Gun Controllers Now Rewriting Their OWN History

Gun Controllers have long tried to rewrite American history, demonizing the “wild west” as some dime store novel when people are getting shot all the time.  In fact since everyone had guns often times the townspeople would defend their town where a Marshall or Sheriff wasn’t available.

Gun controllers try to scrub the 2nd Amendment not only from the Bill of Rights but also from the pages of history, trying to make people buy into the lie that the Founding Fathers were not talking about the people when the enumerated the right to keep and bear arms.  Nothing could be farther from the truth because even in reading the 2nd Amendment in the twisted way the progressives prefer, the man who WROTE the 2nd Amendment said this about it:

“I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.” -George Mason

And just for added measure I will toss in this gem by Samuel Adams:

“And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the Press, or the rights of Conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms”

So, with so much distortion of national history it will probably come as no surprise that gun controllers themselves are trying to rewrite their own history.

In this instance I am talking about Colin Goddard, gun control advocate, who recently gave Forbes Magazine an interview.  Apparently either Forbes Magazine is complicit in the rewrite of Mr. Goddard’s personal history or they just don’t give a damn in regards to fact checking anything that he had to say.

Goddard tries to come across as an regular joe who was impacted by the Virginia Tech shooting but after Sandy Hook decided “shucks, I just have to do something about this.”

Here’s his narrative about the events as they took place:

Yet he didn’t immediately join the the gun safety movement. It wasn’t until the Sandy Hook shooting in Newtown, Mass., when he watched the victims on TV the same way the rest of the nation watched his tragedy at Virginia Tech, that something changed for Goddard. He has come to refer to this shift as his ‘Newtown moment.’

“I think the fact that it was an elementary school shook this country to its core,” he told Forbes. “People said, ‘Something has to change.’”

The following day, Goddard packed his bags and moved to Washington DC.

Ok….except that is all a load of BS.

You see, with a lazy reporter in the time before the internet, Goddard could get away with this deception but after a few minutes googling him here’s the truth of the matter.

Colin Goddard was employed by the DC-based gun confiscation group, the Brady Campaign, YEARS before Sandy Hook happened.  According to his LinkedIn page, Goddard was the Assistant Director of Federal Legislation for the group from 2010 until 2013.  If you recall, the Sandy Hook shooting happened in 2012, 2 years AFTER Goddard began working for the Brady Campaign.  I could appreciate it if it happened around the same time, maybe a few months after he began working there and the time just blended together.  I could give him a pass for that.  But this is like a soldier joining the army in 1999 and saying he did it because of 9/11.

Not only is it just a bald face lie, it is an exploitation of tragedy in order to make Goddard seem like he wasn’t a rights shredding gun control radical before he was emotionally moved by the Sandy Hook shooting.  Its actually rather disgusting but exploiting tragedy and the death of children has been the gun control movements modus operandi for as long as they have been around.

I don’t know if reporter in this instance, Alexandra Wilson, is lazy, ignorant or on the take from the gun control lobby to just print whatever they say but it literally took me a minute to look up Goddards LinkedIn page.  She couldn’t spare a minute to check out a story?

We cannot let the gun control radicals change or rewrite history, be it that of the 2nd Amendment or their own personal history’s to make themselves seem more noble.  These people want to strip us of our God given rights and they will stop at nothing to do so.  Their is no limit to their depravity, no depth they will not sink to and no lie they will not propagate in order to achieve their tyrannical goals.

The truth is their greatest enemy and we must continue to use it against them.
