Second Amendment and the Gun Grab
The Virtual President of the United States addressing Congress*

as the video.
And now, we must turn to the issue of gun violence in America today. Because the latest mass
shootings in Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut leave us all, liberal and conservative, Republican and
Democrat apalled and disgusted at the carnage. Now, some people, and that includes many of you in this room
tonight, want to place the blame for this horror on things like 30-round magazines or semi-automatic rifles. We
want to blame something, anything that we can control. But what we really want to ban is violence, and murder and
insanity. But we don't talk about that, though, because deep in our hearts each of us knows that violence and
murder and insanity are built into the human condition, and likely always will be.
You know, there are two kinds of animals in this world: predators and prey. No one watches a
leopard chase down a gazelle and denies that the gazelle has a right to use its hoofs and horns to protect itself
from the predator. But there are people in this room tonight and all across the country who would deny that same
right to self defense to other human beings. Such people seem to think that the way to stop the leopard is to cut
the horns off of the gazelle, that by somehow making it easier for the predator that the predator will simply go
away. My friends, this is insane. When you make it easier for the predator, you get more predators.
So let's start with the so-called assault weapons, more properly known as semi-automatic
rifles. In 2011, the total firearm murders came to 8, 583, according to the FBI. Now during that time, the total
murders committed by rifes - all rifles, not just semi-automatic rifles - were 323. That's 3% of all murders.
Hammers and clubs kill half again as many people as rifles; hands and feet murder twice as many. And knives kill
five times more Americans than all rifles combined. Preventable medical errors kill about 98,000 people per year.
Medical malpractice kills more than twelve times as many people as are murdered in the US each year. That's more
than 300 times the number killed by all rifles, not just the so-called assault rifles.
And yet, no one talks about limits on hammers or knives or doctors or hospitals. No one does
that because the good we perceive from hammers and knives and doctors far outweigh their perceived harm. And yet,
studies show that firearms prevent anywhere from 800,000 to over two million violent crimes every year. The lowest
estimate means that 100 times more violent crimes were prevented with firearms than the total murders committed
with firearms - that's 100 times as many.
Now, in October 2007, Amanda Collins was walking to her car after a night class at the
University of Nevada at Reno. Amanda had a concealed carry permit for her 9mm Glock that she carried for self
defense. Unfortunately for Amanda, UNR is, like most college campuses, a gun-free zone. So, like the law-abiding
citizen that she is, she did not have her gun with her in this gun-free zone when she was attacked by James Bila.
Bila raped her on the UNR campus, less than 300 yards from the campus police office.
He then walked away, and a few months later, this human predator went on to murder 19-year-old
Brianna Denison. Amanda Collins went on to say, "I know, having been the first victim, that Brianna Denison would
still be alive, had I been able to defend myself that night." Therefore, I am directing the Virtual Attorney
General to aggressively challenge any gun control laws that violate Amanda Collins' right not to be raped, and
Brianna Denison's right not to be murdered.
You're not forced to abandon your First Amendment right when you enter Chicago or New York, or
your Fifth Amendment rights when you walk onto a college campus. As Virtual President, I will veto on the spot,
without hesitation but with a great deal of pleasure, any and all attempts to destroy any of the Bill of Rights of
the Constitution, of the United States of America. Because, when all is said and done, the Second Amendment to the
Constitution is not there to protect us from criminals, and the people calling for gun control know this, that's
why they want gun control instead of crime control. That's why they want laws that, at the stroke of a pen, turn
law-abiding citizens into criminals.
The second Amendment is there to protect the American people from tyranny. The Second Amendment
is there to protect the American people from politicians. The Second Amendment is there to protect the American
People from... us.
Now, some politicians claim American deserve a vote on this issue. Okay, let's have a vote.
Those of you advocating infringement on the right of the people to keep and bear arms need to go to the American
people with the 28th Amendment, which would simply read: The Second Amendment to the Constitution is hereby
repealed. That would, for the first time, give you the legal authority to do what you have been doing and what you
are trying to do now in direct violation of your oath of office, to defend the entire Constitution of the United
States, not just the parts you happen to approve of.
So go ahead, go to the American people, and tell them that ultimate power is not longer to be
vested in the people who can't be trusted with that power, according to you. Tell them only the government can have
that power now. You go out there, and try to convince the people of the 38 states that you're going to need to get
that amendment passed, to agree with your opinion of them vs their opinion of you. I dare you.
Twelve million unarmed men, women and children were unable to resist being murdered by their
own National Socialist government in Germany. Perhaps fifty million unarmed men, women and children were murdered
by their own Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Fifty million Chinese murdered by their own government, under Mao
who also disarmed his people. And in Cuba, and in Vietnam, and in the killing fields of Cambodia. Now you say that
can't happen here? You say we're protected? By what? By the Constitution that you're in the process of destroying?
You're in violation of your oaths of office by so much as introducing this legislation, let alone passing it.
My fellow Americans, the previous inhabitants of this chamber watched as 100 million people
were murdered, after being disarmed by their own governments. Every single oneof those men, women and children were
as real and precious and irreplaceable as the children at Newtown. And I tell you here and now that I will be
damned if I will let that happen to the American people.

