Kirsters Baish| In general, Conservatives in America don’t seem too interested in European opinions when it comes to the Second Amendment and gun laws in the United States. However, one Italian woman laid out the facts via Twitter in a way that everyone can understand.
The Twitter user by the name of Redeemed Goddaughter wrote, “Americans, I’m watching the #GunControl protests from Italy. Take a European’s advice: Last century our governments disarmed us. Now, in Germany & the UK they arrest you for Twitter & FB posts. Lesson? If the gov’t takes your 2nd Amendment, one day it’ll take your 1st.”

If we were to compromise the human rights enumerated in the Second Amendment to keep and bear arms, the threat to our country’s citizens would skyrocket. Americans were given this right by our forefathers in order to be able to protect ourselves. What do we have left if we don’t have self defense? By definition, criminals will still find a way to get their hands on firearms. The only thing that will change if we implement stricter gun control laws is that law-abiding American citizens will lose the ability to protect themselves.
Conservative Tribune reported:
It is a simple fact that the substantial portion of the citizenry in America who are armed with modern weapons is really all that stands in the way of a tyrannical government from wanton infringement of our rights.
As the woman noted, much of Europe has implemented strict gun control measures over the years that have left the population largely disarmed and incapable of effectively standing up in defense of their rights.
Thus, the citizens of many European countries have been all but silenced, forced to submit to various speech laws and other injustices, as a disarmed populace is largely viewed more as subjects instead of sovereign citizens in the eyes of all-powerful governments.
The issue is tyrants rising to power in our country and our inability to resist them if this were to happen. These people want nothing more than to keep anyone who gets in their way quiet.
They are aware that if the population is armed, the citizens of our country could successfully resist a tyranical takeover or overthrow a tyranical/totalitarian regime. This is the real reason why the leaders of the left aee so insistent on their push for gun control. We cannot allow history to repeat itself. If the government strips us of our basic human rights to self-defense and forcibly disarms us all, our country, and thus the world will be doomed.
If the Jews had guns when the Nazis were rounding them up and sticking them in concentration camps, the outcome of the Holocaust may have been very different. We must learn from history and not let it repeat itself. We must protect our Second Amendment right in order to keep ourselves, our children and our Republic safe.
