Here is one of the most powerful and memorable speeches ever delivered – and it is less than 5 minutes. It was delivered on April 3, 2018, as a public comment before the City Council of Greensboro, North Carolina, on a proposal to prevent gun shows from being held within the city. After attorneys and carefully tutored school children had delivered their comments in support of the measure, Mark Robinson walked to the podium, and this is what he said: 2018 Apr 3 – Source: TWANGnBANG

One word, brilliant, speaks the truth from his heart, give me this any time over these prepared sh-t that comes out of politicians mouths.
Could not agree more. Wake up America, we are at war with leftist thugs that are hell-bent on destroying everything that we as red-blooded Americans hold dear. Check out the billy gates foundation some time along with Ed Griffin’s recording about the founding of the federal reserve (no caps deliberately), or read his book “The Creature From Jekyll Island. These idiots will use ANY PRETEXT to disarm us so that when they impose martial law, we are absolutely defenseless! Better git ‘er done America or we are DONE – as in GAME OVER!
I’m reminded of the rumored response given by the Supreme Commander of the Imperial Japanese Forces during his surrender to General Douglas MacArthur when asked what deterred Japan from continuing on from Pearl Harbor to attack the US mainland… “Because behind every blade of grass there is a rifle”. I’m also reminded of an explanation Jesus gave to His disciples… “No one can enter a strong man’s house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. Then indeed he may plunder his house.” (Mark 3:27). Consider: Why would “School Bully Butch” avoid picking on little Johnny? Because little Johnny has big a brother who will protect him and Bully Butch is in his core a coward and only dares to attack those without defense.
The speech Mr Robinson gave was filled with truth and solid logic. The “majority” of citizens are indeed generally law abiding. Only emotionally deranged people, those with hidden agendas and idiots will oppose those choosing to be prepared to defend their person, their homes, their families, their possessions and even those who cannot or will not defend themselves. It’s not just “gun rights” that need protection, but wisdom and sound thinking does too. Lessons are learned, insight gained and opinions change when someone becomes the victim. Forethought and preparation are far better. To the anti-gun and anti-preparedness advocate Iet us say “we will protect you too because it’s the responsible, loving and caring thing to do- now aren’t you glad you have a big brother?”
God help us ?
OMGosh – I LOVE this guy. He is so right. Agree he is absolutely brilliant and speaks the truth from his heart. He and those like him are the backbone of our nation.
Mr Chuck Thomas, Great message spoken from the heart, we the people are the majority as we deplore politicians willing to over-through our Constitution for their political gain and corruption taking away the peoples rights.
America is a REPUBLIC, NOT A Democracy, Europe is a democracy even Hitlers Germany was is a democracy as their leaders are all self serving communist socialist ruling over the people China, Cuba the middle East included.
America is a free Nation because of the gun and Americas Second Amendment Right and Bill of Rights. America must fight to the death of socialism that is encroaching upon America from the political arena as socialism, communism one in the same.
“GOD Bless America”
He has hit the nail squarly on the head, he spoke for the mjority, the majority which elected Pres. Trump.
The passion that is so evidently in this man should be addictive. What is it going to take for Americans to realize what is being done to them? Will enough awaken in time to attain critical mass and stop this insanity? I don’t know but nap time is over if you want to live in the Constitutional republic named America.
He makes so much sense, so much that the lefties won’t listen.
perfectly said and should be said by more people, more often! God bless him for speaking the truth and for those who stood in agreement with him and applauding his sentiments.
Amen; Many feel the same way..Beautifully spoken,passionate and truthful.
ohm and p.s.: we are ALL taking NOTE of the reaction of these commie politicians that run these meetings and railroad their desires through regardless of what the citizens say. They are globalists and wse are taking stock of who they are and where they live and when they run again? Forget it!
where they live, in what state, town and city so we can vote them OUT!
Didn’t know of Mr. Robinson before seeing this post, but absolutely LOVE this speech!!
Mass shootings are the impetus for gun control legislation. So the real problem is how does our society address the psychosis that afflicts these mass murderers?
Mark is right and spoke like the silent majority most of us are.