---------------------- end of speech ------- my comments below -------
The above speech is fiction, however the facts and statistics presented are true. As this
speech demonstrates, using FBI data, at least 800,000 violent crimes are prevented by firearms each year, and
Congress and the President want us to ignore those 800,000 in favor of twenty kids killed in a school. In other
words, let's take away all the guns to save twenty kids and let the 800,000 others die. They're using poor logic,
because they have no real case against firearms, and they know it. They want to disarm everyone, well, almost
everyone. Their bodyguards will keep their guns, but you and I can't have guns or armed bodyguards.
I say, let them lead by example. If they - the President, Congress and all the politicians who
want to register or ban guns - if all of them agree to disarm themselves and their bodyguards, THEN they can
approach us with a request, not an order, to disarm. Remember, we the people are the ultimate power in this
republic, and they are public servants, elected by us to do what we decide is in our best interest. They take an
oath to defend, not destroy, the Constitution and Bill of Rights. Sadly, they appear to believe that they are the
government. No, no, no, politicians, you work for us, remember? Read the law, this is a government of, by and for
the people, where you do what we want or you will be dumped. So listen up, we are not going to be your saves.
Have a look at our Constitution. It consists of seven articles, which describe how our
government is to be defined and operated. It defines the authority of each of the three branches: Legislature
(Congress, comprising the Senate and House of Reps), Executive (President) and Judiciary (courts). Look closely at
the 17 powers granted to Congress, and see if you can find the one which grants Congress the power to disarm 'we
the people'. You won't find it, because Congress was never granted that power by the Constitution - they just
assume they have powers they were never given. My question to Congress and the President: "What part of "shall not
be infringed" do you politicians not understand? You don''t have the authority to do squat to we the people if we
don't agree, so get your big, fat, ugly agenda off our rights."
Senators Feinstein and Cuomo and Hillary Clinton are eager to take our guns, but it appears
they have no probem arming Al Qaeda (Hillary, you really think we don't know?) and other violent groups, so they
can pretend there's a reason to go to war someplace. Let's see, so our government can support terrorism
worldwide, cause thousands of deaths, torture people in the name of keeping us safe, but we can't have guns because
a few people get killed? Who is going to protect us from our violent and terrorist government? They are causing and
supporting more terrorism in the word than any country, except perhaps China. But hey, we the people are the ones
to be disarmed, eh? Look, Feinstein and all, we've studied some history, and we've seen how millions of people are
butchered after being disarmed.
Respected Senator Feinstein, President Obama and gun-control cronies, we regret that we will
not comply with your gun control bill, so will you kindly take that finely-crafted and demonic legislation, roll it
up tight and shove it up your tailpipes? If there was ever a human being who fit the description of 'scumbag', you,
Senator, are she. But Hillary runs a close second, so cheer up - she makes you look good!
Patriots, brothers and sisters of America, we are under attack by our own corrupt and
power-hungry government. Still in doubt about that? Check out Alex Jones on YouTube. And since our government is
now throwing everything they have at us, we should not give an inch. If they come for your guns, well, perhaps you
won't have any available for them to steal. Bury them far away, ammo too. Give them nothing. Or, since the
government makes such a big deal out of squirtguns and even drawings of guns, as if they're going to shoot anybody,
give them your squirtguns and drawings of guns, especially drawings and photos of assault rifles. I mean, if these
things are so horrible and dangerous, you would be glad to hand them over to those nice SWAT team guys who are
there to keep us all safe. And they will feel that they have done their patriotic duty, taking your squirtguns,
drawings and photos. You'll feel so much safer when you have no more toy guns, drawings and photos of those
dangerous, murdering weapons. Be sure to thank those boys.
Whatever you do, don't take any offensive actions, like verbally abusing them or shooting them
(with a squirtgun). It will only confirm to them that you are indeed a domestic terrorist who must be 'dealt with'.
And they are trained to deal with aggression - you will probably lose, even if you manage to get a few of those
guys wet. Violence on your part will be met with far more violence on their part. That's what they're good at, so
don't give them an excuse to escalate their violence. Give them all your squirtguns, rubberband guns, high-capacity
Glamour Magazines and all the BB ammo they can carry away. They will consider their visit a success, and you might
be left alone for awhile. Oh, they'll probably tear the place apart, searching for some real hardware, but they
can't find what isn't there.
And whatever else you do, don't give them any actual firearms (which of course you don't have),
so make sure you don't have any around. If you feel the need for some protection in your home or on your person,
while waiting to be raided, use a .22 pistol or revolver. It might not be included in the ban or registration, and
it can be used for self-defense. I know, it's underpowered, yada, yada. Not true. A hit with a .22 in the right
spot will stop even a determined attacker, and .22s are easier for most people to fire accurately, given the light
recoil, especially women and those with small hands and weak wrists. I can hit a 5-gallon bucket at 50 yards (150
feet) with one hand, and I don't practice. Think about it. My personal favorite: Bersa Firestorm 22, but it only
eats hot ammo, not bulk. CCI MiniMag I found the best, but it's hard to locate now.
