If our government were to take away a citizen’s means of self-defense, how should he or she be empowered? Who is running who? At what point would an all-powerful government be stopped if its citizens have no means of doing so. More locally, how can they protect themselves of criminals?
Recently, John Tkazyik, the mayor from Poughkeepsie, NY, publically declared his leave from the organization known as Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAIG) upon discovering the group’s true intentions.
“It did not take long to realize that MAIG’s agenda was much more than ridding felons of illegal guns,” Tkazyik said. “Under the guise of helping mayors facing a crime and drug epidemic, MAIG intended to promote confiscation of guns from law-abiding citizens.”
Tkazyik continued by saying the depriving the law-abiding citizens their right to own firearms only makes them more vulnerable. He finished by stating what he has always believed in.
“I don’t believe, never have believed, and never will believe that public safety is enhanced by encroaching on our right to bear arms, and I will not be a part of any organization that does,” Tkazyik said.
If Tkazyik’s statement does not show you the seriousness of gun confiscation advocates in power, one of the group’s very own and Austin, TX council member, Mike Martinez, made a direct statement to a pro gun advocate holding a “Stop Gun Ban” sign at a rally.
“Someone needs to inform him (protestor) that there is no gun ban currently, but because of the work we’re doing today, we will make [his] sign legitimate shortly,” Martinez said. “So you hang on to that [sign].”
