For those considering following New Zealand's lead in disarming the people, let me say this:

In the USA, we have a God-given, fundamental, natural, unalienable, constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms.

It is so sacrosanct that the protection of this right was placed directly next to the First Amendment, of free speech. You can't have one without the other.

In the last century, 200 million people were first disarmed and then executed by their own governments. Our greatest danger is a government turning tyrannical.

With shouts from the left wanting to move us in the direction of totalitarian socialism, now more than ever, we need to protect our right to be armed.

We must never give up our guns, not under any circumstances.
