Own a Gun? Holder and his ilk want to make it impossible for you to use it defend yourself!

From Larry Miller in Completely Defenseless

Extreme gun control advocate Eric Holder’s recent rant about the evils of the stand-your-ground laws in Florida and other freedom oriented states is a further indication that he does not believe the citizens should be capable of providing their own defense. Calling stand-your-ground laws “senseless” is indicative of the complete lack of understanding of the human psyche by the progressive left. People are more than simple animals that need to be cared for by the state and controlled so they do not hurt themselves.
It is clear he believes only the state should have access to the deadly force required to stop some harm to the individuals under his power. The problem with this is summarized by the answer one man gave when asked why he carried a .45 – he said because a policeman is too heavy.
Just as the current regime is doing its best to move us into a position where we are completely dependent on the state for our economic well being and health care needs, Holder wants the state to be in charge of protecting the people whose taxes pay his and all the other bureaucratic salaries. Following his plans would also mean the citizens would be in a less advantageous position to resist additional federal intrusions on their lives...
We now have a national government taking a two pronged approach to preventing the people from stepping into the gap to protect their families and property. First they don’t even want weapons in the hands of people not authorized and controlled by the government. Then, on top of then, even if we have them, they want to make it almost impossible to use them without having consequences almost as dire as being left defenseless. And that is their end game. If we cannot defend ourselves, neither can we resist the overreaches of a tyrannical government.
It’s been a protracted discussion over many years about the causes of crime in our country, and, as usual, the real causes are never addressed. All we are given is that we must fund and support another government program that is destined to fail a la midnight basketball. In reality, it is often these government programs that set up expectations and actions that lead to tragedies like the death of a misguided teenager who happened to attack the wrong “creapy-ass cracker” one rainy evening.   Read it all here...
