There was a not only a heated discussion, but sadly there was a request by a council member to silence citizens clapping during public comment as a "point of order". Earlier, he includes in his rebuttal to the request for a resolution regarding the 2nd Amendment by stating:
"You guys are absolutely crazy" The discussion begins at time stamp 56:11, the quoted comment at 58:25:
Another sad day in America. Never ends, the quest to whittle away the 2nd amendment, and then asking the council chairman to silence the crowd during the community public forum: [time stamp: 1:10:00] or to counter "personal attacks" [1:23:00]
God, why is America so afraid of freedom and its expression?? And moreso, why are publicly elected officials to represent us wish to silence a crowd? Is it too unordered?
Thank you, Mr. Batte, council chair for allowing the folks to speak out, because in my estimation, the crowd was churning, but sometimes it was a direct response to comments by council members.
And for those charged with protecting the weakest in our society, I offer the following testimony to rebut Mr. Kiester's question:
"How many bullets does it take to kill 22 children?" Answer: Whatever it takes a mother to defend her children in an attack while on the phone to 911 requesting aid.
Folks, I know this is heated but the 2nd Amendment was to protect you against overwhelming power, including the most overwhelming, tyrannical power.
Those that experience the direct hand of tyrannical power. Mr. Victor Rios provides a perspective of those who experienced it firsthand [time stamp: 1:01:00]
Its not about guns, its about your right to protect yourself with overwhelming power. And if you believe the government can protect you, then by all means we should eliminate the 2nd Amendment and create gun-free zones.
The Newtown school tragedy occurred in a gun-free zone,vand there was no overwhelming power to counter a citizen with the intent to kill in a school.
Its about overwhelming power, and if we continue down the path of removing guns from society we shall be victims of overwhelming power from those with criminal intent since laws are meaningless to them.