He needs to be in Congress.. and never eEVER prepare for a speech. that was passinate and FROM THE HEART. He is a PATRIOT!
This is just perfect ! ! ! ! He said more in 5 minutes than most say in 5 hours. What a great patriot.
What an amazing speech! Straight from the heart, directly aimed at the mealy-mouth politicians of the present day! This is exactly the kind of person/s all countries in this world, which is desperately in need, to bring back sanity to our world, that is sadly & dangerously wobbling from a lack of plain common sense and meaningful action FOR the peoples of this world -a world that is literally being “overrun” by Politicians: Today’s “Barbarians”, primarily concerned only about their own selfish need & gain!
THIS MAN IS SPEAKING FOR ALL OF US WHO CHERISH OUR GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS UNDER CONSTITUTION. WITH THE RIOTING HAPPENING IN USA NOW – AND LIBERALS SCREAMING TO DEFUND THE POLICE – ANARKY WILL SOON BE ON OUR DOORSTEPS. 292 POLICE HAVE BEEN INJURED IN NYC SINCE THIS THUGGERY OF BLACK LIVES MATTER HAS TAKEN OVER CITIES. TRUMP AND THE DOJ NEED TO ARREST SOROS ORGANIZATION WHO FUNDS THEM. ANYONE ARRESTED FOR RIOTING SHOULD HAVE THEIR CELL PHONES TAKEN AWAY FOR GOOD.
Amazing speech. I totally agree. In Canada, Trudeau has used the pandemic as an excuse for a huge undemocratic gun grab. As this brave man said, we need to stop targeting law-abiding citizens.
Mark Robinson You have said this for the majority of the people in this nation. You
are brilliant. One person can make a difference and you just did it! Thank you.
Mark Robinson is a great American and I would love for him to be my neighbor.
I like this guy. This is as simple as it gets. Any Socialist/Commie Dem wishing to argue against what he just explained is gonna loose the debate.
And he said that he didn’t have the luxury of a professional speech writer. Doesn’t get any more eloquent than his choice of words.
I wish more people would speak out against the lies being pushed over CoVid19 and the rioting in our streets that are NOT spontaneous. We all should be speaking out like this man. Thank you for showing it.
Thank Heaven for someone who can speak up for Americans. Why can’t everyone see this?
We’re speaking out. Just not being reported by MSM.
This is where it is important to know what our government is, a constitutional republic. The US Constitution is the supreme law of this land, but it is much more then that, it is the supreme CONTRACT for ALL who serve within our governments, state, and federal. It addresses the American people and their weapons, and it does NOT give the governments any authority over them. BTW, the 2nd Amendment does refer to weapons of war from the words of our framers and founders.
“To disarm the people…[i]s the most effectual way to enslave them” George Mason, referencing advice given to the British Parliament by Pennsylvania governor Sir William Keith, The Debates in the Several State Conventions on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution, June 14, 1788
Noah Webster: “Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.” [An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, October 10, 1787]
Joel Barlow: “The foundation of everything is that the people will form an equal representative government, that the people will be universally armed. A people that legislate for themselves ought to be in the habit of protecting themselves.”
Thomas Paine: “Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”
Richard Henry Lee: “Whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them;”
Patrick Henry: “Let him candidly tell me, where and when did freedom exist when the sword and the purse were given up from the people? Unless a miracle in human affairs interposed, no nation ever retained its liberty after the loss of the sword and the purse.” “… The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.”
Joseph Story, 1833: “The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”
Andrew Ford: “25 States allow anyone to buy a gun, strap it on, and walk down the street with no permit of any kind: some say it’s crazy. However, 4 out of 5 US murders are committed in the other half of the country: so who is crazy?”
We need more people like this man to wake up and stand up for your rights. One man standing alone cannot push back with any force. It requires an outraged majority.
I would vote for this man in a heart beat! If only everybody had a set as he does we would not be in the shape we are in today,,, And for those that don’t know what the beneficiary of the trust is, google the cestui que via trust and read about your birth certificate!
Mr. Robinson is running for Lt Governor if NC. He’s got my vote – love him!!!
We’ve got a leftie-loonie governor so would love to see him replace idiot Cooper.
