Justin Curmi, a liberal blogger on Huffington Post, feels that just because we have the 2nd Amendment, that does not give any citizen the right to defend themselves with a firearm because if the criminal were to be shot, the criminal is denied a fair trial.
Curmi, who stated that he seeks to engage people in thought and conversation through presenting new views to matters, new or old, for some reason, does not understand the intent of the 2nd Amendment and the right of the people to defend themselves by any means, including the use of a firearm.
However, for Curmi, and if one reads the fine line, stated he understands that citizens do have a right to carry and as he calls states, “have a stockpile of guns” which pertains to “the right of the people to keep and bear arms”, with the state to have the right to organize a well-regulated Militia. But then says he has an issue as to why a citizen has a right to defend themselves with a firearm.
Curmi’s reasoning, as he states is this, “The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights.”
Then Curmi goes on to say, “A gun for civilians is a weapon for a revolution and not for ordinary use. The belief that a gun is a useful tool to protect one is counter-intuitive because guns get into the hands of people who use them for horrible reasons. In addition, there are reasons why cops are trained to use a firearm in stressful situations.”
Due to the liberal mindset of Curmi and other leftists, concerning firearm ownership, Brian Anderson of DownTrend stated, “Writing for The HuffPo, he presented one hell of a view concerning our right to not be murdered by a maniac killer. There are an awful lot of flaws with this argument, the first being that a violent attacker hasn’t been arrested or charged yet when they are trying to commit a terrible act. They aren’t due their day in court until they are formally charged. In addition, a person committing an unlawful act forfeits certain legal protections.”
“The Bill of Rights only limits the power of the federal government, not the people. The Constitution doesn’t lay out all of our rights, just the ones the feds can’t mess with. We have other rights besides what is in the document, and one of those is the basic human right to live, “said Anderson. “There is no clause in the 6th Amendment that says a person cannot defend himself or herself with deadly force because it interferes with a criminal’s right to a fair trial.”
“The only thing I can conclude here is that The Huffington Post paid Justin Curmi with psychedelic mushrooms and gave him a big advance for his writing. This isn’t even normal gun-grabber ignorance and misrepresentation of fact. This is balls-out/tin-foil hat insanity. The only thing thought provoking about his argument is; why isn’t he in an institution where he can get the help he needs?, “Anderson stated.
