Another Honest Liberal Writes about Gun Ownership and Second Amendment Rights

Late last year, I shared a very powerful article by an admitted liberal who concluded that gun control was impractical and illogical.

Now I want to share a New York Times column from another leftist. Justin Cronin also supports the right of gun ownership, but he offers a more personal reason for his support of the Second Amendment.

Here are some of the key excerpts from his column.

I am a New England liberal, born and bred. I have lived most of my life in the Northeast — Boston, New York and Philadelphia — and my politics are devoutly Democratic. I am also a Texas resident and a gun owner. I have half a dozen pistols in my safe, all semiautomatics, the largest capable of holding 20 rounds. …I’m currently shopping for a shotgun, either a Remington 870 Express Tactical or a Mossberg 500 Flex with a pistol grip and adjustable stock. …I am my family’s last line of defense. I have chosen to meet this responsibility, in part, by being armed. It wasn’t a choice I made lightly.

    As a group liberals are the number one threat to America.

    Let me read that again ” It was not a choice I made lightley” . I got an idea for the poor media rich liberal who just wants us to feel sorry for him and his painful idea of buying this gun . Why don’t you move to Dc and chicago where they in this country the highest crime rates in the United States .Instead of you nice guarded fence community where you live at with your rich liberal friends.Then you will see if you made your choice lightley then you will see why people in this country need guns to make sure.That they don’t have criminals trying to hurt them

    His error in his thinking is where he states “I am my families last line of defense”. He should be thinking “I am my families first line of defense”. The last line of defense is when the police show up 15 minutes later after the crime has been committed or stopped by the armed citizen.

      I agree 100% with you.

    Good reason, but should not apologize for using his 2nd amendment rights. And of course he would never think to have to use it to protect from tyranny of his government.
