I am so tired of debating liberals over the 2nd amendment. It’s as if they live in some kind of fantasy world devoid of any common sense or reasoning ability.I think I have the answer. Don’t debate gun control. Don’t debate the 2nd amendment. Just ask your liberal friends this one questions and their own answer will shut them down.
Of course this being an election year, both parties and their presidential candidates are pushing hard with their agenda on gun control and the 2nd amenment. I guess I am just a simpleton because the phrase “shall not be infringed” seems pretty rock solid to me.
In today’s political landscape where you can’t find many politicians that ever even mention the Constitution, much less know what is in it, it seems like the Bill of Rights are just an after thought. It is quite remarkable how far this country has come. From a country that was determined to give as much power to the people as possible and limit the government as much as possible to a country where the government is the answer to everything. And this includes the government taking away any right it deems necessary. The majority of the public just falls in line. In fact a large percentage even think it is a good thing.
It’s worth noting some of the things our founding fathers said about the Constitution and the right to bear arms. In this year of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, and the Presidential race. I know I’d like to hear more from the man who actually does reference the Constitution, Gary Johnson. He isn’t the perfect candidate but he is a far cry better than your major political party offerings.
