John Rocker, an outspoken former relief pitcher for the Atlanta Braves, has made his feelings on any potential gun control laws very clear:
The southpaw is against them, explaining why in a column for World Net Daily.
"Mr. Obama wants to severely neuter the Second Amendment and disarm the law-abiding citizens of this nation, a similar act of tyrants throughout the 20th century such as Stalin, Mao and Hitler," Rocker writes.
"Absolute certainties are a rare thing in this life, but one I think can be collectively agreed upon is the undeniable fact that the Holocaust would have never taken place had the Jewish citizenry of Hitler's Germany had the right to bear arms and defended themselves with those arms."
Rocker then tells the story of the Atlanta woman who shot an intruder and saved her five children, concluding with a message to Piers Morgan and others that wish to put new laws in place:
"So to that sanctimonious Piers Morgan and those determined to disarm Americans - and yes, any form of gun control is only the initial first step toward total gun control - I say read the story coming from the suburbs of Atlanta and, if possible, allow the notion of why the Second Amendment is so important to the safety of Americans to circulate through your closed minds."
What do you think of Rocker's comments?
