Victim of Shooting Explains The Meaning of the 2nd Amendment

  

Suzanna Gratia Hupp and her parents were having lunch at the Luby’s Cafeteria in Killeen in 1991 when the Luby’s massacre commenced. The gunman shot 50 people and killed 23, including Hupp’s parents. Hupp later expressed regret about deciding to remove her gun from her purse and lock it in her car lest she risk possibly running afoul of the state’s concealed weapons laws; during the shootings, she reached for her weapon but then remembered that it was “a hundred feet away in my car.” Her father, Al Gratia, tried to rush the gunman and was shot in the chest. As the gunman reloaded, Hupp escaped through a broken window and believed that her mother, Ursula Gratia, was behind her. Actually however, her mother went to her mortally-wounded husband’s aid and was then shot in the head.

This video is Hupp’s classic testimony before Congress which is once again relevant to America’s political debate in the light of the 2012 Connecticut shooting and Obama’s anti-gun policies.

    It’s about gun C.O.N.T.R.O.L.

    Defenseless people rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century
    because of gun control: 56 million.

        In his novel “Shogun” set in early 17th century Japan, James Clavell (a Brit born in Australia and finally a naturalized US citizen) makes the point about 2nd Amendment rights. The only persons permitted to carry swords in Japan during the feudal period were the Samurai because the Emperor and the ruling warlords feared peasant insurrection.

          Yes John we do know who the commies/ socialists are. They are easily identifiable by their inane comments, lack of common sense and hatred of this country. They are the people who proclaim that they are concerned about the poor, while voting to keep them that way. They are the people who love to give away money, as long as it is someone else’s. They are the people who have made millions of dollars off the free enterprise system and then trash it claiming that it is evil. They are the people who realize that the first order of business for communism to advance is to disarm the citizens. Ironically however they can’t seem to grasp the idea that communism/ socialism is a complete failure wherever it is tried. By all means maybe you should give it a try there are still a few countries that refuse to admit it. I hear that North Korea and Cuba are accepting applications for citizenship.

          • Barbaree

            Perfect answer! You really nailed it, Sam!

          • FLBuck

            And to include that the difference between under a communist regime and a Constitutional free republic is that in a communist infrastructure, the people serve the will of the government while in a republic infrastructure, the government serves the will of the people. As for as I can tell the government infrastructure is starting to less than a republic due to excessive government overreach as well as massive regulation that hinders the opportunity for economic growth. Also, in a republic key industrial enterprises are in the possession of private owners and investors, whereas in a communist infrstructure, the key industrial enterprises are owned by the government.

        • unwillingvictime

          Your ignorance is showing. How about Kennesaw GA for an argument? When they spoke about making sure their community was safe by arming people, the anti gun morons such as you said it would be like the wild west and there would be constant gunfights. Well guess what, they passed an ordinance that ALL households will own, maintain, and have ammunition for a firearm. Those who are felons or one in the house and those who oppose firearms for religious reasons were exempt. This was in the 80’s. They have a low violent crime rate and average about 1/2 a murder per year. There was never any gunfights as those Chicken Little people said would happen. They were also named as one of the top ten communities in the US to move to. Of course this was by that strong pro gun magazine Family Circle. If you want another argument, how is the fact that the metropolitan areas with the strictest gun control have the highest violent crime rates and is rising work for you? Of course those same anti gun idiots said when gun sales go up, crime will skyrocket. Well the last nine or ten years gun sales have been setting all out records and gun stores are having trouble keeping any in stock. So by the anti gun opinion, violent crime should be off the charts. WRONG! In fact (from the FBI) violent crime has been steadily dropping, except those metropolitan areas with the strictest gun control laws.I won’t mention the fact that all those attacks were in no gun zones. Now kindly go defecate in your fedora!

          Right now these “nasty, little toys” is about the only deterrent between this corrupt administration and its citizens, protecting our Constitutional rights.

          One definition of “deterrent” – An ability to defend a country or retaliate strongly enough to deter an enemy from attacking.” In this case, the enemy is within our own country. If our own military turns against the Constitution and our millions of legally armed, responsible citizens, or if they bring in U.N. troops to accomplish that purpose, then they ARE the “enemy.”

