Giffords’ Veterans Tour a Chance to Challenge Participants on Their Oaths
“Veterans are uniquely qualified to address America’s gun violence epidemic—we’re crossing the country to show why,” the re-branded Americans for Responsible Solutions now calling itself Giffords announced.
Why they’re uniquely qualified is left unsaid.
“About 80 percent of the jobs in the military are non-combat occupations,” Military.com reports. And there’s a reason why the Constitution requires the military to be subordinate to civilian authority.
But you wouldn’t know that the way Gungrabby Gabby and husband Mark Kelly have latched onto the military as the arbiters of allowed civilian firepower. Kind of like in the old days, before April 19, 1775, when the military would unquestioningly follow orders to seize arms.
For “progressives,” every day is Opposite Day.
This Veterans Tour is a continuation of another effort. We’ve seen in the past how Giffords teamed with retired standing army brass like David Petraeus and Stanley McChrystal to try and subvert the Second Amendment and neuter the militia.
Just because someone served, or in their cases, enjoyed rewarding careers where they have made even more lucrative connections, doesn’t mean they either understood their oath or meant it when they swore to it. The Veterans Coalition elites clearly would issue orders to disarm the American people, and it looks like the Veterans Tour opportunists would gladly carry those orders out.
That makes it fair for veterans who believe unyieldingly in the right of the people to keep and bear arms to attend the “community-led conversations” at any of the seven stops identified in the above graphic and demand unequivocal answers to some questions, about their oaths, about founding intent and about “shall not be infringed.”
If you do go, please send us an after-action report and let us know what happened.
