Titusville, FL – “The IRS scandal shows you can’t trust government,” gun rights expert John M. Snyder said here today.
“In this case,” he added, “officials used their authority for political purposes against certain individuals and organizations. According to reports, there are separate attempts in Washington to try to get to the bottom of the situation.
“The underlying message of the news is that government misuse of power against the people always is a possibility. The truth is that government is a potential enemy of the people.”
Snyder said that, “In order to maintain the people’s freedom, the power of government must be circumscribed, as our Founding Fathers intended. Most rational citizens probably would agree that today government in the United States is too extensive and intrusive and should be severely curtailed.”
“The people,” he said, “must be superior to government.
“People need guns to be dominant in the country. It truly is positive that 100 million Americans own 300 million rifles, shotguns and handguns. People purchase over 10 million new firearms each year.”
“The fanatic cries for more and more gun control really are nonsensical, even hysterical,” Snyder said. “Many current restrictions on firearms acquisition should be eliminated.
“As the current IRS controversy demonstrates, government restricts and undermines liberty. God, guns and guts make Americans free.”GunRightsPolicies.org
