“We can either live in a paranoid politically correct world frantically trying not to offend the Hitlers and Mohammeds, and blaming their victims when they kill, or we can be free men and women who have chosen to take the power to defend our rights into our own hands.
While a thousand organizations use the Holocaust as a platform for speeches about tolerance, Children Of Jewish Holocaust Survivors [Jews Can Shoot] is conducting firearms training… Freedom is not defended with empty idealism easily perverted into appeasement of evil, but with the force of arms.”
All too many of the other great tragedies of history - Stalin's atrocities, the killing fields of Cambodia, the Holocaust, to name but a few - were perpetrated by armed troops against unarmed populations. Many could well have been avoided mitigated, had the perpetrators known their intended victims were equipped with a rifle and twenty bullets apiece... If a few hundred Jewish fighter in the Warsaw Ghetto could hold off the Wehrmacht for almost a month with only a handful weapons, six million Jews armed with rifles could not so easily have been herded into cattle cars.

Habah l'hargecha hashkem l'hargo -- "If someone is coming to kill you, rise against him and kill him first."
The original context of the interview was initially about fatherhood, and Nelly’s experiences in raising his children.But when Nelly began explaining how he felt about his daughter dating, he said “All boys are scum!” He states, “Little boys around my daughter; I’M A PROUD MEMBER OF THE NRA!” He then reiterated,“PROUD MEMBER!”Obviously nobody really knows exactly how “pro-gun” Nelly really is or isn’t. But when he exclaims that he’s a “proud member,” despite not being a huge hip hop fan personally, I’m nearly motivated to buy his latest CD.It’s refreshing to see celebrities finally coming out of the closet to realize, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun!”~ Wayne LaPierre
