The Blaze has posted an interview they did with Kevin Tully.
On Monday, TheBlaze brought you the story of an unnamed veteran who stood up and gave a rousing defense of the First and Second Amendments during a Chicago-area forum on gun control.
“The problem with this country right now is, ‘it’s us and it’s f***ing them,’” he declared soon after watching a slideshow equating gun owners with Nazis. “We need to stop this crap.”
And while he was extremely respectful in asking how the professor on the panel would react if hisFirst Amendment rights were in the crosshairs, when the professor reiterated that the Second Amendment should be re-examined for relevancy, the vet retorted: “The threat of tyranny is no less than at the turn of the century in 1900, in 1800, or in 1700.”
But after Professor Goodman simply repeated that the Second Amendment may no longer be “relevant,” Tully reacted:
“Having no concept that– tyranny doesn’t exist, or the threat of tyranny doesn’t exist, or the worddoesn’t even exist– you’re living in a utopian society…He had no grasp of the concept of why the Second Amendment is in the Constitution at all. It’s not to go hunting, it’s not to own a firearm, it’s to give the people the power to keep tyranny at bay.
[Tyranny is] not a wolf that dies. It’s a wolf that breeds, and it may not always be in your backyard, but it’s always looming on the horizon. It’s always looming on the horizon, and that’s why the Founding Fathers wrote it the way they did. And the guy had no grasp that without the Second Amendment, they would soon come after his First Amendment rights.”
When asked where he sees the latest push for gun control going, Tully freely admits that he’s not a “history professor,” but he’s taken it upon himself to study history.
