Opposing Gun Control Is ‘Anti-American’

“I’m the master.”

Connecticut State Police Spokesman Lt. Paul Vance not only thinks that his state’s draconian gun laws passed in the aftermath of Sandy Hook are good laws, but he also questioned one woman’s patriotism for opposing them. She wanted to know that, “if it comes down to it, will the police go to my home” to seize a formerly legal firearm “made illegal by a corrupt legislature?” The two argued over the meaning of force and threat, which led Vance to respond, “Ma'am, it sounds like you’re anti-American, it sounds like you’re anti-law.” Worse yet, when she said, “You’re the servant, we’re the master,” he replied, “I’m the master, ma'am. I’m the master.” There you have it. Our overlords have spoken, and if you believe in something so quaint as the Constitution and Rule of Law then you’re “anti-American.”
