‘No Amendment Is Absolute’: D.C.
Student School Walkout Organizer
Says We Must ‘Regulate the
Second Amendment’

Breitbart Big Government, by Penny Starr

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 4/21/2018 9:18:42 AM

A small group of mostly high school students gathered in front of the White House on Friday as part of the National School Walkout, an anti-gun protest launched by a Connecticut teen following the shooting deaths of 17 people at a Florida high school in February. (Snip)“And so too must we regulate the Second Amendment,” Berlin said. “Just as the freedoms of the First Amendment are subject to rules and regulation so too must be those protected under the Second.” “No amendment is absolute,” Berlin said. “Your right to a gun does not supersede my right to graduate high school.”

Sounds as though he could have come out of one of Obama’s creative constitution (small c) classes at U of Chicago years ago...

The young "skulls full of mush" have no idea what is in the Constitution.

But they follow Nobama by blowing off any particular law they want to flaunt.

The new hippies have lost their minds

Ask this idiot if the 13th Amendment is also
"not absolute" and if that means people can own slaves again.

Regulate the Constitution? How about starting with the First Amendment? Prosecute those who use it to lie and mislead people. How about allowing civil suits when the media causes harm, while hiding behind the Amendment?

Since there are an estimated 20,000 gun laws in force in the United States, it´s safe to say that the 2nd Amendment is already being regulated. Perhaps if that number moved to 20,001...gun violence would cease to exist.

He is right that amendments are subject to alteration or even deletion, however, there is no second amendment to alter or repeal.
The article of the fourth is called the ´second amendment´ in American slang, but no such thing exists in the Constitution.
If government school ´teachers´ were more than merely ignorant dolts, they, and these kids would have read the Constitution and know that.
As the articles of the fourth through the 12th are part of the body of the Constitution they require a completely different method to enact change, and that method would be VERY unpleasant to these ignorant quislings.

There´s on Constitutional right to graduate from high school but believes my right to own anything including a gun of which I committed no crime with should be taken away because they say so.

The 2nd Amendment is an unalienable right.

"To understand the Second Amendment as the Founders did, we need to remember what the Constitution does. It defines how the federal government is to function – and the very purpose of its design is to secure our unalienable rights. Consequently, unalienable rights are senior to, on a higher level than, the Constitution and, of course, any amendment to the Constitution." - Robert Curry

To brain-dead LIE-berals, abortion is an absolute Constitutional RIGHT, and every 14 year old girl can get one without her parents´ permission or even knowledge. Even though "abortion" in not mentioned ANYWHERE in the Constitution.

But the right to bear arms (which IS clearly written in black and white in the Constitution) is antiquated and must be destroyed.

It´s nearly time for Civil War II to start. And I´m putting my money on all the good people who own guns and who are willing to fight to keep our Constitutional rights!!!!

What´s the point of sending your kids to school, if they aren´t teaching them anything?

Little boy, the Constitution is the set of rules for MAKING rules. There is a process for changing it, where you can negate or change a previously active rule, but YOU CAN´T REGULATE the Constitution. Have someone tattoo it to your little forehead, in reverse, so you can read it in the mirror when you´re admiring yourself.

What part of "...shall not be infringed" is so difficult for these lunatics and fools to grasp.

ANY restriction on keeping and bearing arms whatsoever is an infringement.

ALL of the 20,000 existing gun laws are infringements.

There is NO other Constitutional Right which requires advanced permission from the government to exercise. That is a clear infringement.

I really wish that our Founding Fathers had used the language that they used elsewhere - "Congress shall make no law..."

It is the clear meaning of "..shall not be infringed.", but MIGHT be a bit harder to weasel around.

The issue isn´t spoiled punks looking to grab power. The only issue that matters is WHO will enforce the tyrants demands? What LEO or Army is going to enslave fellow Americans? IF these demons ever find enough goons to try that, all bets are off.

While they inch their way to the new Stalin, they want to make enough ´laws´ that in effect make you a walking felon by their standards. Subject to their whims. OK, we will see how that works.

