I have trouble understanding a 'the law is the law' approach to justify obedience to 'gun control'.
If the 'law is the law',what happened to the law that reads in part-"The Right of The People to Keep and Bear Arms Shall Not Be Infringed"?
Last time I looked,that law was supported by the Supremacy Clause,which reads in part-
"This Constitution.......... shall be the supreme Law of the Land......"
I fully understand that its not a good idea to be talking about violating the 'laws' that the government enforces with a JACKBOOT
the Constitution prohibiting it from doing so,because we dont need/want any 'attention' of said Jack Booted Thugs aimed in our direction.....
....but there comes a time when we must all denounce unjust usurpations of liberty by government,even if that means people we might not like having that liberty are free to excersize it-for the sake of argument,I would rather suffer the inconveniences of a small criminal class than a government that 'protects' me by turning inalienable rights into government administered privileges(at taxpayers' expense,of course).
If your worried about a career criminal getting access to guns,its not like 'gun control' is going to stop him.Only being permanently removed from society will do that.
'Gun control' only places the burden on the rest of us to 'prove our eligibility' to excersize a supposedly inalienable right.
'Gun control',when viewed in context of its 'accomplishments',can be said to be two things-a dismal failure at controlling violent crime,or a glowing success at reducing an inalienable right to a government administered privilege.
'Gun control' is racist and evil - regarding the law which established the 'prohibited possessor' list,it is a foreign and unwholesome restriction on the unalienable rights of American citizens,with roots in Wiemar/Nazi 'gun control' laws.
Around the same time Hitler was disarming his victims for the Holocaust,this was said-
"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun."
– Mao Zedong (1938)
Hence,'gun control' is not about your safety.It is not about keeping dangerous people unarmed.It is about only ONE
'Gun control' must be denounced.
And to hell what those who support it might say about it-its hard to understand their opinions anyway,what with their heads so far up their backsides.......
One way to get the illegitimate,illegal and anti-Constitutional 'gun control' laws removed 'from the books' is if we as a people refuse to abide them.This means refusing to obey them and enforce them.
Another way is something thats happening right as we speak-there are 8 states who have adopted the Firearms Freedom Act.
'Gun Control' enacted by the Government is blatantly illegal.
We should all be able to agree on that point if we understand the meaning and intent of the Second Amendment.
"Can our form of government, our system of justice, survive if one can be denied a freedom because he might abuse it?"
– Harlon Carter
As to discussing who is violating the illegitimate mala prohibita laws in public or in a publicly available format-
