Mark Robinson isn’t a gun owner, but he’s going to bat to fight for his Second Amendment rights. The Greensboro, North Carolina man said he normally doesn’t make time to go to a lot of city council meetings or be politically active, but when he found out his city council was considering banning or cancelling a gun show, he was determined to go to a meeting they announced on the topic.

After hearing some of the comments at the meeting, Robinson said he couldn’t hold back. “I do not intend to sit idly by while politicians take away my rights as a law-abiding citizen,” Robinson said.

“I’ve heard a lot of people talking about minority groups. When are you all gonna start standing up for the majority? … I’m the majority! I’m a law-abiding citizen who’s never shot anybody. It seems every time we have one of these shootings, nobody wants to put the blame where it goes, which is at the shooter’s feet. You want to put it at my feet! You want to turn around and restrict my right! It’s ridiculous! It doesn’t make any sense,” Robinson said.

“The law-abiding citizens of this community and many communities around this country – we’re the first ones taxed, the last ones considered, and the first ones punished when things like this happens, because our rights are the ones be taken away!”

“Gun show or no gun show, NRA or nor NRA, I’m here to stand up for the law-abiding citizens of this community,” Robinson ranted.

He said we’re vilifying the policy and making the criminals into victims. “We’re going to keep our rights, come hell or high water!” he concluded at the end of his EPIC 4 minute rant.

Friday morning, Robinson was interviewed by Fox & Friends, and said, “The response to this has been so overwhelming…I thank God that it touched so many people and I really thank people for the positive response.”

“You have fringes on both sides that are screaming, and the solid middle is just being overlooked. We’re overtaxed, we’re underrepresented, we’re disregarded. Often times our words are ignored and that needs to cease. Good people need to start standing up,” Robinson said.

“We need to start going down to our city councils and our town halls. I’m not going to write my congressman. I’m going to FIND my congressman, and I’m going to confront him face to face, and I’m going to tell him, ‘You’re not going to run over me anymore. You’re not going to put me last. You’re going to put me first,’ because the law-abiding citizens are the ones who make the wheels turn, and we need to have our voices hear.”
