Kevin Tully, an Air Force veteran who spoke out against gun control to a standing ovation at a New Trier Democrats' gun panel held last Sunday, has been featured in an interview on 'The Blaze,' a news website co-created by media personality Glenn Beck.
"I’m not a liberal, I’m not a conservative, I’m not a Republican, I’m not a Democrat. I’m an American — I believe in the Constitution, I believe in our country," Tully told The Blaze.
“Throughout history, any king or emperor that wanted to oppress the people– with whatever their views were, their new laws or taxes– the very first thing they did was they went around and rounded up everybody’s weapons,” he added in The Blaze interview. “It didn’t matter if it was clubs or all the way up to firearms…That’s where it goes.”
In his speech on Sunday, Tully cautioned attendees about the threat of tyranny, while also trying to prevent other members of the mostly pro-gun audience from interrupting the other speakers.
"[Tyranny is] not a wolf that dies," he said at the gun panel. "It's a wolf that breeds, and it may not always be iin your backyard, but it's always looming on the horizon."
