CHINA: 2ND AMENDMENT VIOLATES HUMAN RIGHTS: Irony So Thick, You Can Shoot Holes Thru It
When someone in the midst of an American political debate goes so far as to label an individual on the Left a communist, the recourse from the Left tends to be a collective scoff—an implication that the label is so far fetched, it damages the accuser’s credibility.
Then, China, the world’s current and longstanding flag bearer of communism, publishes a bizarre report making a case for one of the American Left’s foremost agenda items—gun control.
Larry Pratt is the executive director of the Gun Owners of America (GOA), and he is available for interviews to address this Twilight-Zone international incident that has China accusing the U.S. of human rights violations, starting with the 2nd Amendment.
“The United States prioritizes the right to keep and bear arms over the protection of citizens’ lives and personal security and exercises lax firearm possession control, causing rampant gun ownership,” says China’s human rights critique of America.
Where does one even begin with a statement like that? …Here’s a suggestion. Start by calling Special Guests to book Larry Pratt on your show.
In addition to breaking down the Chinese report, and its mad-spin-doctor attempt to link state gun control with the protection of human rights, Pratt can also outline how closely China’s perspective disturbingly aligns with American Leftist politicians—including those in the Obama administration currently holding serve on U.S. executive power.
