GRANT STINCHFIELD (HOST): So the goons over at liberal Media Matters website pushed an idea to reporters that I am out of line when I tell you it is no coincidence that the United States has not been invaded by any foreign nation because we have so many gun owners in this country. Their headline reads this, "NRATV host credits gun owners with preventing an invasion of the United States." Their aim is to mock, but you better believe that headline is true. Widespread gun ownership can be looked at as one reason why no foreign nation wants to storm our beaches. Yet even in the wake of our history, going back to our founding, Media Matters pushed the idea that somehow this theory is so out of line, just wacky. When in fact if they studied the Constitution, they would know a well armed militia is all of us. Each individual, collectively, given the right to keep and bear arms so we can stand up to tyranny, foreign invaders and any evildoer that may come calling.
STINCHFIELD: So what is so disappointing about the left, and yes Media Matters, is that they can’t fathom the need for firearms to stand up to tyranny or a foreign invader. To them, the idea is simply humorous. But I am here to tell you, it is no joke. We, all of us as a nation are ultimately responsible for our own safety and security. The personal arsenal of every American combined is larger than that of the United States military. That is a good thing. It is an added layer of protection against all evil, wherever it may come.
