Nowhere is the defeatist liberal approach to American politics more evident than in the post-Newtown campaign for gun control. Liberals are rushing to repeat, like a devout incantation, hand on one’s heart, that “we believe in the Second Amendment” — in an “individual’s right to own a gun.” Half of the legal and moral battle is lost right there and then. Instead, liberals should emphasize that throughout the total American legal history until 2008, the Supreme Court — which at times has been very conservative — has always held that the right to own guns belongs not to the individual but, as the Second Amendment states, to a “well regulated militia.” (For details on the cases involved, go here). That the right to own guns is a communitarian right, not an individualized one. True, the Roberts Court recently ruled otherwise, but liberals are still free to urge the court to reconsider this ruling and fashion arguments that will make it easier for the Court to fall back in line with all who preceded it. It would also help to recall that other civilized societies hold that the fewer guns there are out there, the fewer people will be murdered by guns.
Gun Control? We need domestic Disarmament! -02/20/2013-
I swear, the liberal media just will NOT give up their insane policies, just like the liberal politicians won’t, to drag this country farther and farther into the abyss of lawlessness and lost freedoms. This article in the Huffington (Puffington) Post is a great example of this. They are doing everything they can in this short article to redefine just what the second Amendment really says, by assuming that they know what the founding fathers said in it. But the problem is, for probably a century now, they have gotten it completely wrong. NOW THEY WANT US TO BELIEVE they have it right. The article goes on to say:
Next, liberals have started their gun control campaign, as they sadly so often do, by conceding most of their ground before the give-and-take is even underway. Thus, when dealing with health care, they did not start with a true liberal position (a call for a single-payer system) because they assume that such a position will not play and hence — being the reasonable people that they are — they proposed an option close to the conservatives’ preferred policy. Then the give-and-take ensues — further watering down what was a very thin gruel to begin with.
It seems that the play that they are using on the declaration and the Constitution is just that. PLAY. Something to do, till they finally come up with a plan that more of the people will go for. They don’t use facts. They don’t use actual events that prove their ideals are wrong. They make up facts and delete events so that they can come up with a theory that sounds plausible. It is like the video that I did on You Tube yesterday where I used the term Plausible Deniability to describe what Obama is doing. It seems the liberals and their media is using the same thing. And they all say the same thing as Obama when taking blame for their ideas gone wrong. “IT’S NOT MY FAULT!”
The problem we have here people of the American persuasion, is that when we give in to the demands of the liberals, and give them what they want in exchange for something we want, they get what they want. That is less freedoms for us….and we never get what we were to get.
We need to continue to watch what is going on folks. We cannot afford to lose many more freedoms. But there are bright spots in our nation. Take Wisconsin.
In Milwaukie county, Sheriff David Clarke is calling proposals to seize firearms unconstitutional and warns of dire consequences if such plans are enacted.
“This is about attacking the Second Amendment, it’s about going after the wrong crowd,” the sheriff told listeners to the Alex Jones show.
Clarke blasted gun control proposals triggered by presidential executive orders and said he would not enforce unconstitutional laws.
He told Jones, “First of all, to me that would be an act of tyranny. So the people in Milwaukee County do not have to worry about me enforcing some sort of order that goes out and collects everybody’s handgun, or rifles, or any kind of firearm and makes them turn them in.
“The reason is I don’t want to get shot, because I believe that if somebody tried to enforce something of that magnitude, you would see the second coming of an American Revolution, the likes of which would make the first revolution pale by comparison.”
We are allowing this nation to be swayed in the wrong direction by a media that will not give up until they get their bedmates the liberal politicians what they want. And Compromising with them will do nothing but get them closer to what they want, and take us farther from the way this country was formed. ‘Nuff said. So get ready for the next phase of the gun control efforts of the left folks. It is coming. Mark my words.
God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless us to use more common sense
