On last Sunday’s show, during the 2nd Amendment update, I told you about the plans by the minor-league Huntsville Stars to celebrate Independence Day with more than just fireworks. They were planning to raffle off some firearms. We praised them for using the occasion of our country’s birthday to celebrate one of our most precious freedoms, the right to keep and bear arms. Now the event has been cancelled! From Mr. Conservative:
A minor league baseball team in Alabama, the Huntsville Stars, planned a “Second Amendment Night.” At the event, three weapons were going to be raffled off. Due to national criticism, however, the team cancelled the event.
The Southern League and Minor League Baseball headquarters told the Huntsville Stars to cancel the event, which was set to happen on Wednesday.
Director of Media Relations Nicole Collins said, “Minor League Baseball advised us that it would be best if we didn’t hold the promotion. We’re just trying to protect the game.”
Seriously? And we’re just trying to protect the Constitution.
I don’t know who represents the district in which this stadium is located in Congress, but I think it is incumbent on that member of Congress to denounce this PC bullying attempt to marginalize and demonize the 2nd Amendment. If we don’t stand up to the liberty-hating Left, we’re going to wake up one day and wonder what happened to our freedom.
