RARE! Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul Rockin' an AR15! No Really! From 1989.

Just when you thought our favorite septuagenarian couldn't get any more cool-er, he makes (made) an ad with an AR15, in hand! Paul 2nd Amendment 1989:


Is the right to firearms really essential? Doctor and Congressman Ron Paul reminds us that freedom to defend yourself is natural and proper.

** Well... except for the "the 2nd Amendment gives us that right" portion, which we all know that Dr. Paul understands the nuances of Bill of Rights (it doesn't 'give' or grant ANYTHING, as testified in his numerous subsequent public videos, it merely codifies and guarantees pre-existent innate natural rights), it's a sweet little ad!

I have carried a revolver; lots of us do. - Mark Twain, 1895

GUNS: "Mark Twain Put to the Question" interview

The Southern communities are just as peaceful and religious as the Northern. The Southerner may be more highly cultured, and anything he does is naturally conspicuous. Carrying a revolver is a fad, just a fad or a fashion; but the revolvers are mightly harmless. Of course there are desperadoes on the frontier, but that is the only part of the world they live in. Their deeds give a false character to their district.

I have carried a revolver; lots of us do, but they are the most innocent things in the world.

Would you mind posting this

without the "freetochose" header and trailer and commentary?

I'd like just the bare bones so I can post it on neocon blogs and rub their noses in it.


When debating the second

When debating the second amendment, one must go no further until a single, important question is asked, and after that, the conversation should cease to exist. That question is "Is the Bill of Rights a list of privileges given to the people from government? Or is it a list of rights that have been handed down to us from God?" Because, if they are privileges, then they can be had up for discussion and amended. However, if they are our rights, we own those rights and nobody has any business even discussing what I own. You don't get to utter a word about what my rights should be and what they should not be. They are my rights, period. Discussion over.

"Is the Bill of Rights a list

"Is the Bill of Rights a list of privileges given to the people from government? Or is it a list of rights that have been handed down to us from God?"

It is NEITHER!! It is a bill of PROTECTIONS of NATURAL RIGHTS that Government is instituted to fulfill....

Nothing is given.

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Very good point.

Very good point.

This is so cool

I freakin' love my hero

A man ahead of his time...

I was watching the video waiting for it...waiting...

BAAM! an ar-15... nice

Hey, I wonder

if Ron Paul will get a nasty letter from his neighbor...

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Ron Paul Was Right

Remember all that flip-flop unity

Remember all that flip-flop unity bullsh|t republicans tried cramming down everybody's throat? They really f&cked everything up, INCLUDING themselves. GRRRRRRRRR

The WHOLE WORLD will ONCE AGAIN see how REALLY STUPID they are come 2016!

what a badass.

Wow!! Great find

Pretty good quality considering the age of the video as well.

Loved the video..

"I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."


There is no duration defined in the Oath

It looks like an M16 to me

Not that it matters.

my guess is,

it's probably a Semi-Auto only AR15, in either 20" or 22" barrel length.

But hey, who knows? maybe Dr. Paul is an NFA Class III M16A2 20" owner.

Well, if that is his own personal rifle, there goes Doc's coy answer to a recent Alex Jones Show interview [around 24min mark] where AJ asked RP on whether he would turn his semi-auto in if he were 'ordered to' by the dictator puppet oBUSHma, the Doc, in a sweet and sheepish answer retorted: "well...uh... I might not have ANY semi-auto TO turn in, for that purpose..."

I laughed so hard the first time I heard it, thinking to myself, 'you tell 'em doc! WhyTF would any Constitutionalist or 'prepper' ever advertise what he has in his own 'arsenal'!'

But considering the fact that the ad is from 1989, it may have been in a direct response to the January 1989 "Stockton schoolyard massacre", the politically expedient event that gave rise to the collectivist, statist commies and their "assault weapons ban" craze. (Though, the assailant used AK's not AR in that tragedy)

I was thinking the same, but I don't know these very well. And as you said, not that it matters.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.

I love that man.

I love that man.

First time I saw that!


Natural and proper

Therefore no need ever for fruadulent words-on-paper.

Whats this? Ron Paul being

Whats this? Ron Paul being consistently pro-liberty decades ago listing off the same sound, solid arguments that are still relevant today, as always? Thank you Ron Paul.

The video is a little sad, he looks less worn down and defeated back then, its sad that no one ever listened to him, hes been saying the same truthful things during his whole public service. Most consistent politician in recent american history.

Yeah, he's seen many years worth

Yeah, he's seen many years worth of disappointing water under the bridge at this point. I'm always amazed by how up beat he is considering how he's been treated and the incredibly poor behavior from his fellow government officials and the republican party.

Resist the temptation to feed the trolls.
