A reminder-Second Amendment Edition




-After the tragic events in Connecticut we are and will continue to be bombarded with calls for more stringent gun control legislation. Since it appears as in most cases of deranged individuals going "postal" that the guns were purchased legally in a "Blue" state no less the real gun control that most gun control advocates desire is the out law of guns altogether. How else would you avoid such tragedies? Though any logical person realizes that even the total confiscation of guns besides being unconstitutional, impractical and impossible in America would not stop crazy or evil people from doing crazy or evil things.

But since the progressive/left will again inundate us with calls to abolish the Second Amendment in practice if not in fact, I thought I would remind people that the Second Amendment has nothing to do with what the argument will be about, rather it is about  the progressive left's actual goal. It is not about "personal safety" on either side of the issue, it is about freedom and protecting it from the likes of those who scream for "gun control" I put it best here

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.
Please note that the purpose of both the "militia" and the people's right to bear arms is to maintain the security of a "free state". Nowhere is hunting or self defense even mentioned though these important off shoots of the Amendment are obvious. At the risk of being put on some list somewhere I will state the obvious, the purpose of the second Amendment to the US Constitution is to protect the people's right to a free state.

Just a reminder

  1. You're exactly right, Jer, but we know that facts and principles won't be a part of this discussion in the administration and the media. When I first read of the CT tragedy, my first thought was, "Here we go again. Never let a good crisis go to waste."

    Meanwhile, CNN reported:

    Beijing (CNN) -- Twenty-two primary school children were wounded in a knife attack Friday in central China, authorities said.

    The attack took place at the entrance to the Chenpeng Village Primary School in Henan province, according to the public information department of Guangshan county, the area where the school is located. An adult was also wounded, it said.

    Several of the children are in critical condition, the state-run website Chinanews.com said, citing local authorities.

    Police say they have detained a suspect, a 36-year-old man from the village, state media reported.
    Initial assessments suggest the man is mentally ill, Chinanews.com said, citing Guangshan authorities.

    China was hit by a spate of knife and cleaver attacks that targeted school children in 2010.
    A number of measures were introduced at the time, including increased security at schools across the country and a regulation requiring people to register with their national ID cards when buying large knives.
