I have never been a Karl Rove fan, even when he was on Dubya’s election campaign. He’s always impressed me as being a weasel. My opinion was confirmed, not this week, but this week it was obvious to all who watched or read his latest interview on FOX News; Karl Rove is not, and has never been, a conservative nor a republican. He’s a liberal mole whose purpose is to disrupt any efforts for conservatives to be elected.
Karl Rove claims to a be a great election and political adviser. Truth be told, he’s never won an election for any client. His advice has been consistently leftward and has insured his clients lose their elections. In short, he’s a fraud.
His latest exposé was his statement that the 2nd Amendment was the cause of all the gun violence. He implied, although some reports say he didn’t actually say it, that the 2nd Amendment should be abolished.

But Rove’s statement didn’t go unobserved. The American Thinker had this article this morning.

Guns don’t kill people, the Constitution kills people, at least according to Karl Rove, Republican strategist and architect of George W. Bush’s election and reelection as president. Rove, speaking on Fox News Sunday, and in the wake of the South Carolina church massacre, embraced the liberal mantra that there are too many guns on the street and went a step further and a step too far, saying the way to avoid more such tragedies is to repeal the Second Amendment and its guarantee of our right to keep and bear arms:Now maybe there’s some magic law that will keep us from having more of these. I mean basically the only way to guarantee that we will dramatically reduce acts of violence involving guns is to basically remove guns from society, and until somebody gets enough “oomph” to repeal the Second Amendment, that’s not going to happen.
Say what? Rove displays an ignorance of our history and our Constitution and how we won our freedoms thanks to private citizens bearing arms. The Second Amendment, it has been said, was written to protect the other nine in the Bill of Rights, and was an acknowledgement of the threat from tyrants and other domestic enemies such as the criminals and the crazies that would otherwise roam unchallenged among us. As Thomas Jefferson said in a letter to James Madison, dated December 20, 1787:
“What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”In addition to the threat posed by tyrannical governments, Thomas Jefferson was among the first to embrace the concept that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun:
“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
The article continues at the website. It states that all of the mass shootings going back years and perhaps decades, have one thing in common—they all occurred in gun-free-zones—a fact that Rove and leftists ignore. That fact doesn’t support their agenda to disarm America. They know that can’t seize power in the country if each person is armed.
