The body of a 17 month old child isn’t even cold and another elected official has stood up to defend the gun nuts of Texas in a number of tweets. He claims god have Texans the right to own guns. The only thing god gave was the right for someone to call Schaefer a dick. Gun rights were given by man and man alone. God had absolutely nothing to do with this. Nothing. As was said in the past:
Newflash for you buds, God didn’t give you that right. So quick saying it. As you probably know the right to own a gun comes from the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution, written by a group of men. So what man giveth, man can surely taketh away. So quit your g—damn whining about how you have a god given right to own a gun. It’s about as intelligent as saying you have a god given right to own a chicken. (But not in the city limits)
Schaefer continued saying NO to background checks, or banning assault weapons, or red flag laws. Schaefer wants Texas to remain to be the wild, wild, west with guns on demand. He wants more guns in schools and more guns on the streets, even though if it costs the life of police officers, your family members, or a 17 month old child.
He bows to guns and not to god.
Remember when you used to claim to be Catholic? It's a shame you've given that up.
Catholics who think god gave us gun rights pretty much missed the point about their religion. They suck just as much as the evangelists.
Well, first of all, this post was somewhat hard to follow, both because of typos, and also because of the mixed references to god and God. The creators of the English language designated capital G God to be the God of the Bible, with the lower case g being all others. It is what it is. To be grammatically correct, if we want to reference, even to denigrate, the Christian deity, we should be using a capital G. Having said that, Christians, including America's founding fathers, believe that ALL rights come from God. We refer to those as natural rights. We have them because we exist. The right to self defense is something we think of as a natural, God given right. Firearms ownership is a practical way for people to defend themselves, and as such, we consider that a natural right, a right we have just because we exist….a God given right.
Goddamn! That is one really stupid comment. Jesus H Christ! WTF is wrong with you?
