President Barack Obama and U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have been advocating for much stricter gun control. If they had their way, no American citizen, except law enforcement and military, would be allowed to own a firearm of any kind.
Hillary Clinton has already signed two United Nations treaties that would restrict the sale of weapons and the ownership of any firearm – handgun, rifle and shotgun. Fortunately, these treaties need a two-thirds Senate vote to ratify them and that has not yet happened.
Then you also have people like New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg who is so anti-gun that it’s a wonder he even allows the New York police to carry guns. A number of other mayors share the same anti-gun feelings.
So I wonder what they would say if confronted by people who have successfully defended themselves in their own homes by using a firearm?
Last Christmas, 18 year old Sarah McKinley of Oklahoma City used a shotgun to defend herself and her baby from two knife wielding intruders. One of the intruders knew that Sarah had recently buried her husband and that she was home alone with her three month old son. There is no telling what would have happened to her and her baby if she did not have the shotgun which she used to shot one of the intruders who kicked in her door.
Now we have the case of 12 year old Kendra St. Clair, also from Oklahoma. She was home alone when someone broke into her house. Frightened, she called her mom who told her to grab mom’s handgun, a .40 caliber Glock, hide in mom’s closet and call 911. The intruder made his way to mom’s bedroom and was trying to open the closet when Kendra fired one shot through the closet door. She hit the intruder in the shoulder causing him to flee the house. A short time later, police apprehended him and he is facing charges.
Again, we don’t know what would have happened to Kendra if there was no gun in the house. She quite possibly could have been raped and or murdered. Instead, she had a weapon with which she was able to defend herself from the intruder and escape any harm.
Mr. President, Secretary of State Clinton, Mayor Bloomberg and all of you other anti-gun liberals, what do you say to Kendra St. Clair or Sarah McKinley?
Do you tell them that you would rather there was no gun in the house and that they just had to take their chances with the intruders?
Do you realize that your anti-Second Amendment policies would have made a victim of this 12 year old girl instead of making her a hero?
How many other victims do you want on your hands and consciences?
Ask yourself what you would do if someone broke into your house and threatened your children?
Would you rather stand by and watch what might happen or have a gun to prevent it from happening?
Mr. President, could you honestly look one of your daughters in the eye and tell her that she was raped because you don’t believe in owning a gun for protection?
I wish all of the bleeding heart liberals could put themselves in Sarah’s or Kendra’s position and feel what it would be like without having a gun to protect themselves. Or better yet, I wish they could look into the face of a 12 year old girl who had just been raped and/or beaten and explain to her that she is better off being a victim instead of being armed and preventing it from happening to her. Maybe then, they will have a change of heart.
In the meantime, all of us who value our families and want to do whatever we can to protect them from harm, need to make a concerted effort to vote out every anti-gun politician there is and make sure we only vote for those that will uphold our Second Amendment right to bear arms and protect ourselves.
