Those who would unjustly deprive us of our Constitutionally-protected individual rights to self-defense, self-preservation, and the peaceful ownership of private property make a big deal about the number of "gun violence" victims they have on their side, as if being shot at by a criminal somehow makes you an expert on all things firearm- and rights-related (note: it does not). Unfortunately, once you start pulling back the layers of publicity polish and bluster, you start discovering that those "victims" are liars, prevaricators, and not actually victims at all.
Just as ostensibly being a victim of a crime does not make you an expert on that crime, it also does not excuse fabricating nonsense to support your authoritarian agenda.
But given the moral authority "gun control" extremists automatically bestow upon anyone who might, possibly, maybe be a victim of firearm-related violence no matter how tenuous or suspect the connection, I wonder what they think of a Tiananmen Square protester telling Americans in Boston just how important the Second Amendment and the private ownership of arms are:
On the one hand, I can hear anti-rights cultists’ heads exploding as you read this. On the other hand, given the CSGV‘s comments in the past regarding "insurrectionists", I have absolutely no doubt they would gleefully toss this now-American under the treads of the tanks that rolled through Tiananmen Square on 04JUN89.
When it comes to the two sides of that debate – "students" and "tanks" – I know which one I want to win.
