Holder reveals his plan for your gun
Exclusive: Joseph Farah exposes effort to promote radical agenda by any means
July 21, 2013
When Attorney General Eric Holder ordered the Sanford, Fla., police department to hold on to all the evidence in George Zimmerman’s trial following his acquittal on murder and manslaughter charges in the death of Trayvon Martin, he was doing more than signaling the U.S. Justice Department plans to subject the neighborhood watch captain to double jeopardy in violation of the Constitution.
By specifically telling the local police they should not return Zimmerman’s gun, he was telling every American firearms owner he had the power and the intent to take their guns, too.
It’s really a double whammy for the Constitution – the highest law enforcement officer in the federal government blatantly indicating ever-so-subliminally that he holds both the Fifth Amendment and the Second Amendment in utter contempt.
The Fifth Amendment, among other things, expressly prohibits any person being subjected to criminal charges for the same offense twice. But Holder plans to do just that. The simple, straightforward meaning of the Constitution is clear – once acquitted of a crime, no court in the U.S. can subject a citizen to another trial.
But there’s more than the Constitution barring Holder from authority to prosecute Zimmerman again. It’s a matter of common law that predates the Constitution. In other words, what Holder is attempting to do, whatever bogus, politically and racially motivated charges might be brought against Zimmerman by the U.S. government, they represent a denial of his most basic, universal, God-given civil rights. Yet, ironically, Holder is expected to file federal charges against Zimmerman for denial of Trayvon Martin’s civil rights.
