In the Gun Grabbers' Faces: Counter-Protesting the Morrisville, PA Anti-Gun Rally

The weather was as changeable as the gun haters' rhetoric. It started cloudy, then the sun came out, then it rained. First, they said they want to ban so-called assault weapons, then they said they don't want to take our guns. Not once did they express a concern for liberty, the most precious value. So it went in Morrisville, PA on May 11, 2013 at the Pre-Mother’s Day March against Gun Violence.

Hear their own terrible words:

In a speech rife with hypocrisy one speaker claimed she was a little afraid of the counter-protesters carrying guns. It didn't occur to her to think of our fears. There is a reason we stayed in Pennsylvania. We knew we couldn't go into Trenton, New Jersey (where their rally started) with our guns. The police would have arrested us. Even in Morrisville the township threatened to arrest open carriers. We ignored those threats and they backed down. Yet somehow the gun haters saw themselves as being threatened. The fear was totally irrational. The open carriers would have protected them had a criminal tried to harm them. Meanwhile, it is they, the gun haters, that want to send armed law enforcement officers after gun owners. Go figure.

In his speech Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell made the point that the National Rifle Association has endorsed background checks in the past. He also emphasized that former President Ronald Reagan was an advocate of gun control and that A rated Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) was one of the authors of the recently failed background check bill. Gun rights advocates should take note and realize that the Republican Party is not going to protect you from the gun haters.

Most of the rest of what the gun haters said was just appeals to emotion. Of course, it is difficult to think clearly when talking about loved ones killed, but the truth is that that is exactly when clear thinking is most needed. Going after our gun rights may seem like the quickest solution to the gun violence problem but it is not. It will only make things worse. I ask the gun haters to join us in calling for a real solution to the problem while leaving our gun rights intact. Support Law Enforcement Against Prohibition's call to end the drug war. For an in depth explanation of why we have the violence that we do and what to do about it please read, "Progressivism’s Violent World".

Mainstream media coverage of the event, “Pro and anti-gun groups rally in Morrisville” mentions the canceled and moved Little League Baseball games. Concerned Gun Owners of Bucks County, the group organizing the counter-protest, asked the gun haters to reschedule their rally out of respect for the young baseball players but, sadly, they refused.

This video has all the speakers from the pro-gun rally held before the gun grabbers crossed the bridge from Trenton, NJ:

  1. They would not like us to take away their right to free speech so why do they want to take away our RIGHT to own guns?

    1. Exactly. They get upset because we don't play nice but they should think about the fact that they want armed LEOs using force to control our guns.

  3. Why is it the anti-2nd amendment haters are gelded male types and feminist Real Men haters? I watch and always seems to be the case at these anti-2nd amendment rally's.

    1. Hardly "gelded."

      Lobotomized, maybe.

  4. "Common sense" = "I didn't do any homework, but I thought about the problem for a full 30 seconds and this is the first answer I came up with."

  5. No one wants your guns, you fools. You just want people to try to take your guns, then you'll feel justified in using them. Not gonna happen.

    1. No, they just want to ban them, right? You do know that there have been weapons bans before, no? They want an assault weapons ban to establish the principle that weapons can be banned. After that it is adios pistolas. Read the history of the UK. 100 years ago they started with "reasonable" controls & now they have no guns. Nice try but we're not falling for that line.

    2. Correct. Hellfire missiles will ensure innocent gun owners will be incinerated along with their guns.

  7. So if the debate is not about the gun why all the pictures of the gun? It is people who kill not the gun.
