Bang, Bang, You’re Dead
You Have Your Rights…., and So Do They.
The Constitution of the United States gives me some inalienable rights. However, the Constitution has been amended a number of times to suit the needs of politicians, and others as seen necessary for the good of the American public.
The Constitution says each citizen, can have a gun, just because, a citizen wants one. Sure, the gun has to be registered but, the intended use of that firearm can change, at any time. the owner could snap, and do unspeakable things. Owners of automatic assault weapons have plans. However, they have the right. Don’t tamper with anybody’s rights.
If you own a gun, maybe you shouldn’t. But it says everybody, and anybody has the right.
I believe it is time to amend the 2nd amendment for more clarification, though, the context with which it is written, really does not give individuals the right to arm themselves because they like the idea. it is written within the context of each individual being allowed to arm themselves within a militia to protect the country. It was written to clarify the militia having free reign to arm each individual serving. It was rendered so, back then, if it had been necessary, the general population could arm themselves against a tyrannical government.
The Supreme Court ruled (District of Columbia v. Heller, issued in 2008) the 2nd amendment as valid but, at the same time, in the same ruling the court ruled only guns for legal purposes were allowed. The ruling further indicated the amendment is archaic, not reflecting today’s technology, and that weapons of the future, not yet imagined could not be, and were not covered by the amendment.
The 2nd amendment was not a license for war in the streets at the whim of someone owning a weapon. It was not meant to license death on a whim. It is more important to these so called, 2nd amendment patriots that war on the streets prevails over peace on the streets if, it means they are losing rights they never had.
It is time for peace on the streets!
Start reading the Constitution, verbatim, beginning with, ‘We the people…..,’ and in that paragraph it outlines a premise that each of us are entitled to a life in tranquility. For all the ‘patriots’ out there screaming your fool heads off about not getting your guns under 2nd Amendment Rights, how about those children whose rights were permanently taken away? Gunned down in a massacre. Their right to live a life in tranquility? You want your rights? The victims in Newtown wanted their rights!
Did you want to demand your rights with a conference call direct to families in Newtown, Conn.? I would bet these same families will want to demand their rights to live in tranquility. Go ahead, talk. Tell them all about your ‘gun’ rights.
Do I sound a little testy, this morning?
