The last time I checked, our rights were bestowed upon us at birth by god and confirmed by our constitution. They are not subject the whims of a faceless unelected bureaucrat to exploit at his pleasure.

Jeh Johnson, Department of Homeland Security Secretary, stated on Tuesday that passing gun control law is now “part and parcel of homeland security” during an interview on the CBS This Morning show. Johnson brazenly stated that recent events have indicated that new gun laws need to be passed to prevent homegrown terrorists from obtaining firearms. Johnson argues that there are “ways to get at meaningful, responsible gun control” while critics argue he is leading us towards a nation of defenseless targets and is using a national tragedy as a catalyst.

Johnson made these anti-gun statements for the first time in his career following the Orlando Terror attack that left 49 people dead. He argues that homegrown terrorists like Omar Mateen, the Orlando shooter that purchased the weapons used in the attack through legal channels, need to be restricted from purchasing firearms. When the left-leaning host of the show, Gayle King, asked Johnson what it would take to “move the needle when it comes to control” he responded by saying:

“You’re asking me about gun control. I am not anxious to plunge into yet another difficult, contentious issue like the ones I already have, I do believe, however, that meaningful, responsible gun control is now part and parcel of Homeland Security. It’s critical to public safety, but we have to face the fact that meaningful, responsible gun control has to be part of homeland security as well, given the prospect of homegrown, home-born violent extremism in this country.”
