There can be no doubt that the situation in Iran really does make all of us Americans appreciate the rights we take for granted in a functioning representative democracy. For Marco Rubio, the conservative candidate in the 2010 Florida Senate primary, that means…the right to bear arms.
Check out this post that Rubio put up on Twitter:
I have a feeling the situation in Iran would be a little different if they had a 2nd amendment like ours.
Now on the one hand, it is true that things would probably be different right now if Iranians were heavily armed. But a) this is just one of many rights they don’t have, and b) don’t American conservatives usually oppose the heavy arming of people in that part of the world?
