the Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?
Doesn't it matter that this (all) mass killing has absolutely nothing to do with our second amendment rights?
Does it matter that the legislation that is being discussed does not affect anyone's right to own guns for hunting and/or self defense?
Therefore, the legislation being discussed concerns gun SAFETY. Not, gun "control".
The 2nd Amendment PROTECTS my Right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness FROM Authoritarian Gov'ts run by Liberal/Progressive/Socialist/Communists and the dumbed down populace who support them.
The US Gov't creates the Patriot Act, the NDAA and uses CIA run Al Qaida forces to undermine Gov'ts in the Middle East.
The US Gov't in 1913 gave it's Constitutional Duty to control the Money Supply to Private Banks who create and pop Economic Bubbles through the expansion and contraction of that money supply.
Only severely retarded Americans think the US Gov't is here to "keep us safe" through Legislation.
The Second Amendment means whatever nine people in Washington DC says it means.
The Declaration of Independence has no enforcement clause, so you have all the rights that you can afford an attorney to assert for you in court, be they based on the Constitution, laws, or treaties of the United States or any of its states.
This is not a description of a society that any sane person would choose to create or live in, but it is an accurate description of the society we live in.
Sadly that is the case we have now. It wasn't meant to be that way.
Calling me dumb and then saying you'll take on the US government isn't really constructive or productive. It brings to mind this common quote:
I maintain that the "populace" (dumb or smart) have the right to be safe. We are guaranteed the right to "life liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".
The Constitution, including the Bill of rights, exists to define legal government and prevent it's abuse of the people by limiting the laws that may be legally adopted.
I maintain that the "populace" (dumb or smart) have the right to be safe. We are guaranteed the right to "life liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"
Which exactly the reason the FF made sure we had a right to be armed.
The mass graves filled by Progressive government throughout history is why the Founders put in the 2nd Amendment.
And, sure enough, to underscore the point, Mao's China, Stalin's Russia, Pol Pot's Cambodia, Fidel's Cuba and countless other places all show us the wisdom of the 2nd Amendment
Does the Constitution trump the Declaration of Independence? Don't you think that is a stupid question?
