Ronald Reagan’s Gun Control Stance Completely Shuts Down Liberal Gun Grabbers [Video]

President Ronald Reagan spoke the words almost 35 years ago, but they could have been part of an argument yesterday.

Because with the gun control movement galvanized by the Valentine’s Day massacre in Parkland, Florida, gun grabbers are trying to use the blood of innocent victims to open another front in their war on constitutional liberty.

But in a speech to the National Rifle Association in May of 1983, Reagan laid out the basic reality that every Second Amendment supporter understands.

“It’s a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun control laws,” Reagan said.

Reagan knew what he was talking about – having felt the “nasty truth” personally when a madman trying to impress a movie star put a bullet in the president during an assassination attempt in March of 1981.

But he knew it’s more than just personal. As a former governor of California who signed laws that stiffened penalties for using a firearm to commit a crime, he knew it as a lawmaker who understood the Constitution as the framers wrote it.

And he knew the NRA understood that, too.

“You know, I’ve always felt a special bond with the members of your group,” he said in that speech in Phoenix, according to a transcript from the American Presidency Project.

“You live by Lincoln’s words, ‘Important principles may and must be inflexible.’ Your philosophy put its trust in people. So, you insist on individuals being held responsible for their actions. The NRA believes that America’s laws were made to be obeyed and that our constitutional liberties are just as important today as 200 years ago.”

Then he got to the heart of the matter:

“And by the way, the Constitution does not say that government shall decree the right to keep and bear arms. The Constitution says ‘… the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.’”

Check out the video here:

And that’s exactly the argument the gun grabbers are trying desperately to avoid amid the ginned-up, media-fomented outrage over supposedly lax gun control laws in the wake of the Parkland massacre.

At its core, the gun control movement simply does not accept the fact that the Constitution guarantees the natural rights of American citizens to own firearms.

he American Civil Liberties Union makes the leftist position crystal clear:

”Except for lawful police and military purposes, the possession of weapons by individuals is not constitutionally protected. Therefore, there is no constitutional impediment to the regulation of firearms.”

In other words, for liberals, American gun owners are like teenagers constantly being reminded by vigilant parents that “driving is a privilege, not a right.”

Gun ownership, in this warped view, is not a fundamental right of self-defense against crime, or a right of preparation to defend the country against tyranny, as the Founders intended. It’s a hobby, for rural hicks who enjoy hunting, for instance – and it exists solely at the sufferance of those who rule.

After an atrocity like the Parkland massacre, the Democrats who want to rule the country are making it clear that their patience with what they consider the wayward children of the gun-rights movement is running out.

And the Democrats’ willing acolytes in the mainstream media are doing everything they can to manufacture the belief that the majority of the American public are behind moves to curtail a fundamental American liberty.

Ronald Reagan knew better — and the NRA does, too. Reagan was not the gun-rights absolutist many Second Amendment activists would prefer, or that gun grabbers would caricature. As Bearing Arms pointed out, he supported some gun control measures during his governor days amid 1960s social convulsions and the rise of the Black Panther movement.

But he knew that Americans have and support the individual right to bear arms. Remember, Reagan was also the president who, surrounded by the finest, deadliest security staff in the world, carried his own gun while in office, according to Brad Meltzer.

“It’s a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun control laws,” Reagan said, in that speech to the NRA in Phoenix.

That speech was from almost 35 years ago.

But it could have been from an argument yesterday.

  1. I wholeheartedly agree with what president Reagan said 35 years ago! I am a retired widow, I have hunted my entire adult life, took hunters safety at 12 years old and I still belong to NRA! What happened at the school in Parkland Florida, is the direct result of failure by our government law officials! It has nothing to do with Gun Control! That 19 year old kid should have been stopped by law enforcement when they were told by the foster parents about his violent threats in the first place!