Most mass shootings are “false flag” killings set up by ‘Deep State’-owned & controlled criminal godvernment. THEIR False Flag mass shootings comprise “social engineering” to trigger hysteria among the mindless masses of neo-amerikkans so they clamor for gun grabs and total disarmament and murder of the 2nd Amendment. How do We, Their Victims, address this? Force godvernment to return to being government. Expel the corrupt, criminal political hacks. We need government OF the People, BY the People, and FOR the People. Original intent.
That is what a man looks like when he stands up and speaks out against the government that is trying to take away a citizens rights.
We need more clear thinking and plain speaking in these troubled times. Mr. Robinson is absolutely correct and more people should follow his lead and reject the “loony left”. Compassion and common sense are not mutually exclusive.
Strong & powerful message from this man’s heart. We need more spokesmen like him in the Western World. I am Australian. My message to Americans don’t trust politicians that try to disarm you. They use lies and deceit to control the populace. What happened to law abiding Australians when our Prime Minister introduced laws to take away and discourage firearm ownership didn’t reduce the violent crime rate, criminals were still armed but more confident that they now have control. Prime Minister J. HOWARD lack of knowledge of firearms, coupled with total disregard of the law abiding firearms owners, proved that Australians are SUBJECTS, whereas Americans are CITIZENS. NEVER GIVE UP YOUR RIGHTS OR YOU WILL BECOME SUBJECTS.
What’s wrong with cop’s brains? part 4
Every day the cops are inciting more average people to become protestors. They are not doing this through any extra special malice. They are doing this through ignorance. It just comes naturally to them via the privilege bestowed upon them. The uniform makes them feel special and above the law. It separates them from us unwashed masses that can’t seem to stop touching the white lines on the road. They look for reasons to prove you are a criminal and become indignant when you question their judgment. I AM the law!
Point out the way they drive and see if they give themselves a ticket. They are masters of rationalization. “I have to drive oppressively.” “I risk my life for you every day and you are complaining about it?” Cops also like to exaggerate. They also hate body cams. They hate being judged by objective standards.
Has anyone ever tried to register a complaint against a cop that has overstepped his authority? Try it sometime. You will see just how futile it is to even get your hands on the paperwork to start the process. The system protects them. They cover-up for each other. This is also a huge part of the problem. Your body’s immune system has a shut-off mechanism so that autoimmune disease do not occur (in most of us). Our police system does not have this balance.
If even just one cop decides he does not like you he has the power and authority to make your life hell and no one will stop him until one of you dies from lead poisoning. This is the change that is long overdue. Someone (one of our so-called leaders) needs to start by getting the cops to understand they are public servants not public persecutors. They need to memorize their job description and oath. This will not stop until we have just as much power to prosecute them as they have over us. It is called checks and balances. We have it everywhere else except with cops, judges, and lawyers (the immune system of America). Why? This is why we have no justice. We have looked the other way too long. We must be able to discipline the discipliners because they will not discipline themselves. It is only getting worse. They know we are watching and they still won’t stop abusing their unchecked power. They are drunk with it.
If you need real-time proof that any of this is true here is a bit of advice for the next time you are pulled over for something stupid. Ask the cop to recite the oath he took. See how long it takes before he charges you with resisting arrest.
Your lack of respect supersedes your ignorance. Just try to place yourself in their shoes when somebody is holding a gun to their wife, child, girlfriend’s head threatening to kill them. Just try to put yourself in their shoes when somebody points a gun, even a taser gun at them. Just try to put yourself in their shoes when a drunk is swerving all over the road, speeding and disregarding the lives of innocent people. Just try to put yourself in their shoes when they are holding gun, knife, pipe or other weapons to harm an innocent person. You haven’t got the guts! They are there to protect the innocent, not the law breaking, disrespectful criminals.
Well said Barbara…George’s comment was ignornt to say the least.
Well, George is a left thinker, unable to comprehend any ill effects of their ideas if acted upon.
Mark, you are right on. We all need to take a stand against the garbage that’s going on.
Hey Mark, You did a very difficult thing; Nailing the truth, off the cuff. That was amazing, I enjoyed it immensely.
