Restoring America Project Super PAC is standing with Samuel Wurzelbacher, “Joe the Plumber”.
One of Joe’s recent campaign ads has come under fire. In it, he’s shown taking target practice, while talking to voters about certain historical events. One of those events is Nazi Germany’s seizure of its citizens’ firearms.
Ken Crow (Co-Founder, Restoring America Project) commented on the controversy surrounding the ad. ” I don’t understand why anyone would be upset about it. What Joe stated about Germany and other countries is correct. Every time a government has taken away its citizens’ right to defend themselves, things have turned out badly.
“Personally, I don’t like the idea of citizens being unarmed while criminals walk around with guns. For example, look at Australia. In 1997, it spent around $500,000,000.00 of taxpayer money destroying most of the population’s firearms. And what was the result? In the first year alone armed robberies skyrocketed 45%, while homicides rose 3.2% and assaults went up nearly 9%. The most appalling statistic, though, is a 300% rise in gun homicides. In our own country, since Texas passed Conceal and Carry laws, crime rates there have steadily dropped.”
Crow continued, ” Of course, no one can really knows if more guns in the hands of citizens could have prevented the Holocaust. But logic dictates that if they had been armed, things might have been different. And I want to be clear about one thing: Joe wasn’t trying to in any way diminish the tragic events of the Holocaust with his ad. His opponent, and her allies on the left, know this. ”
Crow quipped, ” I suppose if Big Brother wants our firearms, we could just call up Attorney General Eric Holder. Bet he knows some folks who can run a few over for us .”
