To me, although Alex has injudiciously made himself look like a raving moron, his point about democide, government tyranny, the reason for the 2nd
amendment, are all sound. That's the issue. Liberals who oppose gun ownership, even of something like a semi-automatic, have a naive understanding of
how history has generally progressed. Socialism and banning guns work hand in hand. When unpopular legislation is passed, when government seeks to
impose undemocratic changes which the electorate refuses, it becomes tyrannical. Now imagine the government knows it has an electorate thats armed to
the teeth: the thought of creating civil war would frighten them from pursuing draconian or undemocratic legislation. Guns are the protector of the
1st amendment, which is why it immediately follows the 1st.
Also, what really needs to be addressed is violent video games and mental health. The avoidance of this issue is absurd given it's the mentality
which causes the crime, not the weapon.
One more point on Alex's tone. His offhand approach is for pandering to his base of supporters. However, as most people can tell, it's highly rude,
indecorous, and pushes away any undecided person to the other camp.
Alex thinks he's smarter than he is. Although I mostly concur with his views on the importance of the second amendment, his jumping from one topic to
another - antidepressants (which many people need, but he apparently is too coloured by his political views to understand) to 9/11 to false flags etc,
is so counterproductive and actually embarrassing for most people to watch.
Despite his reliance on facts, he did a disservice to those advocating the importance of the 2nd amendment. His mocking of Piers accent at the end
(although humorous) was also unwise, as it underwrites the already popular belief that Americans are arrogant bullies.