          Oh, we know who the Communists are & one of them goes by the name of John. Let us know when the Liberal fog clears & you can see the 2nd Amendment.

        • WellNowDear

          Yes, we know what a communist is and America has steadily moving toward communism. The 10 PLANKS stated in the Communist Manifesto and some of their American counterparts are…

          1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.
          Americans do these with actions such as the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution (1868), and various zoning, school & property taxes. Also the Bureau of Land Management (Zoning laws are the first step to government property ownership)

          2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
          Americans know this as misapplication of the 16th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, 1913, The Social Security Act of 1936.; Joint House Resolution 192 of 1933; and various State “income” taxes. We call it “paying your fair share”.

          3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
          Americans call it Federal & State estate Tax (1916); or reformed Probate Laws, and limited inheritance via arbitrary inheritance tax statutes.

          4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
          Americans call it government seizures, tax liens, Public “law” 99-570 (1986); Executive order 11490, sections 1205, 2002 which gives private land to the Department of Urban Development; the imprisonment of “terrorists” and those who speak out or write against the “government” (1997 Crime/Terrorist Bill); or the IRS confiscation of property without due process. Asset forfeiture laws are used by DEA, IRS, ATF etc…).

          5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
          Americans call it the Federal Reserve which is a privately-owned credit/debt system allowed by the Federal Reserve act of 1913. All local banks are members of the Fed system, and are regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) another privately-owned corporation. The Federal Reserve Banks issue Fiat Paper Money and practice economically destructive fractional reserve banking.

          6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.
          Americans call it the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and Department of Transportation (DOT) mandated through the ICC act of 1887, the Commissions Act of 1934, The Interstate Commerce Commission established in 1938, The Federal Aviation Administration, Federal Communications Commission, and Executive orders 11490, 10999, as well as State mandated driver’s licenses and Department of Transportation regulations.

          7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
          Americans call it corporate capacity, The Desert Entry Act and The Department of Agriculture… Thus read “controlled or subsidized” rather than “owned”… This is easily seen in these as well as the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of Interior, the Environmental Protection Agency, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, Bureau of Mines, National Park Service, and the IRS control of business through corporate regulations.

          8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
          Americans call it Minimum Wage and slave labor like dealing with our Most Favored Nation trade partner; i.e. Communist China. We see it in practice via the Social Security Administration and The Department of Labor. The National debt and inflation caused by the communal bank has caused the need for a two “income” family. Woman in the workplace since the 1920’s, the 19th amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, assorted Socialist Unions, affirmative action, the Federal Public Works Program and of course Executive order 11000.

          9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.
          Americans call it the Planning Reorganization act of 1949 , zoning (Title 17 1910-1990) and Super Corporate Farms, as well as Executive orders 11647, 11731 (ten regions) and Public “law” 89-136. These provide for forced relocations and forced sterilization programs, like in China.

          10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children’s factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.
          Americans are being taxed to support what we call ‘public’ schools, but are actually “government force-tax-funded schools ” Even private schools are government regulated. The purpose is to train the young to work for the communal debt system. We also call it the Department of Education, the NEA and Outcome Based “Education” . These are used so that all children can be indoctrinated and inculcated with the government propaganda, like “majority rules”, and “pay your fair share”. WHERE are the words “fair share” in the Constitution, Bill of Rights or the Internal Revenue Code (Title 26)?? NO WHERE is “fair share” even suggested !! The philosophical concept of “fair share” comes from the Communist maxim, “From each according to their ability, to each according to their need! This concept is pure socialism. … America was made the greatest society by its private initiative WORK ETHIC … Teaching ourselves and others how to “fish” to be self sufficient and produce plenty of EXTRA commodities to if so desired could be shared with others who might be “needy”… Americans have always voluntarily been the MOST generous and charitable society on the planet.

With Prohibitions, a “Black-Market soon follows — Illegal Guns and their Illegal-Clips will be everywhere! Not-to-mention, “The Internet” where there’s ample “free” instructions on how th convert single-fire guns to automatic, and make your own clips & silencers now! In other words — this latest ploy by so-called Democrats is just another “Power/Money-Grab on our 2nd amendment rights to “Bear Arms. Remember “Tyranny?” It’s what you’ve got when “Good & Decent, Law-Abiding” folks can no longer shoot back. Rules & Regulations never stop “Outlaws,” not ever! Posted “Gun Free Zone” signs would have stopped this most recent Connecticut killer if this were untrue. Just the thought that you may be armed is a deterrent to an attack.

