Kurt Hofmann: Josh Horwitz laughably accuses gun rights advocates of disregarding Constitution

The latest from the "government monopoly of violence advocates.
Ah, yes--CSGV's old "only the government can protect you from . . . the government" argument. Horwitz dismisses concerns about the need to be able to resist a government's genocidal ambitions by claiming that the U.S. is a "democracy" (no--it isn't), and democratic governments don't murder their people.
According to Horwitz, in order to have "faith" in the Constitution, one must believe that a power hungry government can be thwarted in its desires to usurp the power of the people, simply because words on parchment say that it must not. That is, obviously, a ludicrous notion. The Constitution itself protects nothing, unless it is enforced.

Ain't gonna bother reading horowitz 'article'.
He is fundamentally WRONG at the outset - numerous courts have continuously ruled that the 'government' and its agents - ie police etc have NO obligation to protect individual citizens - their 'duty' is to the community as a whole. Start with a faulty premise and your conclusions will also be faulty.

Once again, Mike, thanks for the link.

Looks as if I've gotten myself on CSGV's shit list (a place I'm proud to spend my days) yet again.

The comments are priceless.
