And now we must turn to the issue of gun violence in America today because the latest mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut leave us all Liberal and Conservative, Republication and Democrats appalled and disgusted at the carnage.

Now some people place the blame for this horror on things like thirty round magazines or semi‐automatic rifles. We want to blame something, anything that we can control. What we really want to ban is violence and murder and insanity, but we don’t talk about that though because deep in our hearts each of us knows that violence and murder and insanity are built into human condition and likely always will be.

There are two kinds of animals in this world. Predators and prey. No one watches a leopard chase down a gazelle and denies that the gazelle has a right to use its hooves and horns to protect itself from the predator but there are people in this room tonight and all across the country who would deny that same right to self‐defense to other human beings. Such people seem to think that the way to stop the leopard is to cut the horns off the gazelle. That by somehow making it easier for the predator that the predator will simply go away. My Friends this is insane. When you make it easier for the predator you get more predators. So let’s start with the so called assault weapons more property known as semi‐automatic rifles.

In 2011, the total firearms murders came to eight thousand five hundred eighty three according to the FBI. Now during that time the total murders committed by rifles – all rifles, not just semi‐automatic rifles – were 323. That’s three percent of all murders. Hammers and clubs kill half again as many people as rifles. Hands and feet murders, twice as many and knives kill five times more Americans than all rifles combined. Preventable medical errors kill about ninety eight thousand people per year. Medical malpractice kills more than twelve times as many people as are murdered in the US each year that’s more than three hundred times the number killed by all rifles – not just so – called assault rifles. And yet, no one talks about limits on hammers or knives or doctors or hospitals. No one does that because the good we perceive from hammers and knives and doctors far out weight their perceived harm and get studies show that firearms prevent anywhere from eight hundred thousand to over two million violent crimes every year. The lowest estimate means that one hundred times more violent crimes were prevented with firearms than the total murders committed with firearms. That’s one hundred times as many.

Now in October of 2007, Amanda Collins was walking to her car after a night class at the University of Nevada at Reno. Amanda had a concealed carry permit for her 9mm Glock that she carried for self‐defense. Unfortunately for Amanda UNR is like most college campuses a gun‐free zone so, like the law abiding citizen that she is, she did not have her gun with her in this gun‐free zone when she was attacked by James Biela. Biela raped her on the UNR campus lease than three hundred yards from the campus police office. He then walked away and a few months later this human predator went on to murder nineteen year old Brianne Denison. Amanda Collins went on to say “I know, having been the first victim that Brianna Denison and would still be alive had I been able to defend myself that night.”

Therefore I am directing the virtual Attorney General to aggressively challenge any gun control laws the violate Amanda Collins’ right not to be raped and Brianne Denison’s right not to be murdered. You’re not forced to abandon your First Amendment right when you enter Chicago or New York on your Fifth Amendment rights when you walk onto a college campus. As virtual president I will veto on‐the‐spot without hesitation, but with a great deal of pleasure, any and all attempts to destroy any — of the Bill of Rights of the constitution of the United States of America. Because when it’s all said and done the Second Amendment to the Constitution is not there to protect us against criminals and the people calling for gun control know this, that’s why they want gun control instead of crime control. That’s why they want laws that at the stroke of a pen turn law‐abiding citizen into criminals.

The Second Amendment is there to protect American’s from tyranny. The Second Amendment is there to protect American’s from politicians. The Second Amendment is there to protect people from us. Some politicians call American deserve a vote on this issue. Ok! Let’s have a vote. These of you advocating infringements on the right of the people to keep and bear arms need to go to the American people with the twenty Eight Amendment which would simply read the Second Amendment to the Constitution is hereby repealed. That would for the first time give you the legal authority to do what you have been doing and what you are trying to do now in direct violation of your oath of office to defend the entire Constitution of the United State not just the parts you happen to approved of.

So go ahead. Go to American people and tell them, that ultimate powers are no longer to be vested in the people who can’t be trusted with that power according to you. Tell them only the Government can have the power now, you go out there and try to convince the people of the thirty eight states that you’re going to need to get the Amendment passed to agree with your opinion of them verses their opinion of you. I dare you!

12 million unarmed men, women and children were unable to resist being murdered by their own National Socialist Government in Germany. Perhaps 50 million unarmed men, women and children were murdered by their own Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. 50 million Chinese murdered by their own Government under Mao who also disarmed his people, and in Cuba and in Vietnam and in the killing fields of Cambodia.

Now you say that can’t happen here. You say we’re protected. By What? By the Constitution that you’re in process of destroying? You are in violation of your Oaths of Office but so much as introducing this legislation let alone passing it. My fellow Americans, the previous inhabitants of this chamber watched as one hundred million people were murdered after being disarmed by their own governments. Every single one of those men, women and children, were as real and precious and irreplaceable as the children at Newtown. And I tell you here and now that I will be dammed if I will let that happen to the American People.
