Why does anyone need an AR-15?

WND:  Have you noticed how gun-control advocates are asking all the wrong questions in their desperation to disarm American citizens?

This is one you will hear frequently from non-Americans like Piers Morgan of CNN. He recently asked it of Ted Nugent. (What a mistake that was!)

The question goes something like this: “Why does anyone need an AR-15?”

Now I can tell you lots of reasons why people need AR-15s. I may not absolutely need one. But I’d sure like to have one – maybe more than one.

But there really are people throughout the world and throughout the United States who have needed them.

Let me make this simple for the Piers Morgans of the world. Let’s say you are the victim of a home invasion. It happens every day in America, by the way. A group of armed thugs decide to select your home for an attack. Their plan is to ransack the house looking for money, jewelry, artwork, drugs, whatever. The gang has no compunction about killing you and other members of your family if you become an obstacle to their plan.

You find yourself outmanned, but, if you have an AR-15, you might not find yourself outgunned.

It’s just that simple. Why is this difficult for people like Piers Morgan to understand? I understand why Barack Obama and other would-be government tyrants want to disarm the citizenry. That’s about establishing a monopoly on force. Governments throughout the world have been doing it since the beginning of time.

Genocides have been perpetrated around the world only when the citizenry is disarmed. It’s not even possible to commit such monstrous acts among a well-armed populace.

But there’s more to this question than meets the eye.

Look at the question again – this time with emphasis on the key word: “Why does anyone need an AR-15?”

The keyword is “need.”

This is the word that betrays the motivations of the non-government advocates of gun confiscation.

What do they have in common? At the foundation, they are socialists. They don’t really believe in private property. They believe in Karl Marx’s philosophy: “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.” That was a slogan Marx popularized in 1875. Today, 138 years later, it still resonates in the hearts and minds of people all over the world – many of them unaware of its origin.

Notice the word “need” in that statement.

Socialists believe the entire society should be oriented to meeting people’s “needs,” with the government determining what those “needs” are.

Think about it this way: How would you like it if the government asked you the following questions:

  • “Do you really need that spare bedroom?”
  • “Do you really need that Big Gulp?”
  • “Do you really need that Big Mac?”
  • “Do you really need that expensive cigar?”
  • “Do you really need that second car?

Of course, as you know, governments are already asking some of these questions.

What it comes down to for them is this: If you don’t need it, you don’t get it.

You will notice they never ask some other questions about “need.”

One obvious one is: “Do you really need that abortion?”

They won’t ask that question because killing unborn babies is the sacrament of the new socialist religion. Actually, there’s nothing really new about it. Evil societies have been sacrificing children for thousands of years. In America, they are sacrificed to the false god of “choice.”

“Choice” is actually a wonderful thing in a free society. But “choice” has been hijacked by evil people as a euphemism for doing what seems convenient, expedient, taking the easy way out, shirking responsibility.

Socialists aren’t for choice. They are for determining what you can have based on “need.”

That’s why I’m pro-choice on guns and pro-life on abortion.

Besides, remember the words of Thomas Jefferson “The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
