Henson Ong: Legal Immigrant's eloquent 2A defense

I don't believe I've ever heard as eloquent defense of the Second Amendment as this legal immigrants' at a CT hearing on restricting weapons.

I saw that, and had some coworkers watch it.

We need more Americans like him.

It warms warms the heart to hear that our newest legal citizens understand our laws. Too bad many of our natural citizens don't fall into the category.

In fact, they take an oath to defend the Constitution, and that includes bearing arms. Naturalized citizens have a more acute understanding of our laws and principles than the vast majority of folks who yawned through it in high school.

Which is why schools should be privatized, and I am a firm advocate of legal immigration.

Some of us took a similar oath at a young(er) age.
I for one don't recall being relieved from following that oath.

CowTowner, I hope all who took that oath remember it. There was/is no expiration date!
