Blaming Gun Owners in New Jersey

The drumbeat is beginning again. Can you hear it? Every day, we're seeing more and more columnists and politicians trying to blame violent crime on us, the law-abiding gun owners.

In New Jersey, where an illegal alien who was out on bail for child rape and assault allegedly killed three people and injured another, writers like Bob Braun are pointing the finger not at the criminals who commit these heinous acts, but at you and me.

He recently wrote in the Newark Star-Ledger:

"We still debate about whether cheap handguns-the only purpose of which is to help people kill each other-should be manufactured and sold, as if the Framers of the Constitution meant the Second Amendment to assist gang warfare in city streets. Hey, Mr. Charlton Heston, want to talk about cold dead hands now? Three pairs of them in a Newark school yard the other night."

Mr. Braun, the Framers knew exactly what they were doing in drafting the Second Amendment as a protection of our right to keep and bear arms. The Second Amendment isn't designed to "assist gang warfare." It's designed to make sure "We the People" can protect ourselves against these thugs.

New Jersey's gun laws, which include getting permission from the local police before being able to purchase a firearm, didn't do a thing to stop the alleged murderer.

How many Right-to-Carry holders are there in Newark, New Jersey? Not too many, I'm guessing. Your politicians have made it crystal clear that they don't like guns or gun owners. Sadly, those who commit violent crimes hate to see law-abiding gun owners as well.

You might ask yourself if it's a good thing that your elected leaders and your violent criminals share the same anti-Second Amendment ideology.
