Indeed: The right to bear arms isnt up for debate

By Charles C.W. Cooke:

When debating the wisdom of the Constitutions Second Amendment, the media tends to start from the presumption that the question is purely scientific, and that the answers can and should be derived from statistical analyses and relentless experimentation. This approach is mistaken. The right of the people to keep and bear arms is not the product of the latest research fads or exquisitely tortured data journalism, but a natural extension of the Lockean principles on which this country was founded. It must be protected as such.

It is also, of course, settled case law now.

    “It is also, of course, settled case law now.”

    Except where it isn’t, because state politicians and judges around the nation still say “Fuck you.” and deny my 2A rights regularly and wherever they possibly can.

    Uncle knows of Locke. I knew I liked this web page. if you never read it the Second Treatise is liberty porn.

    While 9 Supreme Court Justices did indeed decide in Heller that the 2nd Amendment protects an individual citizen’s right to keep and bear arms, which sounds resoundlingly favorable for those supporting the individual right to self defense.

    However, 4 of those 9 argued that the right could be regulated, limited, circumscribed until completely out of existence. Today it would be 5 out of 9.

    After Hillary is elected, expect it to be 6, 7, 8 out of 9 piously stating that self defense is an individual right, but exercising it is illegal.

    God help the Republic.

    The process is simple:

    1: Rape the Second Amendment.
    2: Let the lower and appeal courts uphold that rape.
    3: Let SCOTUS deny cert.

    Mission accomplished.

    You can conjecture as to step 4 on your own. I won’t paint that picture. I can’t stand screaming children. Bloody Bowie knives are inevitably revolting, regardless of who they have disemboweled, or why.

    Settled case law my ass.
    Look at what that cockamamie Cuomo did to me in New York State with his fucked up SAFE Act.
    Settled my ass. There’s blood vengance to be had.
    They say that we blue collar Americans are angry, and that explains Donald Trump, but cold vengeance is my Cuban friend, Ted Cruz, who has an old score to settle with Castro’s commie Cuba. Ted wants his country back, and ours too. I’m with him. Fuck them commies.

    Settled case law until two terms of President Hillary have had their say.
    And I am a Yankee. Born and raised in the state of New York. The state that sent more men, materiael and money to fight the South than any other state, and which now continues to lead, in tyranny against America and our freedom as Americans.
    As to where I stand now, I reference this:

  7. Chas Says:

    Funny how Stonewall still has his Yankee uniform on in this. Things change.

    We can’t count on the courts. Consider our fellow citizens though. The demand that caused the doubling of firearms manufacturing resulting in the 100+ million firearms sold in the past seven years. Massive noncompliance with gun laws the public feels are unconstitutional. More people getting carry permits. Vast quantities of ammo sales.
    I do have some faith in the regular folks. They won’t easily be cowed by gun control edicts from on high.
    More draconian gun control will, I think be met with increasing levels of civil disobedience.

  9. Ron W Says:

    Chas, good reference and a great speech. Being that the historical context was April, 1861, and that Lincoln had requested they raise three regiments, Gen Jackson was still in his Union uniform colors.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
