Sarah Palin Defends the 2nd Amendment at the NRA’s ‘Stand and Fight Rally’ … “But If You Control Arms, You Control the People and That is What They’re Trying.’
Former Alaska Governor and GOP Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin reminded the folks at the NRA’s ‘Stand and Fight Rally’ what “They’re” trying to do. Palin went on to say, “Let us learn from out Founders … remember back in the day the colonists stood in line to register their muskets. Me either, because they didn’t”. Palin also went on to hammer the Obama administration and Democrats their lack of understanding of terrorism by saying, “THEY don’t know what is right. Not when that evil Muslim terrorist Maj. Hasan massacres his fellow US military soldiers at Fort Hood. His Allahu Akbar praising jihad … THEY call that workplace violence. What calling that Devil a disgruntled employee and THEY call us the terrorists?”
Maybe one of her best lines of the night was when she mocked VP Biden when he told women before an assault fire a warning shot in the air. Palin said, “that may be fine if your rapist is a bird.” But then came the money line … “Gals you know that now a days ammo is expensive, don’t wast a bullet on a warming shot.”
Palin was a speaker at the group’s ‘Stand and Fight Rally,’ held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
The Republican former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee’s remarks followed her criticism of of policies she said were coddling to ‘enemies that would annihilate America – they who’d obviously have information on plots to say, carry out jihad.
Palin also criticized an ‘intellectual elite in a far-distant capital’ that she said wanted Americans to abandon Revolutionary War ideals.
She also implied that the government is trying to control the people.
‘Look, if you control oil, you control an economy,’ she said. ‘If you control money, you control commerce. But if you control arms, you control the people and that is what they’re trying.’
Elsewhere in her speech, she called the idea of gun-free zones as ‘stupid on steroids’ and dismissed the idea of gun stores being linked to crime.
