“…the right of the people to keep and bear Arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.” – Second Amendment to the United States Constitution
Any law which violates the Constitution is NOT law. It’s a blight against our governmental system, a violation of our Constitutional rights and freedoms. No U.S. citizen or law enforcement officer at any level is under any obligation to either follow or enforce an un-Constitutional law. In fact, is it our duty to ignore it, if not stand firm against it and toss the Constitution-violating legislators out of office.
State and Federal legislators take an oath of office to support and defend the Constitution in order to PREVENT this from ever happening. They are NOT authorized to “do it anyway” and let the courts legislate from the bench. That’s a heinous dereliction of their duty, and no matter what other good they may have done or might be doing, it’s completely undermined by their bad.
Allowing them to remain in office is like allowing a horribly abusive spouse to remain in the home because “he/she only beats me to a pulp every once in a while.” GET RID OF THEM!
Washing State’s I-594 bill regulate transfers, not just sales, of all firearms in the Evergreen State. It’s a universal handgun registration scheme, an INFRINGEMENT on the right to keep and bear arms. Those legislators who voted for it are VIOLATORS of our Constitution. Get rid of them!
Law enforcement officers not only swore to protect the Constitution, but put their lives on the line every day. They oppose I-594. They’re smart enough to know how dramatically this violates the rights of the people. They’re also experienced enough to know that it will do NOTHING to keep the criminals in check.
So who did this to the people of the State of Washington? The people themselves. They’re the ones who elected the Constitution-violating traitors into office. They’re the ones who refuse to vote them out. They’re the ones who, 7 out of 10 support universal background checks.
They’re the blithering idiots who allowed this to happen.
