So now that it has been made obvious to the Marxists this nation unfortunately elected to run things for another four years that they will not be able to get their weapons confiscation schemes through the legislative process, they have settled on a different tactic. We are about to be visited by our good friend, executive fiat, once again. These clowns acting in a lawless manner should surprise no one, as it is what they've been up to for the better part of four years now. Many of them are no longer hiding the fact that they view our founding documents as a nuisance, openly calling for our Constitution to be discarded, and rendered obsolete. While it is true that our Judicial Branch is responsible for keeping an eye on these particular types of infringements against our Constitutional rights, those particular cogs of our system of checks and balances move ever so slowly.
So, let's take a look at the central issue here, that particular bit of our Constitution that is going to be circumvented with this maneuver.
The Second Amendment to our Constitution:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of
a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms,
shall not be infringed
When campaigning for his boss in 2008, Joe Biden promised in Pennsylvania that his boss, "better not come after my guns." We go through this every four years, where the Democrats try to convince us that they have no intentions of infringing themselves upon our right to both keep and bear arms. There has been much debate about how that Amendment should be read, and it is truly a Rorschach test for political leanings. Never mind that the people who wrote the document, and more specifically the guy who wrote that particular Amendment, George Mason, took great pains to explain exactly its meaning, somehow, comma placement and the phrase, "well regulated militia,' seems to have clouded the issue for that half of our population with a reading comprehension problem that can only be attributed to an Ivy League or public school indoctrination.
George Mason on the Second Amendment:
To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them.
James Madison, the man who wrote the Constitution and submitted it for ratification by those who wanted to form our little republic, believed the first 8 Amendments to be extraneous. His argument was that since the specific authority to do those things guarded against with the Bill of Rights was not granted, then of course our government could never do them. That was why the 9th and 10th Amendments were written and included in the document as a whole. He wanted to make it impossible for the government to ascribe itself any more power than our national agreement granted.
For the leftists who might read this, when I purchase a weapon, it will not be because I wish to go hunting. It will not be because I wish to form a militia. It will not be because I want to go target shooting. It will be none of your business why I may or may not purchase that or anything else. It is my right to do so, and to do it privately. I do not need a reason. I may not even have a reason. Just be thankful that shooting busy bodies is illegal.
As for the idiots that published the maps that showed the locations of homeowners possessing hand guns and such, were I not a gun owner living in that neighborhood, I would be even angrier that you did something so stupid. For you see now, every criminal in that area now knows who can defend themselves, and who is, "easy pickins." You have done more to increase gun violence in America than any one else possibly could have.
