Craig: I didn't ask for it
Here's the link.
CA linked it as well, with a few more concepts to blend.
...as ratified... would make almost all of the complaints go away, I think - not only from my house, but the broader Right. But "The Establishment" and everyone on the Left (and every FSA parasite belongs in either the Establishment or Left camp) will never let us scale back to an ...as ratified... position.
Consider the post below, in which I point out that it is the Executive Branch that has all of the guns and bullets. That's usually the guy who makes the rules.
But where, folks, is the Constitutional Authority for the FBI, for instance?
Most people point to the 1887 Interstate Commerce Act, which has grown since it was passed into law.
...as ratified... gets rid of the ability for the Feds to carry guns and kick in your doors.
I have one nit to pick for those of you who are disgusted with the Flag, or the Constitution.
Consider your argument for 2A. Do you not tell people that the gun is not the problem, it's the person who uses it improperly who is the problem? The gun is not evil. Nor is the Flag. Nor is the Constitution. But in the hands of Bad People, these tools can be abused.
I'll remind you of Colonel Cooper's counsel when next you see a flag or Constitution and feel disgust: “The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.” ― Jeff Cooper, Art of the Rifle
If we few, righteous Patriots use the Flag and the Constitution as intended, we can correct our problems.
Think about it.
