In his quest to get AR-15 rifles out of Americans’ hands, Hollywood liberal George Takei seemed to inadvertently make a point in support of the Second Amendment.On Monday, the Star Trek actor tweeted that all the AR-15s in America could be put to better use in Ukraine, where they are trying to fight off the tyranny of the Russian invaders.Takei wrote, “Crazy thought, but those 20 million AR-15s now in this country could sure arm a lot of Ukrainians.”It appeared that the liberal actor failed to realize what his tweet implied, that AR-15s can be useful in protecting the citizenry of a sovereign nation. That is one of the main reasons why America’s founding fathers instituted the Second Amendment. THE VIEW CO-HOST JOY BEHAR: GUN LAWS WILL CHANGE ‘ONCE BLACK PEOPLE GET GUNS IN THIS COUNTRY’Second Amendment supporters on Twitter were quick to remind Takei of this crucial point he completely overlooked.

Wouldn’t that be awesome?!!! They should be armed and never give up their arms again, just in case. In fact, better still, make it a right.  I think I have the words… ‘the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.’ Just in case. You know…”