The first anniversary of this “investigation to nowhere” finally revealed the real character of Special Counsel Robert Mueller with a stunning series of blunders. It turns out Mueller isn’t really a dreaded “witch hunter,” much less Inspector Javert. Mueller instead turns out to be Elmer Fudd. Fudd’s declared target, Daffy Duck, lost no sleep over his murderous intentions. Elmer Fudd was a flock hunter. Lacking the ability to aim and hit a target, he would aim at the whole flock of birds overhead, assuming something just had to fall. It might be a bluebird, a whooping crane, or a California condor

Not so long ago Robert Mueller, desperate to show he was actually doing something, anything, more than just wasting taxpayer dollars on fake allegations of Donald Trump/Russia collusion, indicted three Russian companies and thirteen Russian nationals for “trolling” the 2016 Election. The liberal media slobbered over the indictments even as actual attorneys scratched their heads wondering what Mr. Mueller was up to. You see – the entire thing was a P.R. stunt without a shred of actual evidence and now a federal judge is taking him to task for it. Mueller never thought the indictments would end up in court.

Special counsel Robert Mueller´s team has informed President Donald Trump´s attorneys that they have concluded that they cannot indict a sitting president, according to the President´s lawyer. "All they get to do is write a report," Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told CNN. "They can´t indict. At least they acknowledged that to us after some battling, they acknowledged that to us." That conclusion is likely based on longstanding Justice Department guidelines. It is not about any assessment of the evidence Mueller´s team has compiled. A lack of an indictment would not necessarily mean the President is in the clear. Mueller could issue a report

A family-of-five say they have never been happier after selling their five-bedroom house and everything in it - in order to move into a 180sq ft trailer. Renovator Dino Petrone, 36, blogger Ashley, 32 and sons Gabe, 8, Gavin, 7 and daughter Quinn, 4, from Ventura County, had what many would consider an ´ordinary´ life in California. However when the family stumbled across a piece of land they described as ´perfect´, they decided to downsize in order to make it their own, swapping their family home for the $8,000 (£5,900) trailer, which they´ve turned into a luxurious abode to rival

Top Trump administration officials and Republican lawmakers offered heartfelt tributes to John McCain Tuesday night at the International Republican Institute’s annual freedom dinner, striking a marked contrast to the continued controversy facing the White House over its handling of a crude closed-door joke about the Arizona senator. “Tonight, there is a man standing here right beside me, and you and I can see him in our mind’s eye,” said Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, one of the Freedom Award recipients. “He’s a giant, in my mind, of American public life.

Democrats in Iowa, like Democrats everywhere, have gone around the bend. Last Thursday, Tom Steyer, a leftist hypocrite of epic proportions, headlined a town hall in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. A woman in the audience said that she couldn’t see any difference between President Trump and Adolf Hitler. Steyer suggested that a fine distinction might be drawn, but added that the urgency to impeach Trump–a nationwide campaign that Steyer is spearheading–derives from the risk that if permitted to remain in office, Trump may murder millions: [Video] These people are crazy, obviously.

FOX News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano on Wednesday said NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick can return to the gridiron if he can prove NFL teams colluded to keep him from playing. “The collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and its players prohibits discrimination on the basis of political viewpoint,” he told FOX Business’ Dagen McDowell on “Mornings with Maria.” Kaepernick sparked the debate during the 2016 season when he refused to stand for the national anthem to protest social injustice. He has not played since he opted out of his contract following that season. “If Kaepernick can show an agreement among owners to

A new report suggests an imminent Inspector General (IG) report may rule that FBI and Justice Department officials broke the law in their handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Investigative reporter Paul Sperry said Thursday that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz has “found ‘reasonable grounds’ for believing there has been a violation of federal criminal law in the FBI/DOJ’s handling of the Clinton investigation/s,” adding that the top watchdog official has “referred his findings of potential criminal misconduct to Huber for possible criminal prosecution.” (Tweet) In response to growing calls for a second special counsel to probe the
