[Video] Gun Rights Supporters Take Over Anti-Gun Presentation, Veteran Stands Up to Anti-Gun Organizers
Wow, what a powerful video. The video above takes place in Illinois and is an anti-gun forum hosted by local Democrats. During the presentation, which was being made almost exclusively to pro-gun rights supporters, presenters argued that the Second Amendment may no longer be needed today.
Well, veteran Kevin Tully finally had enough, stood up, and addressed the presenters with some hard questions, to cheers from the audience.
Here is a transcript of Tully’s comments (via Legal Insurrection),
Sir, sir. While you’re standing up. I’ve sat here [inaudible] and I’d like to agree with the professor. Everyone standing in this room right now, especially the veterans in the room right now, know, that we are all Americans. The problem with this country right now is it’s us and it’s f***ing them. We need to stop this crap.
Now, the thing I would like you to answer, sir. And I did go to war for this country. Whether it was for everyone in here’s ability to have oil and gas in their cars, or the banks, or whatever. I went to war for my country.
And I went to war for your ability to have the First Amendment, to say what you stood up there and said today, to write what you want to write in your newspaper, and have whatever opinion you want to have. You can practice whatever religious freedoms you want. I would like you to answer the question, since you just said that one of the rights that I went to war over to defend, that is inalienable, to every American citizen. If this discussion was going on, about your First Amendment rights, would you still have the same opinion that we don’t need that any more either.
Tully ended his speech by reinforcing this point, “The threat of tyranny, today, is no less than at the turn of the century in 1900, in 1800, or in 1700!”
Well done sir, well done.
