Safety? At what cost does a “right” to safety come?

Mike McDaniel knocks this out of the park

“They that would surrender essential liberty for a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”

 Benjamin Franklin

Ah yes, Franklin. One of the wisest men we have been blessed with. Heed his words

Fake Hispanic Beto O’Rourke has managed to anger pretty much everyone.  Normal Americans are angry because he has openly expressed Democrat/Socialist/Communist gun grabbing desires in a way that will no longer allow his brethren to deny they really want to seize the guns of law-abiding Americans.  The more honest—to the degree any of these people can be said to be honest—among them fear O’Rourke may have handed the White House to Mr. Trump in 2020.  “Damn it Beto, you told the rubes what we really intend to do!  How could you do that?!”  To be sure, the occasional Democrat of the past said essentially the same thing, like Senator Diane Feinstein, who, back in 1995, said:  

If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them, ‘Mr. and Mrs. America, turn ‘em all in,’ I would have done it.

As McDaniel explains, we, at least those of us who will see, know the lefts endgame

Government has no conscience, and will never allow itself to be sued.  Government has only priorities and powers, and neither are focused on the individual.  D/S/C government is scornful of individual rights because those rights are limitations on its powers.  Thus do they wish to disarm the law-abiding, and care little for disarming criminals, who help keep normal Americans in line.

Politicians know this.  They know no one can hold them responsible for their indifference to the welfare and lives of others.  All normal Americans can do is turn them out of office at the next election—if D/S/C election fraud allows it.  They know they’re not going to hold criminals responsible for their crimes, unless they’re so stupid as to victimize them.  They know exactly what will happened if they disarm the law-abiding, and they salivate at the prospect.

We’re on our own. We are all responsible for defending our lives and the lives of those we love.  Refusing to recognize that reality and refusing to take the steps necessary to save lives does not change reality, because evil exists and it may confront anyone at any time and any place.  An additional reality is an AR-15, or similar rifle, might well be necessary to save lives, and it will surely be necessary if fake Hispanic Beto O’Rourke, or anyone like him, takes power.

The founders felt this the most compelling reason for normal Americans to keep and bear the most powerful military weapons of their day.  Arguments that if they knew about AR-15s, they would never have written the Second Amendment are nonsense.  The tool/technology was never the point; the principle was and ever will be.  They would have been delighted to have that kind of technology, and would have thought and done no differently if they did.

Go read it all, and pass this around folks.