What part do these idiots not understand?

    • Sol_of_Texas

      Harold — if we are to be drowned by laws, your proposition for a law prohibiting bodyguards for public officials only seems “fair” and equal treatement. Of course, this is when we discover “some animals are more equal than others”.

  • bobmann101

    I still have not heard ONE person tell the public how gun control will stop mass murder or bring crime rate down. Never has..never will!!!

    A weapon, arm, or armament is a tool or instrument used in order to inflict damage, harm or death to enemies or other living beings, structures, or systems. Weapons are used to increase the efficacy and efficiency of activities such as hunting, crime, law enforcement, and warfare. In a broader context, weapons may be construed to include anything used to gain a strategic, material or mental advantage over an adversary. Any instrument/object when used to cause bodily harm is an assault weapon. Water, sound, electricity can be also used as a weapon to assault.

    There were weapons, murders and killings long before there were guns.

    A person could take 3 guns that hold only six rounds each and take out up to 18 people. How does banning assault weapon stop people from killing? It DOESN”T!!! All it does is cause a person to come up with another plan

    Do people really think that banning what will be determined as assault weapons would have stopped the killers from accomplishing their task or obtaining a gun on the black market? Banning assault weapons will make the price go up on the black market.

    When they advertise a drug on TV they have to mention the side effects. There are some we are warned in rare cases can cause a person to have suicidal thoughts. How do we know these people who get suicidal thoughts decide to take a bunch of people with them. Look how many killed themselves after their killing spree. So we blame the gun not the medication. Why not ban drugs that alter a person thought patterns. I think every US citizen should have a gun and law enforcement classes to teach people how to use them.

    If the every teacher at the school had a gun and knew how to use there would have been less people killed, because someone could have taken him out.

    If assault weapons were were banned it would not have stopped him. Maybe slowed him down. A person does not need an assault weapon to commit mass murder!

    To say banning assault weapons will stop mass murders or stopping a person from killing is ridiculous!!!

    So the guy walks in with a ninja’s sword and starts hacking kids heads off or learns how to make a chlorine gas bomb and tosses it in the window.The nutjob will find a way! A guy in china slashed and killed 28 kids in a school with a knife. So yes,if someone is determined to do evil they will do evil with whatever method they can get their hands on.That is the reality of it.

    But the liberals surely PREFER that felons, criminals, the criminally insane, and those who are borderline insane be the ONLY ones to have guns! They absolutely MUST, as anybody with ANY sense knows that, especially since felons and criminals are ALREADY breaking laws, they’re just using guns to ensure their success rate, and certainly WILL NOT relinquish this level of control! The insane also don’t seem to be so insane that they break into a police station and try to commit mayhem THERE!

    There is absolutely no other reason to STRIDENTLY DEMAND “GUNS” to be controlled, but NOT people with severe personality disorders, not CRIMINALS, and certainly, not the INSANE or NEAR-INSANE! These people have “RIGHTS”, apparently over and above the rest of us!

    Therefore, if the rest of us (as we may or may not prefer) were ALSO armed, these felons, criminals, criminally insane, borderline insane would rethink their desires to kill everyone they see. In every case! Lately, when the insane ones observed that armed resistance was upon them, they committed suicide! This, regardless of whether the armed resistance was the law enforcement authorities, or a citizen with a ‘concealed carry weapon “!

      I’m sorry that your brain is failing. Many of the people who do the shooting are NOT criminals or felons or determined to be insane. That is why having guns so freely available doesn’t work. People drink too much, have an argument, get angry, become depressed and then shoot guns to fix “Their” problem.

    Great testimony. The idiots probably couldn’t process it though. We’ve elected people to officiate over us who just don’t know what they are doing.

    it’s sad, this woman lost both her parent to a thug. She could have saved them if she had her gun on her instead to the car.

