Although author Justin Curmi declares that the Second Amendment is highly contested, he also states that there is “no doubt” about citizens’ rights to keep and bear arms; it’s using them that’s the problem. In fact, he believes it is illegal. “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,” Curmi declares.
Since everyone has the right to a fair trial, Curmi argues, it must therefore be illegal to curtail an attacker’s right by using lethal violence against him to defend oneself. He seems to assume that the crafters of the Second Amendment believed that citizens should be able to keep and bear arms without intending that the weapons ever be used, which stretches the imagination to the breaking point. He also seems to assume that the violent criminal’s right to a fair trial supersedes the victim’s right to life itself, since the logical alternative to self-defense is letting oneself be killed. That's right folks Justin Curmi of Huffington Post thinks you shouldn't be allowed to defend yourself, if a violent attacker comes into your home or attacks you out in public. Sorry Justin but the second amendment shall not be infringed. Sorry but if a violent attacker want's to attack and American citizen, then said attacker has made the decision to be shot. As Americans by law we have the right to use equal force on an attacker per the American justice system. Huffington Post continues it's barbarity of being anti US Constitution, when the American news reader pays for their paycheck. Why don't these people in America who are anti gun and anti Americans defending themselves, when there are multiple nations around the world which are a paradise of no gun rights. You know why they don't leave? Because Liberals and their news sources want nothing more then the destruction of American values, and remember these are the same people who open their arms to a religion where 25 percent of the people support terror.
