Having lived through the 1989 massacre of protesters in Tiananmen Square.
“To me, a rifle is not for sporting or hunting. It is an instrument of freedom.
It guarantees that I cannot be coerced, that I have free will, that I am a free man.
Now suppose, the 20 milllion Beijing citizens had a couple million rifles on hand in 1989? How many rounds should they have been allowed to load into their magazines? Ten rounds? Seven rounds? How about three rounds?
Do not give up the fight, my friends. It may be a small step that you give up your rifle, or a 30 round magazine.
But it will be a giant leap toward the destruction of this republic."
Just imagine if this guy had an assault rifle with armor-piercing rounds.
And this is what happens to peaceful protesters for freedom when the government has a monopoly on force.
And lest you say it can't happen here, let me remind you of the past in this country.
And let's not forget that every one of these incidents of violence against peaceful protesters was initiated at the direction of a Democrat public official -- a member of the same Democrat Party that today wants to impose limits upon your right to keep and bear arms.
