Aaron Weiss speaks to the motion to repeal the ‘Safe’ act at the Dutchess County Legislature NY state. March 11, 2013.
This is one of the best 2nd Amendment speeches of 2013 that you may have missed.
“Another issue is the insistence of certain people to stand on the graves of dead children and challenge those that disagree to say it to the parents faces. Well, I, for one, will pick up that gauntlet. First off, why is “dead children” your battle cry? You didn’t say anything about the hundreds of Chicago children being killed and for some reason you only screamed when it happens to wealthy white ones. And yes, I’ll say to anyone’s face my right is more important than your dead, because I fought for it first hand. I washed the blood of my friends out of my humvee and I picked up their mangled bodies and I fought day in and day out. I did more things than people can imagine. So, yeah, my right trumps your dead.
I earned it in blood. I gave up a lot for this country including my youth and better men than me gave up a whole lot more so that all of you, myself included, can enjoy the rights that are guaranteed to us in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. We didn’t go through all of that to come back home and watch you surrender what we fought for happen based on the demented acts of a couple of mad men.”
