Many times, we can be in a conversation and come to the realization that the other person has no real understanding of the topic. This is particularly true when it comes to gun rights. And even more so, the U.S. Constitution.
The same views expressed against the Second Amendment, are also used against The Bill of Rights.
The Daily Caller reports:
Sunday, during the NBC/YouTube Democratic Debate, O’Malley blasted both Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders saying, “I’ve listened to Secretary Clinton and Senator Sanders go back on forth on which has the most inconsistent record on gun safety legislation, and, and I would have to agree with both of them.”
O’Malley’s disregard for the Constitution is sadly the status quo for most Democrats. If it were not, they would not be discussing the matter.
If we are to be Constitutional in our thinking, we would never allow any gun legislation. Because, the Second Amendment says:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
That seems very clear. The Founders had as their goal the maintaining of a Militia for the perseverance of a free state. They did not have game hunting as their goal. They did not have as their goal the freedom to hunt one’s own food. They had the defense of the people from a tyrannical government as their goal.
This is why what O’Malley opines next is so very troubling.
The Daily Caller continue.
As governor of Maryland, O’Malley said, “After the slaughter of the kids in Connecticut, Lester, we brought people together. We did pass in our state comprehensive gun safety legislation. It did have a ban on combat assault weapons, universal background checks. And you know what? We did not interrupt a single person’s hunting season. I’ve never met a self-respecting deer hunter that needed an AR-15 to down a deer. And so, we’re able to actually to do these things.”
What O’Malley and others who think like him must be told, is that they cannot because such acts are illegal. If the federal government can arm federal troops with a weapon, so also should citizens. The Second Amendment never had anything to do with downing dears, but downing tyrants, and those who support them.
