Colion Noir Nails It: The "Right to Feel Safe" Isn't a Right At All...
There's always so much confusion about what's a right, and what's something you think you have the right to but don't because being a brat doesn't entitle you to things. Sorry liberals. General rule, if it's something you want but don't already have, it's probably not a right. Cars, houses, that hot supermodel, being able to eat whatever you want and not get fat, being free from "judgement" all of those things? Yeah, they're not rights.
Neither is "the right to feel safe." But this guy, Colion Noir, he says it best.
People who are against guns have the right to feel safe? Are you kidding me? That's disgustingly self-entitled. It's ridiculous to think you have the right to feel safe. Should we kill all the scary dogs because they make you feel "less safe"?
We love his jab at Joe Biden, who suggested women blast two shots into the air out of a double barrel to "scare away a robber." Second in line to the presidency. Talk about "not feeling safe."
Noir is right. You do not have a right to a feeling, not even happiness. You have the right to pursue it, but not to be it. Words mean things. Got it? There are plenty of things you can do, a lot of decisions you can make based on how you feel about something, but when it comes to self-protection, when it comes to politics and someone else's genuine rights (to protect yourself in this case, hello Second Amendment) your feelings have zero place in any kind of debate. Use that awareness ribbon to tie up your feelings and get them out of my face.
We should debate the issues based on logic and evidence, in which case Project Exile would be a part of every gun control conversation, yet far too many people feel their way through the issues, and their big bleeding hearts make a giant mess of stupid all over everything. And calls for "gun control" are evidence of that.
