• Rep. Chris Collins: Alexandria Attack a Reminder Americans Must be Armed for Self-Defense



    By AWR Hawkins

    Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) was not at the Congressional baseball practice when a committed leftist attacked, but watching the toll paid by colleagues who were there reminded him that Americans must be armed for self-defense.

    Collins did not seek to diminish the bravery and sacrifice of the police who were present at the baseball field nor those who responded after reports of shots fired. But he did seek to remind Americans that self-defense is a personal responsibility.

    Writing in the Chicago Tribune, Collins said:

    When I hear concerns from loved ones, friends and constituents fearing for our safety, my instinct isnít just to rely on law enforcement. Capitol Police officers were heroes last week ó their bravery and quick thinking probably saved the lives of [Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA)] and my other colleagues ó but self-defense is my responsibility, too.

      We have to stop saying "good guy with a gun", it's used by snarky antis anytime there is an accident, police abuse of power, or domestic violence involving guns to conclude that there is no such thing as a "good guy with a gun", on a person with a gun, and that is never good.

      LOL. NOBODY wants to take responsibility for their own shit these days. They want the govt to feed, clothe, protect and satisfy them. All this one "someone else's" nickle.
