if that's the case, neither is the declaration of independence or the constitution. I now declare this a lawless country, Anarchy will now reign. Congrats Dems. You finally got rid of Democracy.
I imagine I may be the lone dissenter here, but this is a good thing.
We don't WANT more federal involvement in our lives. This is a correct interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. It NEVER has been incorporated. (None of the bill of rights were until well after the Civil War and the 14th Amendment.)
So let me understand: all of you, save one dissenter, WANT more Federal Government input? I am confused by this thought process. So, big brother is bad when it supports something that we do not want. And it is good when it supports something that we do want. I thought the whole idea of "Big Brother" was a bad idea all the way around?
Self-contradiction, by definition, is irrational.
I must say that I do disagree here. The Constitution and Bill Of Rights had to be ratified and accepted by all the states in place at the time. New states had to accept it as the basic law of the land. States rights allow additions to these protections, not to over ride them. Banning firearms is a blatant disregard for the 2A. Once again all states had to either ratify this amendment or accept it as basic law.
The states did not accept the bill of rights as laws that applied to them. They were rules that limited the Federal government. You can disagree all you want. However, the Supreme Court explicitly held that the bill of rights guarantees applied only to the Federal government (See Barron V Baltimore 1833).
