“We have the right as Americans to be free of violence and fear.”
Shannon, you mean everyone who is not an American gun owner.
Shannon, we too “have the right as Americans to be free of violence and fear”, and we do it by taking control of that right via the enumerated second amendment right to self-defense.
You do it by trying to get as many as possible to not take control of that right “as Americans to be free of violence and fear” and for them the ones that have control of that right are called criminals and tyranny.
Shannon, tell us how many times you or your EveryTown and Moms Demand Action showed up to defend that “right as Americans to be free of violence and fear” when a bad guy was right there imminently trying to kill that American?
Us gun carry Americans tend to be there when that imminent criminal threat wants to kill us. We may not be successful 100% of the time but collectively we are successful enough to save around 2 million per year that faced that threat yet I can not find one single instance where you were there Shannon. I don’t remember seeing you, Shannon, coming to defend my wife when two criminals tried to abduct and rape her, but I was there with a gun and without it both my wife and I would have died. I do remember me being there in the several other incidents where my gun was the only choice to prevent that imminent criminal threat from killing me.
Maybe its the gated type community you live in with its roving security patrols, or maybe the armed security that’s always close by for you to call on and that travels with you, or maybe its the members of Moms Demand Action and EveryTown that actually own and carry guns concealed, maybe its these that give you a sense of security enough to have the gall to claim “have the right as Americans to be free of violence and fear” while you try to keep these Americans disarmed so that when that threat comes they will not have control of that “right as Americans to be free of violence and fear”.
Surely it couldn’t be the thousands of people in Brazil you helped kill or injure by knowingly marketing in Brazil a Monsanto product known to do that very thing while you were working for Monsanto years ago. Did they not also “have the right as Brazilians to be free of violence and fear”? Maybe not because you certainly didn’t think that when you marketed that product in Brazil.
So I find it really odd that you say “We have the right as Americans to be free of violence and fear” but seem to never show up to defend that American when that imminent criminal threat shows up to apply that “violence and fear”.
I also find it odd that you have in your past racked up an impressive kill and injury tally for your personal gain while with Monsanto and now you want to do the same thing here but this time by marketing your “We have the right as Americans to be free of violence and fear” while at the same time trying to remove the means to take control of and exercise that right while being paid handsomely to do so.