  8. Dan Ariely on why international dating is so unsatisfying

    I had my first dating experience in life online, And then I met a quite a few girls “on average, there is nothing in any afrointroduction dating site other experience in life that has made me think of myself as an unwanted commodity item quite so much as this. As a man in my thirties who is unhealthy in height (5’8) I fight against about 25% to 75% numbers, And the women seem almost universally to be working extra carefully to exclude me and almost always come across as extremely entitled, Both in written and in unsaid ways. And could not blame them for it! They just learn the economics of scarcity, well. There the populace is about 75% women, With many of the men being gay. where there, I can get a taste of what dating is like for all of those other world I didn’t have to play some stupid hyper masculinized pursuer who throws semi sincere interest at a hundred women until one of them returns a peep, But situations actually can develop somewhat symmetrically and organically. Clearly response for me is to get back into a world like that, Despite not being very showing an interest anymore for any other reason. (My passion these days is selection and development.)either way, This become a big rant, But we single for a year, Face the prospect of a few more, And routines get to me.

    There are no doubt some men who succeed very well in this environment, But it seems that for someone like me to do so, I will need to, completely, Be conscious of playing the game and pretty much doing anything but presenting an unashamed and version of self expression. And why should women want to date you if your not prepared make the step?Women don’t want direct and. they really want charm, puzzle, excitement. For one trite the perfect, When I’m commenting on some nerdy web forum, And my sweetheart asks me what I’m doing, i cannot say, “I’m coming into contact on a web forum, i say, “I’m engaging in messages” And paint the air of some upmarket 19th century aristocrat. Or i say, “a similar thing I do every night, sweetie, Try and take around the globe, But even the actual most cultured, literate, Women hopes to be charmed, She wants that emotionally dominant rogue to game her. try some fine great, Long term caring companion, You need to develop both the personal rapport and shared interests, But also the romantic game/charm that makes her tingle for you. That’s why my future plans involve making the best of the good and bad points I have and who I am, Who is someone who refuses to strive to be anybody but the person i wanted. Women cannot stand me and I’ll live. Women don’t want direct and. I’ve read the SS document and heard Ross Jeffries tapes. The shit performs. I don’t like people who use it and it’s not for me. bullshit I can detect disgusts me, throughout the genders. I know the arguments quite well and I know human instinct quite well. When you’re learning a language, you don’t say “chatting French isn’t me” You make the sounds that seem weird at first. to the, Feeling like I need to spend my whole life making all my chitchats with women crafted according to some stupid shit I don’t actually feel isn’t worth it for me. But I say no to this, And the anger at the advantage that the person of my dreams isn’t good enough for a woman will drive me to more success, on my own terms.

    Do you enjoy any kind recreation, Horsing roughly, drawing pranks, Play actor, prodding stories, thinking about, Scheming, as well as?Yes all of that, in a way that isn’t appealing to women. the level of humour I enjoy includes dry self deprecation and obscure and nerdy tech jokes, And I literally am part of for what reason women don’t get into computer science jobs. You can actually see the repulsive magnetic fields lines as they form patterns well away from me at parties, Not quite knowing why they will move but doing so anyhow. And guess what happens? I have the identity of leader, And i’ll develop myself into more of one, And women can just go to guys like you when to merely tingle and shit. Do you have other interests besides encoding travel, training books, movie downloads, an item?little, just a (And I know where your usernane is from), Yes if I’m ski with a girl, And some other belongings that vary over time, Including most that are stereotypically male appeal. I love sitting in front of UFC with friends at a bar.)But naturally, I apologize if it appears I’m playing a version of Eric Berne’s game “why don’t you, indeed but, Or ressentiment or glorifying my own powerlessness or regardless of what. i seriously am likable to some, But I just take a long time to know, possesses to be in person over time, And it can’t be the sort of whiny entitled women online who are smart enough to be able to the economics of scarcity:) My own best strategy will be a two pronged attack make a ton greater expense and get a lot more power (in my view, This is more honest than clowning my way through some speed attraction value elicitation NLP bullshit that revolts me). And along with it get off the ‘net more and do some things where there is continual interaction with women. situations, I know from training, Even though such things aren’t that enjoyable at first, They can take on a life of their own. the concept that supposedly Sartre got into philosophy to pick up girls. Thus when I talk with women, I make sure you only talk about the 5% (unit, buildings, civilization, romantic relationships, psychology, get) That women like. Leadership is about people believing you have any of those powers (Or some a couple of I forgot). And that’s where you will need to entirely wrong!You expect such a belief is worthless. You think that people give up something when they follow a leader. You’ll hit the point at which such things are so attractive that your other “problems” Won’t legal matter. You think you’re better than women due to the fact fall for speed seduction value elicitation bullshit, But at that time you think you’re hot shit (“unique character of leader”) And take up same shit in your seeking of power. Do you think women will appeal to your intelligence once you can buy them?the more likely framework is that yes, There are girls that will fall for power and money; that is correct, There are ladies who will be seduced by “tryout of value, But you wil discover numbers of women.

