God Given Right To Bear Arms

Our media does like to point at American gun laws and give a sneer of condescension, a 'what are they like' type thing so that's why whenever some gun nut shows up we like to slip it in as a funny bit at the end of the bulletin so this morning there was a man in a cowboy hat and dungarees babbling something about Cleveland, Ohio and how they are being stopped taking guns into a gun free zone.
'We are being denied our God-given rights to carry handguns or assault weapons in public,' mumbled the gentleman doing more than a passing resemblance of Lennie from 'Of Mice and Men'.
The piece ended with the usual grin of 'Americans and their guns, what are they like' type expression before moving onto the weather and Storm Katie that is due to blow down everybodies fence tonight.
Intrigued how the rights to be stupid carry a gun is 'God Given', i googled it and found that far from being a chapter in the Bible that only Americans seem to have, it stems from the American Constitution which gives the 'right to self-defence' which is a natural right which is bestowed upon everyone by God, therefore the right can be said to be God Given as they have chosen automatic weapons to defend themselves. 
Some may say it is another example of religion making the loopy even loopier but even worse it is making the loopy even more loopier but arming them with powerful assault weapons and what would us Europeans we do to fill the final minutes of news programmes if they weren't because Donald Trump latest crackpot musings aren't going to be around forever.

Really I don't understand how you get to be so patient and polite.

Good point Lucy.

Sammy, she choose to be. Plus the left always point history. I'm just pointing out the parts the like to ignore.

Further sambo, my gun rights in the USA really are not her business. Or yours.

It's patronizing Samuel, like when you pat a child on the head for weeing in their potty.

It is also condenscending and arrogant - traits of the left. The left is always shocked to advocate diversity then find out that there are actually other viewpoints.
