9-year-old competitive shooter schools NJ officials over proposed gun control bill
By LU Staff on March 15, 2014 at 11:39 am 


From the mouths of babes. Meet Shyanne Roberts, a 9-year-old competitive shooter who was permitted to speak before the New Jersey Law and Public Safety Committee in Trenton, N.J., on Thursday to air her views on to a proposed bill that would further limit magazine capacity to 10 rounds. As Jason Howerton of the Blaze notes, her comments — presented in a no-nonsense manner as only a child can — were met with thunderous applause from the audience

“I am not a ‘gang banger or domestic terrorist,” she told the committee, adding. “This bill, if it becomes law, will severely impact me and a million other gun owners.”

The 4th-grade honor roll student continued:


I have worked and trained very hard to get to the level I am at and if A2006 becomes law, I will be forced to choose between giving up on a very great and promising future in a sport that I love or asking my dad to move to another state. I will not be giving up my sport.

Everyone is upset about bad people doing bad things to others, but punishing the people who didn’t do anything wrong is not the way to stop bad people. If it wasn’t against the law, I would’ve brought one of my competition guns with me today to show you it won’t do anything unless someone touches it.

I ask you please keep the promise you made when you were elected by protecting people’s rights and vote no on A2006.

An video of her comments follows.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

"And a child shall lead them."

Encouraging. Smart, too. For too long the left has owned the phrase "Do it for the children." Bout time one of those children called them on it.

Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
