    The Second Amendment Is Not Negotiable

    December 17, 2012
    By Ron Resnick

    Cries for more “gun control” have flooded opinion and editorial pages in the wake of the school shooting in Connecticut. The opinion that Americans do not have a right to own firearms, and the assertion that the Constitution does not protect the right of individuals to own firearms, is absolutely false — and also incorrect in the context of law.

    In 2008, the United States Supreme Court in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), held that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm for private use within the home in federal enclaves. In 2010, in McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. __ (2010), the Supreme Court held that the right of an individual to keep and bear arms protected by the Second Amendment is incorporated by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment and applies to the states. That American citizens have a right to own firearms is conclusive and irrefutable.

    ---

    We must resist the temptation to abrogate the rights of many due to the illegal actions of a very few.

    No, it isn't - because it will most definitely eventually be changed. If the founding fathers could see the world we live in, they would be dumbfounded that it hasn't already been changed.

    Oh, I can assure you it will eventually be ON the table. And you radical never-give-an-inch unyielding gun nuts will hasten that day.

    I can guarantee you that it will never be on the table. You extremists can cry all you want. It is already a lost cause for the left.

    America will never be disarmed.

    Nobody is threatening to take away the 2nd Amendment. The most radical suggestion on the Left is to increase the percentage of background checks by removing the "Gun Show Loophole". The second most radical suggestion is to revisit the ban on automatic weapons.

    The only thing Obama has done on gun law is to sign a law making it legal to take a gun on Amtrak.

    By suggesting that the Left wants to get rid of the 2nd Amendment you are doing something perfected by communist revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, namely lying to achieve your political goals.

    Obama won't end up passing anything as radical as the Brady Bill, which was endorsed wholeheartedly by Ronald Reagan.

    Perhaps you should actually READ what the left is saying.

    The 2nd Amendment will not be negotiated. If anything, existing gun laws need to be repealed and taken off the table as well.

    That's both crazy and funny. Nuts like you will hasten the day the Second Amendment is ON the table.
