March 5th - ON 2nd AMENDMENT

Obviously, as a gun owner I am fervent about our 2nd Amendment rights, as I am about our entire Bill of Rights.  Actually, our 2nd Amendment is the strongest of the 10 Amendments that comprise our Bill of Rights with the key phrase “the people” being found in the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 9th and 10th Amendments.  And if we are to be a nation of laws, words must mean something, and so it is with “the people”, which is you and me.  

   In law, there is a term called Rules of Construction, which require that the same words used over again in any legal document must always mean the same thing.  Now when we look at the 1st 4th, 9th and 10th Amendments it is all too clear the 2nd Amendment is the strongest of our Bill of Rights because there is precious little free speech in America today; Our 4th Amendments Due Process has been eviscerated by civil seizure laws and abortion until it has become a moot point.  While any reference to States Rights found in our 9th and 10th Amendments have been rendered meaningless.  

  And so any attack upon the 2nd Amendment weakens the only lynch pin left that is holding our Bill of Rights together.

  We have drunks on the road who generally only see real jail time if they kill someone while behind the wheel.  Does anyone propose we take certain cars or everyone’s cars away?  No we just suspend their license, which they can petition the court to restore; yet a driver’s license is a privilege, not a right.  

  I cannot and will not sacrifice nor erode our constitutional rights under false pretense, and therefore we have no option but to hold firm to our 2nd Amendment Rights.
