“Self-defense is not an option.”
Mar 1, 2013
In video captured by CBS Atlanta, an avid Obama supporter states that she would rather die than exercise her Second Amendment rights to defend her own life with a gun.
The footage was shot during a protest against “stand your ground” gun laws at the Georgia state capital in Atlanta. The rally was timed to coincide with the anniversary of the day George Zimmerman was attacked by Trayvon Martin in FL.
The protester, decked out in Obama gear, bizarrely declared that “self-defense is not an option.”
“It’s not an option,” she repeated, admitting she would rather be a victim than be armed.
When the CBS reporter asked What if someone is trying to kill you?” the woman replied, “they’ll just have to kill me.”
Presumably the woman would also see everyone else be victims rather than having the right to defend themselves against murderers trying to kill them.
Other protesters at the rally took slightly more rational positions, with one noting that gun control only affects law-abiding gun owners, not criminals.
“I think that people should have the right to defend themselves. It’s our Second Amendment right and any sort of legislation on guns or any sort of gun control, all it’s doing is hurting the victims.” the protester said.
The Trayvon Martin case quickly became a cause célèbre for talking heads who tried to hijack the murky details of the incident to play the race card, immediately jumping to the conclusion that Martin was a victim of racially-inspired violence – including Barack Obama himself who infamously stated, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon.”
Photos of a bloodied George Zimmerman emerged recently that may bolster claims that he was acting in self defense when the shooting occurred. The case is ongoing.
