Why Are Guns Important To A Free People? Ted Cruz Has The Answer

Ted Cruz is rocking the boat now more than ever, and I LOVE it. (Also, have you seen the Cruz street art in San Francisco? It’s freaking awesome. I want to buy a crapton of the posters and tape them all over my neighbor’s cars, quite frankly.)

Anyway, Ted Cruz participated in a 10-question interview with John Harwood, and he did a great job calling out the “new species of yellow journalism,” or as you may know them, PolitiFact. They’re really into fact checking jokes these days. (Then again, PolitiFact also launched an in depth investigation on the price of Scott Walker’s sweater, so that tells you what we’re dealing with here.)

Anyway, Cruz was asked about our Second Amendment rights, and Breitbart News followed up with another question:

Why are guns important for a free people?
"America was founded on a revolutionary concept," Cruz said. "Namely, that our rights don’t come from government, they come from God Almighty. The natural rights of man include life, liberty, and property. Each of those rights is dependent upon being able to preserve the safety and security of your own family. In fact, the very first Congress not only acted to protect our Second Amendment rights but mandated the militia act; that adult free men must own a musket."
