Brit argues the world must intervene and disarm lunatic Americans.
Even the liberals over at AOL-Huffpo are against destroying what remains of the Second Amendment. In a poll hosted last week by the would-be competitor to the Drudge Report, 48 percent of respondents supported more gun control.
“Support for stricter gun laws has dropped since reaching a peak just after the school shooting in Newtown, Conn., according to two polls conducted immediately following this week’s Navy Yard shooting in Washington, D.C.,” writes Emily Swanson for the corporate owned website.
“Support for stricter gun laws in the poll is down from a high of 60 percent in a YouGov/Economist poll conducted in January, weeks after the Newtown shooting.”
Despite Senator Dianne Feinstein’s immediate call to trash the Constitution – echoed by the usual suspects: Piers Morgan, Henry Winkler, and other privileged enemies of the Second Amendment – most Americans understand that disarming people is not a good idea.
“Citizen of the World” Calls for Intervention to Disarm Americans
Outside of the United States, where the idea of self-ownership and the natural right of self-defense is at best a dismal concept, members of the corporatized media are calling for armed intervention to put an end to the Second Amendment.
“But what if we no longer thought of this as just a problem for America and, instead, viewed it as an international humanitarian crisis – a quasi civil war, if you like, that calls for outside intervention?” writes Henry Porter of the London Observer. “As citizens of the world, perhaps we should demand an end to the unimaginable suffering of victims and their families – the maiming and killing of children – just as America does in every new civil conflict around the globe.”
Mr. Porter proudly notes that Britons long ago dispensed with English Common Law – apparently including its precedent, the Magna Carta – and insists that the right to bear arms is an antiquated idea akin to holding slaves.
“Half the country is sane and rational while the other half simply doesn’t grasp the inconsistencies and historic lunacy of its position, which springs from the second amendment right to keep and bear arms, and is derived from English common law and our 1689 Bill of Rights,” he writes. “We dispensed with these rights long ago, but American gun owners cleave to them with the tenacity that previous generations fought to continue slavery.”
Maybe the United Nations can be sent in to disarm the irrational rustics. “This has reached the point where it has ceased to be a domestic issue. The world cannot stand idly by.”
