Ted Cruz TORCHES This Hollywood Star

Here’s what he said…

Far-left activist Alyssa Milano inquired whether self-defense was a God-given right, and she promptly received a first-class education from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on the subject.

“Can someone cite which passage of the Bible God states it is a god-given right to own a gun?” Milano tweeted. “This guy is unbelievable and is clearly owned by the gun lobby. #NoRA”

Cruz responded: “An excellent Q, worth considering carefully w/o the snark of Twitter. It is of course not the right to a modern-day firearm that is God-give[n] but rather the right to Life & the right to Liberty. Essential to that right to life is the right to DEFEND your life & your family.”

“The right to self-defense is recognized repeatedly in the Bible, eg Exodus 22:2: ‘If a thief is caught breaking in at night & is struck a fatal blow, the defender is not guilty of bloodshed.’ (Note, though, verse 3 says it IS murder if during daylight (ie, not self-defense),” Cruz continued. “The Declaration of Independence acknowledges our rights thusly: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.'”

“And, for that reason, the Second Amendment provides ‘the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, SHALL NOT be infringed.’ It wasn’t to protect people’s ability to hunt, or to shoot target practice, but to defend their lives, their homes & their families,” Cruz continued. “Stephen Willeford exercised that fundamental right when he risked his own life to stop the Sutherland Springs murderer, saving countless others as a result.”

“St. George Tucker, one of the most important scholars in early America, explained the reasons behind the Second Amendment as follows: ‘This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature….,'” Cruz continued. “‘…in most govts it has been the study of rulers to confine this right w/in the narrowest limits possible. Wherever…the right…to keep & bear arms is, under any…pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.'”

“That’s also why, post Civil War, disarming Black Americans was a critical objective of the KKK, and was memorialized in countless Jim Crow laws—to strip African-Americans of their God-given right to self-defense from violence,” Cruz continued. “I’m a Texan. What happened in Midland-Odessa—and El Paso, Santa Fe & Sutherland Springs—was sick, deranged & horrifying. We need to do MUCH more to stop violent criminals & those w/ dangerous mental illness BEFORE they murder & I’m leading the fight in the Senate to do so.”

Cruz concluded: “Playing politics w/ these deranged crimes—and trying to use them as an excuse to violate the constl rights of law-abiding citizens—won’t make anybody safer. Forcible gun confiscation (as some 2020 Dems urge) won’t prevent mass-murders. But it would weaken our self-defense.”

  1. Thank you Senator Cruz for your reasonable approach to guns. Please, as in the latest, Midland-Odessa, the man should not have been in possession of a gun. He was a criminal. Enforce the dang laws that are already on the books and leave my guns alone. Additionally, Alyssa Milano is a moron.

    1. I’m always amazed that the people calling for gun control (RIGHT!) also say Trump is a fascist. Police are killers. They will have us have no defense against said tyranny. They also have no problem with post birth abortions! Isn’t that using a weapon (scalpel) to kill some one? IRONIC???

  2. Despite the anti-gun uproar about “assault rifles,” knives, hammers and even hands and feet are used to murder more people, according to FBI Crime Stats. Over the past year, AR-15 rifles, and their owners, have been attacked from many sides. Some have deemed “assault rifles” as things to be eliminated and destroyed. However, FBI crime stats show that knives, clubs and hammers killed more people in 2017 than rifles of any kind. In fact, according to the 2017 Uniformed Crime Report, knives were used four times more than rifles in murders. Additionally, all types of rifles are included in the report—bolt-action, pump-action, single shot and semi-autos. This means that only a percentage of the 403 murders committed with rifles were performed with “assault rifles.” Even when combining shotguns with rifles, knives still killed more than double the number of people. More so, blunt objects, such as hammers and clubs, killed 64 more people than rifles, with 467 murders. Even hands and feet killed more people than rifles, with 692 murder victims being beaten or kicked to death. Of course, 2017 could be a fluke, but that is not the case. In 2016, murderers used knives more than four times more than rifles. This rate is even higher in 2015, with 1,544 murders committed with knives and only 269 murders committed with rifles.

  3. I wonder if he had said yes he could cite the passage in the bible if she would have bought it, as I would bet she has never red the bible. People that read the Good Book are not mean and ugly toward others like she is.

  4. The reason this country has not been attacked, other than 9/11, is because so many have guns. The guns the people that are going out and doing these mass murders have been bought illegally or are stolen.
