WND Exclusive – 2nd Amendment: What does ‘bear Arms’ really mean?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Well, our vaunted United States Supreme Court has agreed to take up a case regarding the Second Amendment.

This is pretty uncommon, but it does happen – mostly because the Supremes over the years haven’t dared to actually do their jobs to the fullest, so their decisions seem to encompass a narrow scope and half-measures, never fully putting to bed that the Second Amendment clearly gives the right of an individual to “keep,” which means to own, and “bear,” which means to carry, arms on one’s person.

The Second Amendment makes no distinction between open and concealed carry, and thus any argument against either is moot. Nor does it make mention of licenses and/or permits, which is what this upcoming case is about, so these, too, are moot. read more

Is the Bill of Rights Absolute?

by: Brent Smith

Scroll Down for Audio Version

When speaking about the Second Amendment, Lunchbox Joe Biden recently said that “no amendment is absolute.”

Well Lunchbox. If you mean that amendments are not perfect and not beyond change – then you’re right. But if Joe, or whoever wrote what Joe was reading, means that amendments can just be restricted or limited by a single executive’s edict, by legislative action, or just ignored all together, he is dead wrong.

And we all know what he means. It’s the latter, not the former. read more

WND Exclusive – Is there still a right to bear the Constitution?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Many Americans suffer from a common phobia. No, it’s not the very reasonable fear we are living now, of Democrats running the country. That’s not a phobia, for its not irrational.

No, they suffer from an irrational fear of guns. Guns are not inherently scary. They are just a tool – like a screwdriver or a leaf blower. You’ve heard the saying, the right tool for the right job. You wouldn’t use a gun to blow the leaves around your yard and thus you wouldn’t use a leaf blower to defend yourself. You could try, but I’ll bet it won’t go well.

Yet over the years more and more citizens have been purposely conditioned to think guns are scary “weapons of war.” On a weekly basis, we hear of one after another proposed piece of gun-curtailing legislation coming from the left. read more

Embarrassingly Supreme Disappointment

from Conservative Review:

Horowitz: Conservatives get massacred by fake ‘conservative’ SCOTUS

U.S. Supreme Court

Within 35 minutes today at 10 a.m. Eastern, what some thought was the most conservative Supreme Court of all time concocted a fundamental right to transgenderism in the context of labor law, erased the Second Amendment, and interfered with a state death penalty case, but declined to interfere with a California law that criminalizes law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration agents.

Taken in totality, the “conservative” legal movement, which has promoted the idea of “appointing better judges” rather than fighting the entire concept of judicial supremacism, has failed miserably. This was its Waterloo. read more

A Win for the Good Guys in Virginia

There was a vote to ban “assault” weapons, and other gun-related items in the blue commonwealth of Virginia. And the news is nothing short of miraculous.

With all the anti-gun rhetoric coming out of Virginia lately, one would believe that the commonwealth who brought us George Washington, James Madison and George Mason had gone completely off the constitutional rails.

But instead of passing a sweeping weapons ban, cooler heads prevailed and tabled the vote until 2021. It wasn’t a vote in favor of the Second Amendment entirely, but it is progress.

I ask that at the end of the article, you watch the video. It’s quite instructive. And it ends well!!

Three Gun Owners Set Nanny Bloomberg Straight

from the Blaze:

NRA fires back at Michael Bloomberg’s misleading gun control ad with powerful ad of its own

The National Rifle Association on Sunday issued a fierce response to Michael Bloomberg’s misleading gun control ad that aired during the Super Bowl.

The misleading ad claimed that 2,900 children die from gun violence every year. However, as Washington Free Beacon reporter Stephen Gutowski noted, almost half of those “children” are actually adults ages 18 and 19. In fact, the ad merely cites misleading data from Bloomberg’s gun control group, Everytown for Gun Safety. read more

Not All Libs are Against the Second Amendment

Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be anything remaining that the right and left could agree on – along comes a Second Amendment rally, that is evidently so important, it caused otherwise unhinged leftists to join constitution conservatives in the fight to preserve Americans’ gun rights.

Talk about some strange bed fellows.

But I guess there still remains something that is bigger than all of us – the United States Constitution.

I was going to say God, but considering who these groups are – I didn’t want to get too carried away.

Bill of Rights: 9 Apply to the Individual, but 1 Does Not?

by: Brent Smith

No Audio Version

It’s dawned on me what should be the most obvious argument for the individual right to “keep and bear arms.”

The primary purpose of the 10 Amendments that form the Bill of Rights is to protect the natural rights of the individual from an encroaching federal government function. The only way someone would not know this is if they have not read them.

In fact, each of the Bill of Right’s 10 Amendments, of which there were originally 17, states this by use of the words person, people, owner, or accused. The only two that do not expressly state the individual are the 7th and 8th. They do however use inference to make the point that both pertain to the individual.

So when a leftist begins to spout off about the Second Amendment, that it applies only to militias, we must remind of them of this. If necessary, review each of the 10 and it will become clear that the founders did not intend for nine of the 10 to pertain primarily to the individual and yet single out just the Second as not having any individual protection component. It defies logic. But then so does liberalism. read more

More Counties Become Second Amendment Sanctuaries

As the prospect of new, draconian gun control continues to loom, the Second Amendment sanctuary movement continues to grow. Recently, ahead of the new Democratic legislature’s immanent takeover in Richmond next year, counties in the Commonwealth of Virginia have started declaring themselves sanctuaries for Americans’ right to keep and bear arms. read more

Video Podcast – Impeach Trump Poll is Garbage – More California Gun Laws

by: Brent Smith

Fox News Poll is Crap

I explain why the Fox News poll that shows 51% of respondents wish to impeach and remove Trump is absolute crap.

Polls can be created to tell practically any story. Most polls these days don’t take the pulse of the American electorate. They are specifically designed to sway public opinion.

And the Latest Fox News Poll does just that – and is complete garbage.

 

The governor of California signs seven new anti-gun bills into State law

Within these new laws is the slippery slope we on the right have been warning of regarding the Second Amendment.

Start off with the framework – a Red Flag law. After that’s on the book, leftists are free to add-on. And boy do they ever.

With these laws, a whole swath of our population has had its constitutional rights stripped. And scant few are discussing it.

Between anti-gun laws and the impeach Trump cries, we are living a constitutional crisis! read more
