MASSACRES like MANDALAY and TEXAS are No Reason for Stopping being Pro-Self Defence (guest Dave Workman is in Pacific Time)

Regardless how loudly liberals scream that conservatives must not use the highly publicized massacres such as recent ones in Mandalay in Las Vegas or the Texas Church to exploit their argument for self-defense, these same liberals already exploited the tragedy in calling for a ban on guns. It’s been said that if it weren’t for double standards, the Left might have no standards at all.

Objective observers can see that the Left ignores the fact that even Obama’s Center for Disease Control in 2013 showed that guns were used up to 100 times more frequently to save lives than to take one.

Second Amendment Foundation spokesperson Dave Workman is available to be your Talk Show interview guest on this topic.

Dave thinks Americans need to look at the mass murder massacres in proper perspective wherein as horrific as they are, they may be minor compared to horrific acts to come. And it is not right to leave potential victims of future massacres unprotected.

During your interview with Dave, he reminds your audience that ISIS claimed the Mandalay Massacre was an act of war by their soldier, a recent convert to Islam. Whether or not that is true is not as important as looking at the imminent possibility of ISIS issuing orders to their citizen soldiers already on U.S. soil to engage in more mass shootings, as well as in new types of mass murders that they view as acts of war.

With weaponized drones now the size of mosquitoes, what’s to stop ISIS from ordering 100 attacks in 100 cities simultaneously? And what if those tiny drones carried lethal payloads of anthrax or smallpox or a powerful chemical agent?

Such an attack during the Super Bowl might make the Mandalay Massacre look like a stroll through the park.

With such new realities in mind, we not only need to support the right to carry guns for self-defense, we need to also find ways to protect ourselves, our families and communities from new waves of attacks which might require having gas masks and other protective measures.
