Billy Johnson – You say want, I say need
NRA commentator Billy Johnson on the truth of want vs. need in the context of the Second Amendment, the truth about gun violence and the misconception that we must justify the rights we are born with.
“We are being asked to restrict access to semi-automatic rifles in order to prevent their use in less than 2.5% of all murders. That’s irrational…Restricting our access to semi-automatic rifles will not make a statistically significant impact on our safety and security. Even more concerning is that as a society we have willingly accepted the premise that we should have to justify exercising our Constitutional rights. Those rights are not granted to us. We are born with them.”
