Earlier this week, gun control’s Daddy Warbucks, Michael Bloomberg, said what most Democrats are thinking: “You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place.”
This is the elitist, aristocratic, oligarchy our Founders warned us about, manifested before our very eyes. To arrogant elitists like Bloomberg, the average American is expendable, and most definitely deplorable. To the gun control elitist, the average American is a peasant who cannot be trusted to decide what he or she eats, let alone to own firearms.
The truth is, Bloomberg-type gun control fanatics actually fear the average American.
Often times, pompous plutocrats like Bloomberg shout the loudest for more and more gun control, all while surrounded by a traveling security net of armed guards. After all, they’re not lowly peasants so they’re much more deserving of protection and security than you are.
The inconvenient truth is that the purpose of the Second Amendment is to safeguard against precisely Bloomberg’s way of thinking. The purpose of the Second Amendment is to keep power in the hands of the people. To ensure that government operates at the consent of the governed. This is why we must never compromise, relinquish or forego exercising this right.
The battle over Second Amendment rights is a symptom of a larger problem in America. Many politicians fear the fact that ‘We The People’ are the boss. But in their view, ‘We The People’ are ignorant and the Bloomberg types think they are superior. In overbearing, nanny-state fashion, they clearly know better than we do, as they have made clear for all who care to listen.
The last thing elitist civilian disarmament fanatics — Moms Who Demand and Everytown shills — want is for the average American to be “woke” and remind them who is in charge. They hope you are oblivious and stay that way.
Over the past two weeks, we have watched a train wreck as Democrats like Bloomberg, Elizabeth Warren, and out-of-touch fanatics like Shannon Watts of Moms Demand Action, performed a variety of illogical mental gymnastics in order to condemn the life-saving response by armed parishioner and hero, Jack Wilson in the Texas church incident.
Lives were saved there that day, but they can’t possibly acknowledge the objective reality of that. Why? Because to the anti-rights gun control fanatics and elitists, the Jack Wilson represents the well-armed, well-trained, loathsome, to-be-feared average American. They just cannot have that.
We are on the verge of a powder keg moment in Virginia and possibly elsewhere. As more gun owners stand up, unify and refuse to give another inch of our rights, you will see more fearful, alarmist statements from Bloomberg and other gun control extremists. Do not be fooled: their calls for more Second Amendment infringements will surely increase.
Let us be clear, the average American will no longer tolerate incremental infringements and bans on concealed carrying in states like New Jersey. Mr. Bloomberg, we have one thing to say to you and your fellow elitist gun control fanatics: there is no individual greater than the average American, and don’t you ever forget it.
