The Second Amendment is not “a common sense Amendment”. It’s an Amendment, period. The Constitution is not “a common sense document”. It’s the Law of the Land and it was supposed to protect “The People” from “The Government”. It failed. Obama was able to avoid compliance but he wasn’t the first person to condemn the Constitution, Jimmy Carter comes to mind. He’s against America. Why is that true? Because Carter, damn his soul, attacks America yet supports terrorists. Carter and the Left support the U.N., not the Constitution as the voice of Liberty. Carter supports the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights which is based on the Government defining the Rights that people have. The Constitution is based on government protecting rights by limiting the powers of the government. Even though the twin ideas of: Liberty of the People and The Limited Power of Government were not well identified in 1776, (the Ninth and Tenth Amendments show the limits of knowledge about Rights and Powers), nor are they universally understood in the twenty first century. Carter’s bowing to the United Nations shows his disrespect for the Constitution and Obama is worse than Carter. Obama ground the Constitution under his shoes when he made permanent appointments wrongly using the recess exception; when he created the Stimulus packages; when he bowed to foreign tyrants in his apology tours; when he signed the unconstitutional ObamaCare bill which the Supreme Court ruled in Unconstitutional but the government can tax people who do not buy health insurance; and when Obama thumbs his nose at the Second Amendment by collecting the guns of the people.
Obama has not yet collected the guns. That’s coming. Biden will make his report and recommend the right to keep and bear arms be further restricted and Obama will obey. When he does he should be impeached for violation of the Constitution but Obama senses the mood of the country. America has weakened itself. The Left has become stronger and has convinced people they can be free and enslaved. It’s like talking by not saying anything. Some things are impossible. Being free requires freedom be understood. Russia didn’t understand it in 1917 and Lenin grabbed power. The Germans didn’t understand Liberty so Hitler took it away. Same for the Chinese before Mao took power. ( The Dalai Lama said “If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.” (15 May 2001, The Seattle Times) speaking at the “Educating Heart Summit” in Portland, Oregon, when asked by a girl how to react when a shooter takes aim at a classmate. Location and capture of firearms registration records has also long been a standard doctrine taught to military intelligence officers, and was widely practiced by German and Soviet troops during World War II in the countries they invaded. See Wikipedia Gun_Politics.) Same for America. If Americans understood freedom, Liberty and the Second Amendment Obama would be impeached and removed from office before he takes the oath of office the second time.
