The bumper sticker I am pissed off about was on a Black Chevy Silverado pickup purchased at Sierra Blanca Motors in Ruidoso,NM parked at the Roswell Convention Center where RMAC was hosting the chalk art festival this particular weekend.
The sticker, just beneath an Alaska Moose or Elk sticker, reads “NRA Stand and Fight”. Judging from the two bullet holes above the Sierra Blanca Motors logo, the owner of this truck is quite willing to fight for his right to bear arms as most National Rifle Association members are.
Let us suppose that the owner of the black pickup vehemently supports private ownership of “machine gun type weapons” and believes the second amendment was penned to support that quite unnecessary possession of deadly force.
Then I am completely sure said individual would also support the following specious “argument” penned by William A. Levinson:
“It is not effective to argue that the Second Amendment allows ownership of any weapon whatsoever, even though this might have been the intention of the Founding Fathers. Our opponents(People who want rapid fire automatic weapons banned) argue that the Founding Fathers were talking about single-shot muskets, and we counter correctly that muskets were the colonial counterpart of the M-16; every army on earth used them.”
Levinson’s logic, at first, appears unassailable but dodges the irrefutable claim that any law that makes it more difficult for psychos to kill a lot of people is incontestably a GOOD LAW!
I am sure that the American Thinker columnist would counter with more of his pseudo logic in an attempt to refute said claim.
