Our founders wisely included the Second Amendment in our Constitution because the right to keep and bear arms was one of the abiding principles for which they had waged the Revolution.
And for those of you who have forgotten your American history or for the Common Core types among you, those who failed to receive a proper education in the subject, the Minutemen fired on the Redcoats because the British were trying to confiscate the powder and arms from the Colonists.
But let there be no question: we won the American Revolution and became a great nation because of the availability of arms and our willingness to use them.
Like little David who slew the giant Philistine, Goliath, an over-matched and outgunned bunch of Colonists defeated the greatest military power on the face of the Earth.
And as a result of our victory, the ones who wanted to deny us our liberty were forcefully driven from our shores and a great nation was born.
A little over two hundred years later, the people of the United States often welcome a number of their kind back, giving many of those who despise our liberty the opportunity and platform to boldly speak out against it.
One such individual has been CNN’s Piers Morgan.
Morgan’s a despicable little man, who endlessly seeks to undermine the American system of liberty from which he’s so vastly profited.
A native of the United Kingdom, Morgan would have been right at home with the mandatory quartering of troops in the homes of the Colonists.
Moreover, his intense hatred and mindless opposition for individual gun rights would have probably led Piers to seek out a job as captor on the New York prison ships, on which the British subjected captured, patriotic American Colonists to starvation, disease, and numerous acts of brutality.
No doubt some of you will think this is an unduly harsh opinion. But for proof of my statement, you have only to look at the man’s most recent history.
Every time America experiences the tragedy of another mass shooting in a school or shopping mall, Morgan reacts with an almost-evil glee to the incident, looking upon it as another opportunity to remove guns from the hands of the innocent and law-abiding.
As a proud and liberty-loving American, I believe each one of us has the right to believe whatever he chooses; however, I don’t believe that uniquely-American sense of liberty gives anybody the freedom to advocate policies that would take away those rights from each of us.
That is the reason I think Piers Morgan should immediately be sent packing, from both the studios of CNN and from the precious shores of the United States.
I would love to see his worthless backside booted back to Britain, to once again take his place alongside the descendants of those who once inflicted other bloody massacres on the streets of Boston.
Now comes the rumors on Twitter that CNN is about to fire Piers Morgan.
Perhaps there is some hope for that network, after all.
Like President Obama, Piers Morgan places absolutely no value on our country’s Constitution, seeking to make the United States in the image of the nations in which they spent their formative years.
If men like them have their way, then peace-loving Americans will face the possibility of once-again being helpless in our own homes, the victims of a vast, powerful, and occupying force.
Piers Morgan must go.
And that time cannot come any time soon enough to suit me.
