Rebuttal to Wisconsin Letter on MLK and Gun Control

Quoting Dr. Martin Luther King in honor of his officially recognized birthday, Sandra Saul writes that every person is a child of God. Point of fact and point of order, we are all God's creatures. To be a child of God is a matter of faith, one of spiritual adoption. Even Dr. King should have known this. Dr King advanced welcome attention to civil rights, but the same President, who supported King openly, Lyndon Baines Johnson, also expanded the welfare state.

President Johnson is on record saying the following:

"I'll have those n--ggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years."

The liberal agenda, including “gun control”, has done more harm than good for communities in the United States. Johnson's "Great Society" was a nightmare for African-Americans. King’s “I have a dream” speech was not based on quotas or reverse discrimination, or even more gun control. African-Americans supported the NRA in order to defend themselves from the KKK. On the other hand, the modern welfare state broke down the black family, and today a greater number of African-Americans are questioning the values and influence of the Democratic Party.

Saul claims that she wants "to live peace and not just dream about it". Peace is more than just a speech, a sermon, or a sentiment. Peace is based on the rule of law, individual liberty, and enforcement of contract and order. Ignoring the faults of human nature will not promote peace, and taking away the guns will not stop the violence.
