All Gun Control Laws are UnConstitutional

 This Administration will not wait for the next mass shooting to heed that call. We will take action to end our epidemic of gun violence and make our schools and communities safer. Today, I am calling on Congress to enact commonsense gun law reforms, including requiring background checks on all gun sales, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets. We owe it to all those we’ve lost and to all those left behind to grieve to make a change. The time to act is now.

I am going to try to make a coherent statement here. But the words i type may come out in a jumbled mess, so please bear with me. And if the words don't make sense, please understand my intent.

All gun control laws are unconstitutional. A reading of the 2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution makes that abundantly clear.

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.

The only part of that to consider is the 2nd part. Where it says the right of the PEOPLE. Not the militia, but the PEOPLE.

Now i ask you, who makes up the people of the United States? Is it members of a militia? Or is it EVERY redblooded American citizen, men women and children? But no animals. In the time of the founders, militias i believe were comprised of white males between the ages of 16? and 40? I think I have those ages wrong. Is anyone going to tell the women of this country, sorry you can't own a gun because you are a woman? Go on, I'll wait while you do that.

This is not about militias, but people. ALL people have the noshit for real RIGHT to own weapons, to bear them without a stupid piece of paper  that says you can. You don't have to ask a sheriff or elected official, Please Sir? Can I carry a weapon? Would you do a background check on me to ensure i am not a felon? Please sir?

Bullshit. Everyone in this country has the legal right to keep and bear arms. That includes felons, teenagers, all children. It isn't up to the government to stop them from carrying, it is up to that persons family. Maybe close friends.

What about states rights? When each state joined this union, didn't they have to swear to uphold the Constitution of the United States? And not just bits and pieces of it? The constitution applies equally to all 50 states.

The part of that sentence that says shall not be infringed. What does that mean to you? I tell you what it means to all people, it means congress does NOT have the authority to pass a law telling you that you cannot own or carry a firearm or ammunition. They just can't, that is what SHALL NOT means.

And i don't care about any supreme court cases. Just because they may have ruled otherwise in some cases, does not mean they know what they are doing. 

The constitution is the SUPREME law of this land, no other law can supersede it.

And that law says shall not be infringed.

All that being said, do I carry a gun? Nope, I don't. I don't feel the need to---yet.

I do believe i have the absolute right to do so.


  1. the constitution is to limit GOVERNMENT POWER. it is NOT to limit INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM.

  2. I've always said the same thing. Folks still come up with the tired arguments "What about felons and the mentally ill?"
    My response has always been, "Have the felons served their time and been released? Then if their safe enough to release into society, they're safe enough to have all of their rights restored, otherwise, keep them in jail. And about the mentally ill...why are they not in an asylum for safety for themselves and the public?"

  3. You are so close it hurts . We , the civil and moral , do not have constitutional rights . We have unalienable rights that once were recognized by our republic form of governance of the people , by the people and for the people. It is for the civil and moral people only , it is wholly inadequate for any other. Our right to life , liberty and pursuit of happiness are endowed by our creator at the point of conception which removes any claim to the contrary by man. This is why some are hell bent on removing Christianity from our culture. It is clear that some no longer hold those truths to be self evident which calls in to question everything that follows. There are many ways to be illegitimate that do not involve voter fraud.

  4. Vern, you nailed it. Why is "shall not be infringed" such a hard concept for politicians to understand?
