with a strong show of force against hundreds of aggressive, trespassing people, I was reminded of my testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee in January 30, 2013, when our federal lawmakers were considering banning certain firearms and operational parts of firearms under the bogus justification of increasing public safety.

Mark and Patricia McCloskey walked out onto their lawn with a rifle and a handgun to protect themselves. The mainstream media and the leftist internet tried to turn them into viral villains, but except for the extreme left, people cheered and supported them for their actions.

Americans have watched rioters and looters destroy our cities and kill those who stand up to them, like David Dorn. Police forces have given up precincts and our streets to rioters and looters who attack police officers without fear.

It is easier to attack our second amendment in times of peace and security, but those attacks fall on deaf ears when Americans see what is happening around our country. Our Second Amendment gives every law-abiding American a fighting chance.
