Ted Cruz Shuts Down Hollywood Actress During Twitter Gun Control Debate
These flakey left-wing Hollywood actresses think they are so smart but, if they were as smart as they claim to be, they should have known not to mess with Ted Cruz.
Sunday evening actress turned left-wing activist Alyssa Milano wanted to know where in the bible it says we have the right to bear arms.
Milano posted on twitter:
Can someone cite which passage of the Bible God states it is a god-given right to own a gun? This guy is unbelievable and is clearly owned by the gun lobby. #NoRA

The Senator responded…
An excellent Q, worth considering carefully w/o the snark of Twitter. It is of course not the right to a modern-day firearm that is God-give but rather the right to Life & the right to Liberty. Essential to that right to life is the right to DEFEND your life & your family. 1/x https://t.co/8pjstMGrGB

Senator Cruz then gave a 10 point twitter sermon that a theological and constitutional law professor would be proud of:
Stephen Willeford exercised that fundamental right when he risked his own life to stop the Sutherland Springs murderer, saving countless others as a result. St. George Tucker, one of the most important scholars in early America, explained the reasons behind the Second Amendment as follows: “This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. The right of self defence is the first law of nature….”…in most govts it has been the study of rulers to confine this right w/in the narrowest limits possible. Wherever…the right…to keep & bear arms is, under any…pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction. That’s also why, post Civil War, disarming Black Americans was a critical objective of the KKK, and was memorialized in countless Jim Crow laws—to strip African-Americans of their God-given right to self-defense from violence.
“Playing politics w/ these deranged crimes—and trying to use them as an excuse to violate the constl rights of law-abiding citizens—won’t make anybody safer,” Cruz closed. “Forcible gun confiscation (as some 2020 Dems urge) won’t prevent mass-murders. But it would weaken our self-defense.”
Well, look who is #1. pic.twitter.com/3y6q7zEl5n

Cruz hasn’t responded to the invite but after that twitter sermon, I don’t think he needs to. Milano can use all the left-wing talking points she would like, she can’t hold a candle to Cruz.