    • Sol_of_Texas

      The (Luby’s) event compelled the Texas legislature rethink and pass the concealed carry and licensing law. There are still classes of establishments where concealed carry is prohibited including government buildings and polling places, SCHOOLS, bars and taverns, hospitals (where notification is displayed) and others.

    • keepersleeper

      I’d vote for her…ANYBODY BUT OBAMA!

    • Sol_of_Texas

      She was actually elected to the Texas legislature several times. She’s a good gal overall.

  • keepersleeper

    Even the playing field against the bad guys: Carry a gun and keep make it your closest friend! There’s a scene in “The Brave One” where Jody Foster shoots BOTH menacing thugs BEFORE she could be accosted! The 2nd Amendment is a powerful weapon against tyranny and being overpowered by the enemy. It also protects the 1st Amendment and more citizens need to understand the necessity of protecting both!

  • DAY

    THIS SHOULD BE ON THE NIGHTLY NEWS,, OH, I FORGOT,,, IT DOESN’T FIT WITH THEIR GUN CONTROL AGENDA,,,

  • keepersleeper

    Is she awesome or WHAT? It seems, lately, women are “guttsier” than men these days…can you imagine THIS woman in the halls of CONGRESS? WOW!

  • sandman

    No matter how many brave and inteligent folks out there, and how many story’s out there like Ms, Huffs, these law makers she talks about, are just that story’s to these law makers, and nothing more, they have no compasion or anything remotely like it, no they have an agenda, and we, the law abiding folks out there, that like to carry a concealed tool, of protection, they n power have the guards, that are armed to the teeth, and they expect us to go about our lives in a maner they themselves would never dream about, because they know it can be dangerous out there, and lets face it, it woulld, or will be a lot easier for them to cntrol us when unarmed, then haveing a 2nd amendment to do exactly what Our Founding Father knew to be true, to keep watch on all the other rights we have in our Bill Of Rights, and all the Amendments, just imagine what the brave and very smart men our Founding Fathers were, and what they could accomplish today! compared to these rats and mice of men we have today, that have had the power go to their heads, and in doing so have lost their soul, and meaning of right and wrong, and the meaning of By the People, and Of the People, it is sorry to say, but there could be numerous story’s like Ms Huffs, and they just dont give a ………………but if they have their way, they will have done nothing but create crimminals out of us, and it will be hard to tell the good from the bad, but on the other hand it will also be hard for the perps. to tell the unarmed with the sheeple. The way of life will be, better to be judged by 12, then carried by 6, it already seems like that now?

    Isn’t it telling that Charles Schumer (D-NY) is on the congressional committee in the video clip and rolling his eyes.

    When guns are outlawed, I will become an outlaw. I will not allow anyone to disarm me. If the government should decide that they are going to go around and confiscate weapons from Americans, I will become an insurgent and I will fight them with everything I can get my hands on. I fought against insurgents in Iraq so, I think I could turn around and be one here if it becomes necessary to fight for our liberty. I swore an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies, foreign AND domestic, and to bear true faith and allegiance to the same”. The oath ends with “so help me God” and it NEVER expires. People like me are the “militia” mentioned in the Second Amendment. I signed up for the Army with a willingness to fight and die to protect our freedom and I am still willing to do so. I will tell anyone who comes to take any weapons from American citizens the same thing Leonidas told the Persians at the Battle of Thermopylae, “ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ!”, which means “come and take them”.

  • DocJimmy

    On this issue, Liberals view the world through a 3/4inch pipe. All they see is that guns of all types are the problem and not the loopy poor soul pulling the trigger. Liberals will strive to remove millions of firearms rather than a handful (by comparison) of unstable twits who manage to get their hands on a semi-auto rifle or hand gun. Liberals with their Politically Correct doctrine and permissive attitude toward everything Christian Conservative Patriots stand for is what has caused the problems you’re seeing now. I’m a Veteran of Vietnam and Lebanon and I too, as Mike11C, took an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic and bear true faith and allegiance to the same”. These words of this oath can not be spoken enough as far as I’m concerned – “So Help Me God”…

    All I have to say is : Oh hell ya!. She gets it and the dumbass elected officials don’t have a stinking clue.

    As a “Victim” of a shooting I can tell you that having a gun would have been no use whatsoever. They are not useful.

    Schumer was a moron then and he’s a bigger moron now. She gets it. He isn’t bright enough to get it.

