By now, most Second Amendment supports are familiar with Mark Robinson, a North Carolina man who became an internet sensation by speaking at a city council meeting in support of gun rights. The pro-gun speech he gave in April 2018 at a Greensboro, N.C., City Council meeting went viral, not just for Robinson’s intensity, but his factual statements. It was an incredible speech for responsible gun owners everywhere.
“You can’t withhold my right to own a firearm because somebody else committed a felony with a firearm,” Robinson said. “It’s not right. And like I said, it’s a lazy and unconstitutional way to enforce the law. So when I said [to the council and the audience] that we are the majority, that’s what I meant. We are the majority. The majority of people are law-abiding citizens, work hard every day, and their rights should be preserved.”
“My message would be, do not be afraid,” he said, adding:
Do not be afraid to stand up and live and fight. And when I say fight, I don’t mean with your fist, it has not come to that. But, do not be afraid to stand up and make your voice heard, no matter what anybody says to you, as long as you stand up for courage and the truth. Do not be afraid, because the people who got us to where we are certainly weren’t.
Since then he has continued to stand for the 2nd amendment, serving on the national outreach board for the NRA.
