During the December 2016 Republican presidential debates Chris Christie said, “people across the country are scared to death of terrorists” and Mike Huckabee said “Americas are just plain scared”. Both of them implying that Americans are quaking in their boots because of San Bernardino terrorist attack. WRONG!
We sing in our national anthem that America is the home of the free and the land of the BRAVE. I guess Christie and Huckabee think differently. They say we Americans are “plain scared” and “scared to death”??
America has 22 million military veterans? Are these warriors scared to death of terrorists?? There are many millions more Americans that know how to hunt and shoot guns. Are all these Americans going to cower in fear and let terrorists terrorism them?
Americans would stop any terrorist attack in short order if politicians would just allow Americans to have their Second Amendment right to carry arms. Americans have over 350 million firearms. About half of the homes in America have one or more firearms. Almost all homes in the heartland have guns. Terrorist and mass shooter attacks occur in gun free zones because no one but them has guns. Would they even try an attack where people could stop their attack cold? I doubt it.
I understand that Christie and Huckabee were trying to get a bump in the polls by implying that Americans want more government security but that is not what most Americans want. Americans fear government that is not acting in the best interest of Americans far more than they fear some mass shooting.
More Americans fear that Obama and Hillary will try to take away their means of self-defense than they fear mass shootings from terrorists. They fear that Obama will allow in more and more Islamic terrorists in the name of PC bull dung. They fear that Congress will do nothing to stop the “progressive” engineered destruction of our nation, borders and culture. They fear a government that is downplaying the dangers of Islam will get thousands of us Americans killed. They fear after that happens government will use that as an excuse to declare martial law and to take away our constitutional rights. Some even think this is all planned.
If Americans were now scared to death of terrorist attacks, the shopping malls would be a little less crowded this Christmas season…don’t you think?
Obviously some liberals were scared to death on the disarmed left coast when they shut down the schools over a hoax. That happened because schools in California are gun free zones. The only solution to any threat is to close down the schools and to cower in fear just like the terrorists want.
If they keep that up, Californians are going to get more stupid than they already are. However, more likely, they will learn to ignore threats and that is even more dangerous. Terrorists know schools are easy targets because they don’t allow teachers to have any weapons to protect themselves and their students.
Liberals that want big brother to protect everyone will quake in fear when they figure out that big brother cannot be everywhere to protect them. If they had the means to protect themselves and others, like do most conservative Americans in the heartland, they would be far less fearful people.
Christie and Huckabee saying Americans are scared to death of terrorists is just music to the ears of terrorists. After all, terrorists would not be called terrorists if they were not all about bringing terror to people.
What Christie and Huckabee should be saying on national TV is that if I am elected president, I am going to make sure that adult law-abiding Americans have the right to carry weapons. I will enable law-abiding citizens to carry arms so they can send potential mass murders straight to hell before they can carry out their murderous plan or try to play any future get out of jail free card.
Christie is governor of New Jersey. Constitutional carry that would prevent terrorism is not allowed in his state. Gov. Christie can start by supporting constitution carry in New Jersey. Was constitutional carry allowed in Arkansas when Huckabee was governor? I don’t think so. It now is, but I have not seen any spike in gun deaths in Arkansas or any of the other six states that have constitutional carry laws.
No wonder the people who Christie knows and represents quake in their boots over terrorism. Leaders like Christie leave people with no means of self-defense. However, most Americans that have the means to protect themselves are not scared to death of terrorists.
Gun free zones are an easy target for terrorists. They should be outlawed and constitutional carry should be allowed in all states and cities. If that happened, there would be almost no mass shootings in America.
Let’s provide realistic solutions to terrorism rather than telling terrorists that Americans are scared to death of them. Most of us are scared to death of “progressive” politicians that open our borders to those that hate us. These open border politicians also want to take away our means of self-defense. We are not scared to death of terrorists, we are scared that traitors within our own government are aiding and abetting those that hate America.
After a couple more major terrorist attacks one of two things will happen.
Law abiding citizens will demand and get the right to carry weapons or government will start kicking down doors in some insane effort to attempt to remove all weapons from Americans. One action will prevent future mass shootings. The other action will promote a civil war. Because many in America are not even scared to death that government empowered storm troopers could survive in the heartland for very long.
So let me ask. Are Christie and Huckabee speaking for you when they say Americans are scared to death of terrorists?
