Have you ever read something so incoherent that you simply assume that the person who wrote it must have been high out of their minds?
That’s what it felt like to read a recent article on the Huffington Post by Justin Cormi, where he attempts to assert that lawful citizens using firearms for self-defense, like, denies criminals of their constitutional rights, man.
 
The main problem with the notion of self-defense is it imposes on justice, for everyone has the right for a fair trial. Therefore, using a firearm to defend oneself is not legal because if the attacker is killed, he or she is devoid of his or her rights.
Cormi’s disjointed rant gets even more incoherent and illogical from there, but his basic premise is stunning.
He’s effectively arguing that violent criminals have more rights than their innocent victims, and that the act of defending your life using lethal force is illegal.
This is not only factually  incorrect as a legal matter, but is also at odds with thousands of years of human history, the morality of most modern and ancient cultures, and the theology of every major religion.
Put simply, Cormi couldn’t be much more wrong if he was trying to argue that “green” is a smell.

What most 21st Century Americans simply do not grasp is that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were not written to to give rights to the citizens of our then-new nation, but was instead written to tightly constrain the federal government.

I saw that Hufpo piece and didn't think it was worth the electrons that it would have taken to post it.

It was a waste of 1s and 0s for sure.  It did demonstrate; however, the distorted thinking that we face from useful idiots.

Most of the comments posted below the essay show that readers were not fooled by the author's specious and foolish argument.