    I think there are different types of leadership. you will find the kind you describe. Then there is the kind where you are someone who can’t be ignored simply because you are technically better than others around. When I’m in a novice opera, I have my music memorized before the folks know their notes, And in no way thought miss my part. visitors notice. When I’m taking a night class I say my opinion out loud if it is what the teacher wants to hear or not, And I got 100% within the last few 4 CS course I took. That’s a kind of leadership. I’m not as smart or talented as many people on this web site, But I think I have tasted more failure, And am more afraid of underachieving, And I want success more badly than the bulk of the rest, and bet your ass I have more free time. I am never embarrassed with who I am, And I will meet you personally, mean you have my real name, and check you in the eye. whilst others were out doing “easy” it last month, I posted my first two iPad apps and made 1200 dollars. It’s not very much, to be positive, But give me valuable time, And it’s a nice addition to working professional as well. Give me quite a while, See if people I’m assisting look up to me, And tell me I don’t have the a unique character of a leader. I think I still won’t be up to scratch for women though. I just resent the reality that I am nearly completely unattractive to them, Being the owner I really am and strive to be. I look around on online personals sites and I’d be thrilled to get a loving with at least 1/3 of them. In nearly all the areas of life, you will see the genders with symmetry, But someone who thinks low status males like me are playing in the same universe as almost any woman has just never been to an online dating site. Overcompensation? bonk yes. Being more of a technical leader spot I want for my own terms, Quite unlike being a phony who pretends that traveling gives me some stupid emotions that it doesn’t. I hate air-ports and I will say so if asked. in something sense, Having money and success will be my best “project” that will permit women to discover the real me deep down. And I’m certainly not so bad, Despite often times displaying my worst qualities, Such as on this page:)in my circumstances, online dating services is indeed an absurdly negative experience. Compared to a more equal ambiance, I do feel its pull to make me cynical and less happy to be a man. I will see what kind of women I can attract in a few years, And the good part is that I simply need one, And I will worth the hell out of her when I find her.

    Then there is the kind where you are someone who can’t be ignored simply because you are technically better than others aroundThis is very much not leadership; This is fineness. That can be extremely off putting if not handled rightly. specifically if you dominate proceedings simply because of being the best. In fact from your post I suspect this is problem. ShrugI’ve been touching women online that are off putting with their directness and surety even if it is them you do have to be a bit cautious when starting out a relationship. the particular is impersonal so if done wrong you can come across very easily as arrogant and superior :)Give me lots of years, See if people I’m practicing with look up to me, And tell me I don’t have the unique character of a leader. I think I still won’t be up to scratch for women though. People look up to you for many reasons I doubt you will ever achieve the respect you want the way you’re heading. It’s much more stimulating.

