Secession Proponents Do Not Want A Civil War; And No, They Cannot Be Stripped Of Their Firearms
Detractors make unfounded claims to rubbish growing secession movement
Nov 16, 2012
Several detractors have claimed that American citizens who sign petitions in favor of secession are advocating a new civil war, and can rightfully be stripped of their firearms.
As the secession movement continues to grow in all 50 states, with the total signatories to petitions approaching one million people, critics on the left and the right have claimed that the motivation of its proponents is to violently rise up.
These detractors are most likely attempting to poison the well of the overall issue, or at best have completely failed to grasp the concept of secession.
In a ludicrous, sardonic and sophomoric piece in the London Guardian, Diane Roberts suggests, that those in favor of secession want to “re-enact the American civil war”. In between labeling anyone who supports the idea a “white supremacist” or “fundamentalist zealot”, she argues that secessionists are “sore losers” that want to “return to 1861″.
Roberts says that the idea has “zero legal status”, and argues that the tenth amendment is null and void.
