Today, I got another copy of an e-mail sent out a few days ago by the “Conservative Action Alerts” gang. The subject line was:
Repeal the Second Amendment First.
THIS IS GARBAGE.
It read in part:
ALERT: Neither the federal government or any state government can lawfully debar the People of the right to “keep and bear arms” without first amending the Constitution! Take Action! Blast Faxes to Congress.
Although I expected it to be a waste of time, I had responded to the earlier message with this:
“You are wrong. Repealing the Second Amendment would give Congress no authority to take away any person’s right to keep and bear arms, because the Second Amendment didn’t give us that right – it merely recognized that right to keep and bear arms belonged to all human beings. That right will still exist even if the Second Amendment is repealed, because it existed BEFORE the Second Amendment did. If you do not understand and preach that concept, you are part of the problem and NOT part of the solution.”
They obviously ignored it – I’m not surprised. It does not distract from the truth.
CONGRESS CANNOT TAKE AWAY OUR FREEDOMS SIMPLY BY SOME PIECE OF PAPER. It will take MORE: violence, and bloody-handed tyranny: the steel fist without a velvet glove.
Outfits like this American Conservative Alert fail to understand the truth or the reality: that Congress cannot legally or morally take away what it did not give. They fail to understand that all the boot licking and “petitioning humbly” and calling and texting and e-mailing and faxing and writing that gang of thugs on BOTH ends of Pennsylvania Avenue is a waste of time and money that they need to spend to buy weapons, ammunition, armor, communications, fortifications, and medical supplies, for themselves, their families, friends, and community.
These people are too stupid to do anything but make the same mistake over and over again. I know other stupid people like that: you cannot work with them and help them because they will not or cannot work things out for themselves.
Sadly, they are so stupid that they will (again) prove that stupidity is the only true capital crime. The rest of us can pray and prepare for the fallout from their stupidity, and those like them for a century.
