Suppose a candidate for the highest office in the land – a presidential hopeful – bluntly declared that he would strip everyone in the country of their Constitutional Right to Freedom of Religion.
Suppose that candidate declared that he was sick to death of religious strife, Islamic terrorism and the deaths they cause, and therefore as president, he would send armed men door-to-door to confiscate every single religious text, crucifix, mezuzah, prayer mat, incense burner and saintly icon in the country. The doors to houses of worship would be chained.
Further, suppose this candidate declared that thereafter no one would be permitted to practice a religion without official testing and licensing from the government, and even then, only IF the government determined that you could practice religion responsibly and not kill anyone. To be subject to revocation at the whim of the government of course.
Suppose that the other presidential candidates wanted the same thing – but were too smart to actually SAY so.
Do you think that ANY of those politicians would make it out of obscurity onto the national stage, let alone into an actual debate? Do you think ANY of those politicians would NOT be torn apart – figuratively if not literally?
If that’s the case with Freedom of Religion, why is is NOT the case with the Right to Keep and Bear Arms? You know – the one that is second out of ten on the list of the ten most important freedoms in America?
How in Blue Hades does a jackwagon like the Faux-Hispanic Irishman get away with arrogantly proclaiming that “we” will take away ANYone’s guns?
Does it say somewhere in the Constitution that there are second class rights? Is there a sub-clause somewhere that says,
SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED. *unless everybody gets all full of feels and stuff?
And who is this “we” anyway? In case Candidate Jackwagon hasn’t noticed, the vast majority of police and armed forces members are private firearms owners. County Sheriffs in upstate New York have been pointedly ignoring that SAFE Act abomination that Albany signed into law since like 2013. And that’s just registration. I’m sure they are going to get right on that when you tell them they have to go do a confiscation now.
Yeah, good luck with that, skippy. You have the 1st Amendment right to “say” almost anything you want, there Beto-boy. But if you think “we” are doing anything with OUR firearms except hold onto them right here where they are, you have a lot more thinking to do. “We” don’t care what kind of gun it is you think you want to take – the answer is NO.