    Hey Sol-of-Texas, right on, and those animals are armed, which means they have teeth and can bite back if attacked. Pretty difficult pulling a lions teeth (guns) if he’s awake and alert. Considering the grat numbers of illegals and muclims illegally entering our country, soon even school kids will need to pack and protect themselves. Law enforcement only shows up to investigate the crime, usually when it’s already history.

  • mikeledo

    So she planned on carrying an assault rifle into the place? Are you saying she couldn’t pass a background check to own a weapon? How does this enter into the discussion? The issue is assault weapons, large clips and mental illness. Not the state’s right to regulate concealed weapons permits. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

  • Richard Brophy

    She nailed it right on the head. The 2nd amendment is all about protecing ourselves from those clowns in Washington, those who want to govern with tyranny but are afraid to do so because they’re afraid they’ll get shot at. I am so sick of the liberal spins, misdirections, and deceptions.
    Liberalism is the real enemy of this country on so many levels, and it would serve us well to always keep that in mind all the time. It’s Liberalism that wants to kill babies through abortion, to legalize all kinds of drugs that subdue its users, to deprive this country’s citizens from being able to defend itself, to provide cradle-to-grave entitlements even though its unsustainability is clear as day, to push forward depravity in the form of homosexuality as normalcy and a civil right, to rob this country of its sovereignty, to kick God out of our clear Christian heritage. Yes, they are Legion … these Liberals are the most unpatriotic, traitorous, despicable, and satanic people. It is because of these people that Americans need to have a gun to protect themselves from, and they know it, that’s why they need to attack the 2nd amendment to make their dreams become unobstructed reality.

  • DouglasDauntless

    We want freedom, and the only way we’re going to get our freedom back is through the gun. Never go to a gun free zone, unless you are ready to die by some Demo-rat Progressive hands who wants to help Obama and his gun grab. I read where all the shooters that killed people in a gun free zone were all progressive liberal Demo-rats, like our baby killer President who as of this date has murdered 55 million unborn babies, abortion and partial birth to his credit. Nice guy Obama, he doesn’t loose sleep over these killings, he has no feelings for the slaughter of the innocent children from Sandy Hook, Obama used those murders to push his agenda about taking away our guns so that more of us can die for his Communist cause. From Glenn Beck, There are more gang bangers on the streets of the USA then we have in all the Armed Forces. Want to give up your gun now? Better yet buy more guns and ammo we’re going to need them when Obama lets all the his gang-banger Green Army loose on the rest of us with the best automatic assault rifles our tax dollars can buy, and the Gang Bangers and the Muslims are being trained by our Army in Urban war fare against we the American people.Do a little research and find out for yourself like I did.

    This shooting mentioned in the video has close ties to me. My best friend’s son was the first man shot. When the pickup truck crashed into the restaurant, Tom Simmons ran to see if the man was injured and to offer help. Tom was shot and killed instantly, leaving a wife and two daughters. His mom, my friend, was devastated for the rest of her life, which ended four months ago. This new administration should be pinned down and fearing for their lives. They’d be pleading for any help they could get, from any weapon and from any avenue.

  • Tesla

    Fort Hood was a Democrat Clinton Gun Free Zone, and like the woman about another WOMAN had to break the law and bring a gun into a Gun Free Zone, to save helpless soldiers without guns. I hope they don’t put that woman in jail.

    the miIitia and the people are the same thing the Nationalguard is not the miIitia because it is government controlled.

  • Sunrise2

    Shooting of kids and adults by other kids. Instead of making those who do such things take PERSONAL responsibility for their actions, if they haven’t already shot themselves also, those liberals in control are exploiting these tragedies to disarm America, so they can have control. It really ISN’T about the kids, it is about control and socialism. About making MILLIONS of responsible, law abiding people pay for the actions of a few. Not fair in my book. How about yours?

    Suzanne says it so well it brings tears to my eyes. We have a Right to protect ourselves from our Legislatures who write anti-2nd Amendment, Anti- gun laws. Nobody can argue against this statement and make any sense.

    I wish I could afford what they call an assault weapon ! But I have enough to take a stand for a while anyway !! This lady stated it VERY WELL !!
