Newtopia: freedom with guns

As Michelle Goldberg (michelleinbklyn) tweeted:

Newt says US should have goal to "teach people around the world why right to bear arms is central to their liberty."

Yes, because if there's one big takeaway from world history, from the invention of gunpowder to the present day, it's that everyone would have been a lot better off with guns in their hands.

And certainly the world would be a much better place today, freedom triumphant, if only everyone had a gun.

Nothing like living in fear, nothing like a fearful, fully-armed populace threatening the veneer of civility that already barely keeps society together.

So obvious, yet so not. Thanks, Newt!

All hail America!

Peace... out.

  • Ask Jewish shop owners in Germany in the late 1930's if they would have felt "more free" or "less free" had they been allowed to legally possess a Mauser. The intent of the 2nd Amendment is not "hunting" or "protecting yourself against an assailant" ... it's protecting yourself against a tyrannical government.
