This is crazy.
As MSNBC was watching the collapse of Venezuela over the weekend, they made a particularly interesting observation.
MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders told his colleague Andrea Mitchell that Venezuela’s socialist government had the upper hand on the people because of one reason, in particular.
“You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country.”
Yep. He admitted that because there was no 2nd Amendment, the people had no ability to defend themselves or their freedom.
MSNBC reporter Kerry Sanders unwittingly made the American case for the Second Amendment during a report Tuesday on the political upheaval in Venezuela.
Anchor Andrea Mitchell introduced Sanders for his report by commenting on the surprising ability of Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro to stay in power, despite the pressure on him to step down.
“Not only hanging on but he appears to still control the military,” Sanders said. “You have to understand, in Venezuela gun ownership is not something that’s open to everybody. So if the military have the guns, they have the power and as long as Nicolás Maduro controls the military, he controls the country.”

MSNBC didn’t even notice that they had just made a coherent argument for defending the 2nd Amendment on their own network.
Hopefully, the American people never “need” the 2nd Amendment, but it’s better to have our guns and not need them than to need them and not have them.
