Dem Sen: Second Amendment Not
Meant For Citizens To Take Up
Arms Against Government

Real Clear Politics, by Ian Schwartz

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/7/2013 9:28:03 AM

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) on states nullifying federal gun laws: I mean, let´s look at the context of nullification. Nullification was last used by Southern states to try to eviscerate Civil Rights legislation, to try to prevent states from basically enforcing desegregation and frankly, I think history will look back on this round of nullification as kindly as it did on the last round. It is laughable also because it is a total bastardization of the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment is not an absolute right, not a God given right, always had conditions upon

Oh really? And the low info voters will believe everything this ignorant, lying Democrat says. I would love to see a debate between him and Mark Levin about his statement.

His "reasoning" makes government our master, and we its slaves. Seems to be a common theme in democrat interpretations of things.

and I quote "That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security."
so much for Senators reading and UNDERSTANDING the constitution and the Declaration of Independence

What was it about then? Rabbit hunting? Hmmm... that was a great issue in the 1780s, wasn´t it? If not hunting, was it for preventing home invasions by thieves? Hmmm... that also does not seem to have been a great issue back then.

Well then, was it concern about being able to resist tyranny? Ahhhh.... that indeed was an issue back in 1780. So then, it would seem that the issue that provoked the 2nd Amendment was indeed citizens taking up arms against an evil government. This fact would indicate that Senator Chris Murphy (D) is a liar or a fool -- or both.

Gee, does he mean when the southern Demon-RATS did everything in their power to stop segregation and to keep blacks on the plantation?

As I recall, it was the Republicans who were pushing equal rights for all people, and Demon-RATS that were fighting the rights of blacks with everything that they had.

Chris Murphy, who here in CT helped wreck the state with a $1.5 billion tax increase passed just after Nov. 2010. Now there´s a $450 million defecit just for the present fiscal year; the Dems spent everything and more, and held news of this deficit until one week after they were all relected in Nov. 2012 - now Murphy has moved on to DC to wreck the USA as well as CT. He has learned well from "Live Shot" Blumenthal, who taught Murphy about staying in front of cameras.

Senator Murphy:

You have received chapter and verse citations from replys #3 and #17 regarding the incipit nature of your assertions. However, as those citations may exceed your grade level in English Comprehension, let me offer a final consideration.

This country was formed by an act of rebellion against an established government. The right to rebel against a corrupt is exactly what the framers were codifying as they had rebelled against the crown.

Thomas Jefferson, the founding father of your political party, stated that the "The tree of Liberty requires frequent watering with the blood of Patriots and Tyrants." Mr. Jefferson also opined that the interval between Revolutions should be about twenty years.

The Rights in the Bill of Rights are most definitely Rights derived from Nature and Natures G_d. If rights and benefits are granted by govenment they can be taken by government and therefore they are no longer rights but merely licenses. The founders had no intention of granting any form of license power to the central government and that is one of the reasons that they specifically prohibited Heraldry.

Finally regarding your reference to Treason, please take a look at the conditions prerequisite for the filing of a Treason Charge in the United States versus any other country in the world. YOu will find that our prerequisites are extremely restrictive. You will note that none of the leaders of the Second American Revolution was ever prosecuted on a Treason Charge.

If the Nutmeggers of your constitutiency have any understanding of the History of the United States, you will be looking for new employment opportunities in the near future.

Be gone and good riddance,

Old School Banker

Sen. exemplfies the brain joke floating around the internet:

A patient near death needs a new brain. Doctors tell the family a brain from a Republican can be bought for 200 dollars or one from a democrat for $20,000. The family asks why the drastic difference. The doctor replies that plenty of used republican brains are availed while the democrat brain is brand new. Democrats don´t use theirs.

Sen. Murphy is NOT using his - maybe he should donate it to charity.

I love it. This is beautiful.

Now, this is a conversation/debate/argument/donnybrook that´s worthwhile having.

The idea that the Second Amendment was put in there in order to allow citizens to fight their government is insane.

The Second Amendment wasn´t meant to ALLOW us to fight OUR Government but to provide the MEANS to fight ANY Overbearing Government.

These Jerk-Wards have no comprehension of what they mess with.

It is interesting to note that the founders, after leading their fellows in a successful armed revolution, still considered a monopoly of force by the government to be so dangerous that they did not trust even themselves with that power, but pointedly placed it in the hands of the public.

Of course the second amendment is intended to preserve the right of arms to the citizens. The fact is that the second amendment - in fact all the amendments that make up the bill of rights - cannot be eliminated or even negatively altered through the amendment process of the constitution because they were specifically designated as natural rights beyond the legitimate authority of any government. They were unalterable conditions upon which the constitution as a whole was ratified.

Eliminating or as the founders said, "infringing upon," the second amendment clearly invalidates the entire constitution, upon which every other enforceable law in the country is based.

Every official, including the president and the officers of the supreme court, is specifically violating his or her oaths of office if they officially advocate, lobby for, or rule against the constitution which they are sworn to support and defend.

If we still had an educational system not run by the progressives all or at least most americans would know this.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov.

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter.

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
