Ted Cruz Schools Actress Who Questions “God-Given Right to Own a Gun”

You don’t want to get into a Twitter debate with Sen. Ted Cruz, because the man will, more often than not, make you look like a simpering fool. Of course, in the case of Alyssa Milano (last seen celebrating her decision to have two abortions in the early 1990s), that’s not an overwhelming feat.

After Texas State Rep. Matt Schaefer offered up a rejection of gun-grabber mythology in the wake of the latest mass shooting in Odessa and Midland, Milano countered by asking: “Can someone cite which passage of the Bible God states it is a god-given right to own a gun? This guy is unbelievable and is clearly owned by the gun lobby.”

It would have been easy enough to dismiss Milano’s remarks as the ravings of a liberal psychopath, but Cruz decided to take his time and give the actress the respect of taking her query seriously. In doing so, he delivered a lesson in both theology and constitutional authority that should give Milano plenty to think about in the coming days.

Well, okay, probably not, but maybe it will convince others.

“An excellent Q, worth considering carefully w/o the snark of Twitter. It is of course not the right to a modern-day firearm that is God-given but rather the right to Life & the right to Liberty. Essential to that right to life is the right to DEFEND your life & your family,” Cruz explained in the first of many tweets.

“The right to self-defense is recognized repeatedly in the Bible, eg Exodus 22:2: ‘If a thief is caught breaking in at night & is struck a fatal blow, the defender is not guilty of bloodshed.’ (Note, though, verse 3 says it IS murder if during daylight (ie, not self-defense),” Cruz continued. “The Declaration of Independence acknowledges our rights thusly: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.’

“And, for that reason, the Second Amendment provides ‘the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, SHALL NOT be infringed,” he continued. “It wasn’t to protect people’s ability to hunt, or to shoot target practice, but to defend their lives, their homes & their families. Stephen Willeford exercised that fundamental right when he risked his own life to stop the Sutherland Springs murderer, saving countless others as a result.”

After several subsequent tweets, which delved further and further into the history of American self defense and the laws surrounding it, Cruz lowered the boom with his closing remarks.

“Playing politics w/ these deranged crimes—and trying to use them as an excuse to violate the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens—won’t make anybody safer. Forcible gun confiscation (as some 2020 Dems urge) won’t prevent mass-murders. But it would weaken our self-defense,” he finished.

Milano, for her part, apparently had nothing else to say about it.
