Video- Vet At Anti-Gun Forum: 'threat of tyranny, today, is no less than at the turn of the century''

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By Susan Duclos

Legal Insurrection posted a video on YouTube, from an anti-gun forum in Chicago, where a veteran stood up up American’s Second Amendment rights, pointing out that constitutional rights, including the First Amendment and Second Amendment rights, were rights he went to war for.

Via Legal Insurrection:

Finally, when panelist Lee Goodman of the Stop Concealed Carry Coalition
responded to a question about the original reasons for including the
Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights by saying “it didn’t matter [what
their intentions were],” it was enough for the combat veteran to speak

The exchange:
Veteran: Sir, sir. While you’re standing
up. I’ve sat here [inaudible] and I’d like to agree with the professor.
Everyone standing in this room right now, especially the
veterans in the room right now, know, that we are all Americans. The
problem with this country right now is it’s us and it’s f***ing them. We
need to stop this crap.

Now, the thing I would like you to answer, sir. And I did go to war
for this country. Whether it was for everyone in here’s ability to have
oil and gas in their cars, or the banks, or whatever. I went to war for
my country.

And I went to war for your ability to have the First Amendment, to
say what you stood up there and said today, to write what you want to
write in your newspaper, and have whatever opinion you want to have. You
can practice whatever religious freedoms you want. I would like you to
answer the question, since you just said that one of the rights that I
went to war over to defend, that is inalienable, to every American
citizen. If this discussion was going on, about your First Amendment
rights, would you still have the same opinion that we don’t need that
any more either.

Goodman: You didn’t hear my answer….that’s not what I
said…I said it doesn’t matter what their reasons are, what matters is
whether or not it’s relevant today.
Audience member: It’s an eternal truth, an eternal truth….

Goodman: When they consider any part of the Constitution, any law, they’re going to say, “what does it mean today?”

Audience: NO!

Veteran: The threat of tyranny, today, is no less than at the turn of the century in 1900, in 1800, or in 1700!

The sustained applause for this vet after his last comment shows the audience understands the whole gun control vs Second Amendment debate raging across the country is about American’s inalienable right to bear arms which is “necessary to the security of a free state,” as it is written into the constitution.

It is ironic that the forum was held in Chicago, which has some of the strictest guns laws in the country, yet last weekend alone, saw reports of 17 people shot. Guns laws do not protect citizenry, but instead disarms them and prevents them from defending themselves against those that do not obey those same laws.

(IL) Democrats on January 20, 2013. A veteran rose to address speakers
and defend First and Second Amendments. Related information here:
