The S is hitting the F, America!

Why would people be concerned about the restriction of firearms? All throughout the twentieth century, gun confiscation was followed up by mass roundups and the extermination of people considered to be undesirables by Communist governments. All in all, it is estimated that over one hundred and sixty million people were murdered in peacetime by their own governments. Clearly, had these people refused to surrender their natural rights to self-defense the outcome would have been different.

The left has become completely unmasked in their intentions. There is no longer any doubt whatsoever that they seek nothing less than a full repeal of the Second Amendment and the disarming of good, law-abiding Americans of all weapons. Despite the fact that Donald Trump, who happened to support the assault weapons ban under Clinton by the way, recently tweeting that a repeal of the Second Amendment would never happen, anti-gun laws are being passed at the local level without a peep from the President. The truth is that they don’t need to repeal the Second Amendment at all, they simply have to gain enough public support by creating a hatred of firearms and their owners to pass laws that pull the teeth from the Second Amendment. This is exactly what they are trying to do. As usual, the attempts to demonize the gun culture by blaming innocent people collectively for the crimes of deranged individuals has backfired. David Hogg may have been the best thing for gun rights as their main target, the NRA, has enjoyed surging memberships.

The City Council’s of Deerfield Illinois and Boulder Colorado have recently passed local “assault weapons bans” with the expectation that owners will surrender their weapons within sixty days or become criminals. In Illinois, they expect to be able to levy a fine of one thousand dollars for every day of non-compliance. How do they expect to do this? It is against the law for a locality to pass statues going against the federal Constitution.

Article VI, paragraph II, of the Constitution, is known as the Supremacy Clause and it establishes federal law in compliance with the Constitution to be the law of the land. Chief Justice John Marshall, ruling in Marbury vs. Madison in 1803, declared that federal laws passed are in compliance with the Supremacy Clause only if they are pursuant to the Constitution itself. (Heritage Guide to the Constitution)

“The Supremacy Clause does not grant power to any federal actor, such as Congress. It deals with resolving conflicts between the federal and state governments once federal power has been validly exercised.” (Heritage Guide to the Constitution)

In other words, in order for state laws dealing with constitutional issues, such as depriving an individual of their rights and property without due process, the state must be in compliance with federal law. There is no section in the United States Constitution which allows for the confiscation of private property or the banning of firearms, period as the supreme law of the land, the Constitution, protects the natural right of self-defense.

A federal court in Massachusetts has just ruled that a ban on AR-15 style rifles is not unconstitutional as these types of weapons are not within the original meaning of an individuals right to keep and bear arms. U.S. District Judge William Young made the following determination.

“The AR-15 and its analogs, along with large capacity magazines, are simply not weapons within the original meaning of the individual constitutional rights to ‘bear arms,’” U.S. District Judge William Young wrote in a decision Thursday in Boston, dismissing a lawsuit over the state law.”

This is absurd as the Second Amendment itself was written for the express purpose of protecting the Citizen Militia.

“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.”
