Ted Cruz Schools Alyssa Milano Over God Given Gun Rights-Bible Connection
On Sunday, Milano responded to Republican Texas state Rep. Matt Schaefer's tweet that he was "NOT going to use the evil acts of a handful of people to diminish the God-given rights of my fellow Texans. Period. None of these so-called gun-control solutions will work to stop a person with evil intent" following a shooting rampage in Odessa that killed seven and injured at least 22.
Enter Ted Cruz, There is nothing more exciting than watching an intelligent, well-informed person completely dismantle the argument of someone who is not debating in good faith. Texas Senator Ted Cruz does that more than almost any other elected official, and it never gets old.
2/x The right to self-defense is recognized repeatedly in the Bible, eg Exodus 22:2: “If a thief is caught breaking in at night & is struck a fatal blow, the defender is not guilty of bloodshed.” (Note, though, verse 3 says it IS murder if during daylight (ie, not self-defense).— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) September 1, 2019
4/x And, for that reason, the Second Amendment provides “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, SHALL NOT be infringed.” It wasn’t to protect people’s ability to hunt, or to shoot target practice, but to defend their lives, their homes & their families.— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) September 2, 2019
6/x 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....”— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) September 2, 2019
8/x 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.— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) September 2, 2019
Milano’s response? Offering to debate Cruz on gun control and calling his eloquent, Constitutionally-grounded answer “bulls**t.”
10/x 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. Forcible gun confiscation (as some 2020 Dems urge) won’t prevent mass-murders. But it would weaken our self-defense.

I’d love to come in and meet with you on the gun issue and many other issues that include life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, @tedcruz and also, 1 Peter 4:8.— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) September 2, 2019
I’ll be in DC next week. We can live-stream the meeting so the American people can hear your bullshit 1st hand. https://t.co/S3ljfjjOtG
1 Peter 4:8 New International Version (NIV) 8
I’d be happy to sit down & visit next week about uniting to stop gun violence & about the Constitution. If we can have a civil & positive conversation—in the spirit of 1 Peter 4:8 as you suggest—despite our political differences, that might help resolve the discord in our Nation. https://t.co/YfkB97wAA0— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) September 3, 2019
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.
Interesting to see that her hypocrisy knows no bounds. Should we expect anything less out of a washed up actress who had 2 abortions to land a starring role in the TV series Charmed?
Can someone cite which passage of the Bible God states it is a god-given right to murder unborn children? This gal is unbelievable.