    Forgot within this post. The first is your _absolutely_ ashamed of who you are. You don’t think you’ll be adequate for women! That’s a wild self degradation on your side. You’d take 1/3 of the women on internet dating sites? What kind of valid self estimation is that said to be?Second, No one likes you technical perfection. Technical faultlessness is not artistry, in whose sale benefits; Artistry is all about being, stealing space, emotion, And taking on honesty. Things that aren’t quantified merely aren’t rational. This threatens to stray from the topic, So I’ll cut it short for now and skip to the clearer statement, and that is: There is someone any better then you. society we live in is huge. And what will you do when you meet see your face, If your ego is dependent being the technical best?for some reason you seek out visible status symbols to mark your ego’s progress. nobody can be the President. you can’t say everyone can program. Being the most is not a victory.

    I think you’ll have an easier time meeting women (And many people) If you become a little more culturally active outgoing. your is dominated by career/technical interests, Which from your self seller’s description (And i only say this with kindness) Seems to make you become a monotone personality. I sense that even you yourself are bored and frustrated with this monotony. If that will be at all true, you would consider, What excitement and joy would you be bringing to a potential relationship?You’ve probably adopted your technical and career focus because of your dream to live up to your potential and be successful. and that’s admirable, absolutely. But there is lots more to having a fulfilling life than just the virtue of productive work. forgive me if I overreach, But have you made a negative value judgement on your own affinity for the world, In the domain name of becoming a more productive and better programmer?A worldly curiosity is what will provide breadth and diversity of experience, Which in turn forces you to a more interesting person, And consequently make you a more creative problem solver and team member. That’s an unusual and exciting hobby, An art that connects you with a practice spanning thousands of years. last but not least, There are plenty of cool, Nerdy music girls that it too (especially you’re near a college with a good arts program). You mentioned it was there you had some success with women. Those aren’t what dating is growing rapidly about, well. It’s also about being located as a person, By the other person. But you have to have something interesting to discover. And for that you have to be curious about the world first. so to be on topic: It’s from someone who has had several very enjoyable long term relationships thanks to online dating services.

    appreciate your sharing succumbing to my charms and delurking, funny!. That left me nearly unemployable approximately a year, And I’m just really starting to re establish myself career wise, And I am more aimed at programming than I’ve ever been before, And I’m enjoying it a lot more than previously. I pretty much have nothing in common and nothing to offer a woman, Yes I profoundly believe this. If I were a woman I’d frankly want to pick a taller, more appealing, user friendly, plus much more charming guy like you. I’m fierce, I’m harnessed, I’m aimed at tunnel vision, And right now I don’t give a fuck about trying fake some stupid attitude full of flowery feelings. (calculations, Hard development, Programming basics, Nerdy trivia.) I’ve tried travel and it’s not just that I’m not interested, I make an effort to dislike it, And do not want to do it. I don’t need to actually be in a new place to discover new ideas. I don’t have to try new foods either, I eat to create a killer body right now. (or making up desperate ways of trying to avoid the yawning cataclysm of misogyny:) ) One is that for men in his thirties, Potential does not mean shit, And underachieving is repugnant. you can all your limbs, the perfect brain, A music and singing voice. Drop the self beating attitude. yes indeed, Failure begets failure and strengthening negative mental patterns, Which I am extremely familiar with having spent years of my life alone and frustrated. I just know that online personals are a very well awful experience for me, Having spent years on them, As well has having had the pleasure to meet much considerably better women in the more conventional way. Just read all the replies to me from any man who has became popular there. It is _all_ about realizing that geeky men are piece of shit commodities who nobody wants as is, And recognizing that it is a game where presenting a true personality free from guile is a hopeless proposition. You will know this as disdain, But if so it is additionally cold truth, And these things are just simply different universes for men versus women online. I’ll be more careful soon!

