Senator Dick Durban: An Armed Citizenry is a Suicide Pact

Democrats are fervently working to render the Second Amendment a blight on humanity; an antiquated notion of what it means to be an American.  According to these defenders of “democracy,” today’s citizens are no longer in need of weapons for protection.  Why we have the police to answer at a moment’s notice.   Why do we need “assault weapons”? 
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m getting the feeling that democratic politicians are portraying everyone as possible predators.  Ask any white male about that stigmatization.  And in doing so, step by step, they’re working towards abolition and eventually confiscation.  Sen. Dick Durbin recently stated that the Second Amendment is not a suicide pact:

 Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) on Wednesday at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on guns compared Fordham University law professor Nicholas Johnson's stance on the Second Amendment to a "suicide pact."

"When I listened to you and Mr. Hardy describe the Second Amendment, it's a suicide pact. Because by your definition, what has become common in America is unacceptable in a civilized country," Durbin said, drawing applause from spectators at the hearing.

"I made a very different point, senator," Johnson contested.

"The point I want to make is this: if it is common in America to have a military assault weapon with a 100-round magazine, if that is common for self-defense in America, God save this country," Durbin said, again drawing applause.

Only a totalitarian would consider the Second Amendment a suicide pact.  The Second Amendment is the guarantor of our liberties, not the reassurances of ambitious politicians.

 Senator Dick Durban projected concern about the rights of law officers.  I recently watched a documentary about Charles Whitman and the Texas bell tower shooting.  This tragedy happened in 1966.  The low-information voters can click on the link below for details.  Whitman had the advantage, but he didn’t factor in the response of the community.

The police arrived.  They were undermanned and outgunned.  They were pinned down, unable to get to the tower.  Then the unthinkable happened the likes that would make democratic politicians like Dick Durban shudder.  Citizens came out of their homes with rifles.  They laid down suppressing fire.  Charles Whitman couldn’t move.  He couldn’t poke his head up without a barrage of bullets whizzing past his head.  This allowed two officers and a CITIZEN to enter the tower and eventually kill Charles Whitman.


But according to Senator Dick Durban, an armed citizenry is a suicide pact.
