Before Ted Cruz served as Senator for Texas, he held a smattering of legal positions as a lawyer, including Solicitor General of Texas. Which had him arguing before the Supreme Court. I mention his curriculum vitae to set up the following interview, wherein Joe Scarborough, who wrote a song for the Women’s March, tried to argue guns and the Second Amendment with Ted Cruz.
Firstly, guns are designed to harm. Cars are designed to drive. Computers designed to compute. Feminists designed to annoy. Guns fire projectiles with the aim of doing harm. Otherwise, they’re glorified paperweights. One keeps and/or carries a weapon like a gun to protect him or herself from others who seek to do them harm. Example: a pretty woman walking down the street, the kind you’d like to meet. She’s informally accosted by Harvey Weinstein. If not Harvey, one of Harvey’s acolytes. Who, rather than bothering with the traditional methods of courtship, skips right to rape.
The pretty woman draws a Walther PPQ and pops a cap in his gelatinous ass. If her gun fired hugs rather than bullets, what’s the likelihood she’d make it home with her dignity intact? Even if she did have an Oscar?
So this idea of “But, but, this gun is MEANER!!!! than all the other guns” is asinine.
