Clearly Nathan Rubin believes that if something is written into law by a politician, then whoever practices civil disobedience against such a law is an "irresponsible criminal".
Those in the past like Rosa Parks who have challenged unfair laws, in Rubin's mind, is a lawless deviant.
There are countless revolutionaries who, through civil disobedience, have brought about immense progress. Conforming mindlessly to every pedestrian, ill-conceived, corrupt law pulled out of a politicians ass? Not so much progress.
This is only part of why Rubin's comment is so cringe-inducing...
The real reality is that any politician who attempts to write laws in order to confiscate guns is actually the irresponsible criminal, not those who resist it, since they're intentionally ignoring the Constitution.
The people have a responsibility to actively frustrate immoral and tyrannical laws. The limitations we've put on our government are, on the other hand, created precisely to prevent tyrannical and immoral laws from being considered in the first place.
Yes, there is an entire system in place to make sure idiots like Beto O'rourke can't just take innocent people's guns away on a whim.
Those who resist gun confiscation are always the patriots, the politicians who demand it are always the traitors.
They're literally asking our military, who swore an oath to protect the Constitution, to dishonor themselves by breaking their oath and then going to war against the very people the Constitution is supposed to defend.
Disarming peaceful individuals is always an act of aggression.
Ironic to Rubin's comment, you simply cannot be a law abiding citizen by agreeing to go along with tyranny.
It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from its government.
So yeah, if you're going to threaten to confiscate our guns, then COME AND TAKE IT.
-Law abiding citizens.

More guns is not the solution. Hard to believe this site exists.
Actually, you would be a RESPONSIBLE criminal, not an irresponsible criminal. That grants the false premise the law is valid. As the Constitution is the FUNDAMENTAL law of the United States, any ‘law’ that directly violates the Constitution IS NOT LAW, regardless of what any portion of the government claims.
Wholeheartedly agree with you. The purpose of the Second Amendment is so Citizens can be a check and balance against a tyrannical Government. You need bite with the bark or the Government will do as it pleases.
The Monticello Website confirms Thomas Jefferson had “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.” on one of his personal seals for correspondence, nearly a personal motto. It also indicates the saying was so popular among the Founders (possibly proposed by Benjamin Franklin) they considered it for the official motto of the newborn United States.
Libertarians are not know for their Theology (on the other hand Jefferson and Franklin were known as Free Thinkers) but if anything could be said to be the Theology of the Revolution, this would be it.
Once you posit that “All men are created equal and endowed with unalienable [individual] rights, “Rebellion to Tyrants is obedience to God” is where what Theologian Francis Schaefer termed “the logical outcomes of your presuppositions” leads you.
Once the Founders and their contemporaries rejected “the Divine Right of Kings” they all became Theistic Libertarians (in a manner of speaking) by default. Walter Williams has been saying it for a quarter century in “Parting Company.” You are either an Individual Rights-ist, or a Proto-Tyrant Commissar wannabe, intrinsic “irreconcilable differences.” Kipling summed it up a century earlier and pithily, as was his inimitable won’t: “NO TRUCE WITH KINGS!”
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness
U.S. Constitution is the Supreme Law of the Land, I’ll Abide by the 2nd Amendment, any law that is against the Constitution is Tyranny!
Yes, he is an idiot. The relationship question is who is the t-shirt model? Seriously!
Essentially autocrats like Rubin think a simple majority of the House of Rep- 236, plus what increasingly is a simple majority of the Senate- 51, and 5 Supreme court judges, i.e. 292 people, have the right to dictate to 330,000,000 people. They think that because they think they’re smarter & wiser than us. The country however was established as a Republic, reserving power to the states where there’s accountability, for a reason. Rule by simple majorities creates bloody revolts.
