Yet another Moonbat goes rabid over Heller ruling

Oh can you just feel the outrage, the hopelessness the far Left is feeling? Well, if you have a working knowledge of the Constitution, and have studied what the Founders said about private gun ownership as an absolute right, you will not share the idiocy spewed here  

On Tuesday, five members of the court edited the 2nd Amendment. In essence, they said: Scratch the preamble, only 14 words count.In doing so, they have curtailed the power of the legislatures and the city councils to protect their citizens.

The majority opinion in the 5-4 decision to overturn a Washington, D.C., ban on handgun possession goes to great lengths to parse the words of the 2nd Amendment. The opinion, written by Justice
Antonin Scalia, spends 111/2 pages just on the meaning of the words “keep and bear arms.”

Some view this court decision as an affirmation of individual rights. But the damage in this ruling is that it takes a significant public policy issue out of the hands of citizens. The people of Washington no longer have the authority to decide that, as a matter of public safety, they will prohibit handgun possession within their borders.

 

 

Apparently the writer has no grasp of the words “shall not be infringed”. The Constitution does not grant any rights, it protects rights that, as our Founders said, were given not by governmernt, but by the Creator. Just as “the people” have no right to ban free speech, or freedom of religion, they have no right to deny their fellow citizens the right to arms either. No wonder this individual seeks a repeal of the Second Amendment. They simply thinks you and I should not have the most basic of rights, the right to defend ourselves.

    No right that is granted is a right. It is merely a privilege we have until such time as the government decides to take it away.

    That the decision in Heller was 5-4 is stunning. Indeed, any but a unanimous ruling says that the Supreme Court has strayed ever so far from the Constitution. We see (in both the decision and the dissent) many cites of previous cases. Why? One would think the only documents having bearing on this would be the Constitution and the Federalist papers.

    But what do I know. I bow to the enlightened editors of the Chicago Tribune, who tell me the Second Amendment should be repealed.

    This is how the “Left” operates, the tendency to squash those who DARE assert their individuality. You have no rights at all. The greater good, the feelings or others, collectivism. I don’t give a flying flip about the problems of the big cities since I prefer to live in rural America.
