That’s an infringement, people… Some interesting statistics

Our Second Amendment is abundantly clear:  “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”  I’ve covered the details of each portion of it elsewhere.  and countless very bright and capable people, such as Penn and Teller, as well as Bill Whittle, clearly bring home the bacon.  Sadly, there remain far too many knuckleheads in Washington who can’t read, much less understand, the common American English in which our two-page Constitution and its Amendments were penned.

Consider the following news excerpt:  “With emotions running high in the aftermath of the Newtown Sandy Hook shooting, politicians on the State and Federal level have begun introducing legislative actions to curtail access to firearms…”

That’s an infringement, people, and it shall not be tolerated.  Ever.

“…parents may soon be forced to register firearms with their child’s school under threat of criminal penalties.”

That’s an infringement.

“In Massachusetts, another proposal would require storage of semi-automatic rifles at government approved storage depots.”

That’s an infringement.

“…in the State of New York, congressional representatives have already passed legislation that requires registration of every semi-automatic rifle…”

That’s an infringement.

“…and reduces maximum magazine capacity to 7 rounds of ammunition…”

That’s an infringement.

“…and Governor Cuomo has floated the idea of gun confiscation.”

That’s an infringement.  A massive one, at that.

What the hell is wrong with you people?  Did you fail out of fifth grade?  Did you never take Civics or American History like the rest of us?  What the hell is your major malfunction?  Why is it you don’t understand the meaning of the word “infringement” and why trespassing on this ground have killed hundreds of millions more people than all firearms in the United States?  If you can’t answer that question, you failed history.  Get thee to a library!

Merriam-Webster:  “an encroachment or trespass on a right or privilege,” and by the way, it’s the Bill of RIGHTS, not the Bill of “privileges.”

The Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution very clearly states that “powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” Furthermore, our Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution very clear forbids ANY infringement on the right to keep and bear arms.

Since NO powers concerning firearms were delegated to the U.S., and since the Second Amendment specifically forbids any infringement on the right to keep and bear arms, these proposed infringements are illegal.

I repeat:  THEY ARE ILLEGAL.  They are un-Constitutional.  They are unenforceable (at least by law enforcement officers who adhere to their oath of office).  They are unlawful.  Every civil, military, and law-enforcement officer and naturalized citizen who took an oath of office to support and defend the Constitution has a duty to OPPOSE these outlandish un-Constitutional infringements on our right to keep and bear arms.

God willing, we will.  Armed societies are SAFE societies.  The next time Piers Morgan tries to convince you that his 35 gun murders per capita in the U.K. is somehow better than America’s 11,000 gun murders, just ask him why violent crime in the U.K. per capita is still THREE TIMES higher in the U.K. than it is in the U.S.  The U.S., despite it’s “massive” gun ownership rate, remains very close to the average for violent crime throughout the world.  Most anti-gun countries top the U.S. in terms of violent crime.  One that doesn’t is Switzerland, which requires every male homeowner to be fully trained and armed with a state-supplied assault rifle.  They have one of the lowest violent crime rates in the world.

So, do not let Piers Morgan, Feinstein, Pelosi, Obama, Sarah Brady, Matt Damon, Hillary Clinton, Rosy O’Donnell, or any other the other anti-gun jerks twist the facts on you.  KNOW the facts.  The truth will set you free.

By the way — Statistics don’t lie.  Tell you what, health care officials.  When you can equal our success rate, you will have earned the right to share your opinion with us.

Until then, shut it.