    Ask a girl to reveal to you a joke, Laugh at it actually. Then if you have one too, But warn her that your sense of humor is dry and nerdy (accompanied by a grin) 🙂 they will likely love that!Your identity won’t drive people away, so long as you make a good first impression. from then on, You can be yourself!to employ, make an attempt speed dating. If you really think no girl has an interest, Then simply for fun, Write YES to every girl you meet so they can tell you how many matches I bet you’ll get more than you expect 😉

    Actually I think you’re missing the actual. Certainly he could actively engage in strategies that work in online dating sites, And doing so would increase his chances of success in getting dates through online dating sites. His point is that in doing so he plays a completely different game to other dating environments like amateur opera and that the whole game is unpleasant and unappealing to him. So if I was actually aiming to give WilliamLP dating advice, It often to find avenues more suited to his talents. But if we’re discussing online dating I think I’d say the things it emphasizes and encourages are contrary to stuff find good compatible relationships.

    I think 95% of ‘game’ is simply to ask as many women as they possibly can, And to not get discouraged when you buy shot down. (for me personally, I think most of the potency of the ‘fast seduction’ crap is that it gives you something to focus on besides getting shot down.)Everyone wants something different, And there really is a strong ‘right place at the right time’ component. My exposure to on line dating was that you needed to differentiate yourself through better writing (And through writing particular to the profile) And to decrease standards some. (Let’s be a reality check. The ‘selection pressure’ on line is even stronger than true to life. You’re competitive against a hoard of lonely men, All of whom can lie about their stats. i am talking about, That’s fine if you are just trying to find laid; But I don’t think it’s a great filter to use when looking for a relationship.

    How some people do you talk to?

    usually it takes hundreds of attempted contacts to hit one winner. a large number of, most females will be down with this. You could spend your whole life trying to chat up 18 22 yo 8 10 looks girls or with lots of messages to someone you don’t really like, i am not saying it’s a solid idea (Or that you’re up to this, Just an instance)

    “I might need to, very much, Be conscious of playing the game and pretty much doing anything but presenting an unashamed and simple version of self expression,stop. exact same build (in fact a bit thinner). nonetheless younger. The entire thing was simply a farce. This is nothing new. definitely I get annoyed, Put up something ridiculous, And in come outcome. Ultimately it resulted in three different dates all of these went bad enough to turn me off of dating for another year. However my point is women don’t care for extended forwardness. rrn any respect. But they can not respond until they pay. So you ping some individuals, And in a lot of cases don’t get a response simply because they haven’t paid yet (But the site doesn’t let you know that). Then you ping a few more. eventually and you broaden your scope, You’re merely sending carefully crafted, your personal messages, you’re using a shotgun approach. (and, on the whole guys are.)at the same time, The women aren’t initiating usually, They’re letting the guys come to them. due to the fact guys are all shotgunning, The women are receiving flooded. if they’re even reading all their messages, They clicking through fast looking for any excuse to reject each one and move on to another location.

    , This is in contrast to where I’ve actually had success with women in the past amateur classical singing and opera. There the populace is about 75% women, With some of the men being gay. so there, I can get a taste of what dating is like for the rest of the world,This is a very accurate question. Rock Eisteddfod didn’t just provide emasculated nerds with an alternative to the Jock Eisteddfod that is competitive sport. It for a few blissful hours each week, We had the girls to ourselves. Girls who will dance. In tights. towards soundtrack of Jamiroquai.,

    internet dating can work very well (It worked for me) But wait and see. you will need time until you really get it. work, run through, activity. Don’t give up individuals no luck right away. Go with Facebook or any other kind of conversation platform that are not invented exclusively for dating. People are just much holistic there. With some practise you can easier than you think figure out if there’s a date potential just by looking at a profile.

    I have started to use an online dating service for the first time about 4 6 weeks ago. It is operate. Cut your physical features to the following: Like + subscriber. If I LIKE man or women (just by the looks), Then show me the principle info. If I LIKE the basic info, They get a notification and if they LIKE me then that’s it. Let us email additional from OUR OWN client. ordinary as that. My first 2 weeks I was pinging everyone I was consumed by. That did operate (personally). It’s when I just kick back and decide to wait that I realized it’s mainly the women who choose in this game. Also if someone contacts the relationship is usually much easier. My 2 amateur cents.

    it’s rig.
