On Obama's Gun-Control Executive Actions

It's not just insanely violent video games but prescription-drug effects: Depression, homicidal and suicidal thoughts.

What about consistency? Drones have been murdering hundreds of innocent children, pregnant women, mothers, old people. The innocent are still rotting in GITMO. The innocent children are bombed and shot in Gaza by those who stole the homes of the parents and grandparents and great grandparents of those children while the US supplies the perpetrators, the criminals, with the money and weapons and ammunition to do it. The innocent children of the West Bank are still having their homes taken away by the invaders, occupiers, who went there because they coveted the children's land. We are told that our nation is putting crippling sanctions upon the Iranian children because Iran might start a nuclear-weapons program even though there is zero proof for that ever supplied.

In the US, we suffer illegal, unconstitutional searches. We are spied upon constantly and illegally. We are told that we cannot peacefully assemble to protest for the redress of legitimate grievances while US President Barack Obama hypocritically reminds us that the people murdered in the movie theater in Aurora, Colorado also had that right denied them by the shooter. We are told that our free-speech rights are limited to utterly unconstitutional free-speech zones/pens or cages. Our peacefully assembled college students are pepper sprayed en masse. The people who caused the Great Recession are generally richer than ever while the people who didn't cause it are told they must sacrifice their children's food to pay the debts caused by the ultra-rich fraudsters still being shielded by the President. The list of illegalities, of unconstitutional acts, is long and growing. The 2nd Amendment truly was about safety, security, and the defense against tyranny, domestic or foreign.

Yes, guns were used unethically to enslave the black Africans hauled over here against their will to serve as beasts of burden deprived of their humanity. Yes, guns were used to massacre American Indians. Those acts though do not overturn the 2nd Amendment. The potential need for well-regulated militias against domestic tyranny, as contemplated by the Amendment itself, has not been nullified. The 2nd Amendment has not been amended away. If you want gun control, amend the Constitution. That's the proper way to do it. This nation has been doing things improperly for far too long.

According to Barack Obama:

There will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all-out assault on liberty; and behind the scenes, they'll do everything they can to block any commonsense reform and make sure nothing changes whatsoever.

Well, commonsense says amend the Constitution. Don't as usual just act as if it isn't there unless for the moment, it happens to suit your fellow cronies and you.
