    Newt Says the Right to Guns is God's Gift to World

    “The right to bear arms comes from our creator, not our government,” Gingrich said. The NRA “has been too timid” in promoting its agenda beyond American borders. The Bill of Rights was not written only for Americans, he said. “It is a universal document.”

    “A Gingrich presidency will submit to the UN a treaty that extends the right to bear arms as a human right to every person on the planet.” Every world citizen, he said, “deserves the right to defend themselves from those who exploit, imprison, or kill them.” For his latest big idea, Gingrich earned a standing ovation from the crowd of roughly 5,000.

    “We don’t need to go across the planet trying to impose American values, but we do need to go across the planet spreading human values,” Gingrich said. “The Second Amendment is a right for all mankind.”

    And yet... the rest of the world pretty much disagrees...

    And seriously?  The right to be free of quartering soldiers is from God?

    How about Prohibition: The Lord giveth and taketh (or taketh and giveth)?

    The Constitution is a manmade document.  No one can read the mind of God.  But the needs of the people can be ascertained by rational discourse and democratic vote.

    Your problem with this is???

    I mean, other than it stands in the way of the liberal world view that the elites determine our rights.

    In Response to Re: Newt Says the Right to Guns is God's Gift to World : Well said by a nanny-state liberal. Let's not put anything above government and the process of governing. People do not have inherent rights, they are granted to them by the likes of Reubenhop and all well-meaning liberals.

    Spoken like the unthinking ideologue that you are.  Sure.  God gave us the right to carry machine guns and bazookas and government is standing in the way of God's plan.  And the rest of the civilized world did not get God's message!  And God gave us Prohibition and then changed his mind a few years later.  Sure.  That all makes sense.

    It's nonsense.  The thought that the American politicians that wrote the Bill of Rights were channeling God's plan for the world, a plan that therefore cannot be changed, is nonsense.  Indeed, it is supremely arrogant nonsense as virtually all other civilized nations do not recognize this right.  An inherent, God-given human right to carry an AK47.  Sure.  It's in the Bible somewhere...

    Are you saying that I don't have a right to defend myself, outside of any "right" to do so granted by government (or the elite)?

    For his next Newt will declare that the right to bear arms extends to the moon and the moon bases he will build if he becomes president.

    In Response to Re: Newt Says the Right to Guns is God's Gift to World : Guns, and the violence they bring are a 'God given right'? God's a warmonger, who knew? Geepers, you wingnuts are nuttier than pecan tree.
    Posted by airborne-rgr


    They apparently will defend anything, and I mean anything, spewed by one of the wingnut leaders.

    Yes, God gave us guns and it is God's grand vision that we will spread the glory guns around the world. 

     I'm so glad I haven't backed myself into a corner that requires I defend that statement.

    It may be that Newt is talking about our right to defend ourselves and uses the gun law as an analogy.

    Guns do not kill people!! A gun is an inanimate object!

    To buy a gun, a person should have to go thru the same wingnut process as a person getting an abortion.  They should have to wait 48 hours after applying. View on ultrasound of a body with a bullet in it. Listen to the heartbeat of someone as they die of a gunshot wound. Get a lecture from a surgeon on what it is like to operate on a gunshot wound. After all that, if a person still wants a gun, he or she is free to buy one.

    Newt's not the issue, guns aren't the issue.  The apparent unwillingness of the left to recognize our right to defend ourselves is the issue.

    I guess that would possibly deter the miniscule percentage of gun purchasers who intend to use it on a human being! da

    In Response to Re: Newt Says the Right to Guns is God's Gift to World:
    It would seem that one snivelling turd or another reported my post in which I called Gingrich a f**king moron, for the second time. Therefore, I reiterate that Gingrich is a f**king moron. I also reiterate that whoever really feels the need to report posts is probably pretty close to the type of person no one would mind watching get run over by a bus. In fact, I might rather enjoy the slow-motion replay. I thought truther was as low as you can go, but anonymous tw(i)ts can be relentless about this sort of thing.... That said: First, guns are a gift from China . Second, if guns are a gift from God, why are not nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons? Is Gingrich taking the position that Bush launched a War On Jesus in 2003? How dare we take God's gifts from Iraq!?!? If they had any, that is...

    I like that on one thread you say "Guns do not kill people!! A gun is an inanimate object!"  and on another thread you tout the innocence of George Zimmerman.

    If George Zimmerman didn't have a gun would Trayvon Martin have been killed?

    Seriously, you make this too easy.
