Signs Of The Time, Part 59

While I admire U.S. Vice President Joe Biden for his long-time service to our country and the passion he’s brought to the various positions he’s held through the years, I was put off by a tyrannical-sounding comment he reportedly made last night while asking House Democrats to keep fighting for gun “control” during their retreat in Lansdowne, Virginia. Kate Nocera wrote on the POLITICO website yesterday:

He told the members attending the retreat that he was unwavering in his belief that the recommendations the task force has put forward are not in violation of the Second Amendment.

“It is clearly within the right of the government to determine what type of weapons can be owned by the public.”

(Editor’s note: Italics added for emphasis)

Unfortunately for the Vice President, the fact is, it is not “clearly within the right of the government to determine what type of weapons can be owned by the public.”

The Second Amendment to the United States Constitution reads:

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.

First off, there’s that phrase “shall not be infringed.”

Secondly, no mention is made of what types of “Arms” the people could- or could not- “keep and bear.” Handgun, shotgun, rifle. Or for those who like to point out the Founding Fathers had no idea of just how far firearm technology would advance by the 21st century- pistol, blunderbuss, musket, rifle. Not a peep.

“Clearly?” Far from it.

  1. The hypocrisy of those that wrap themselves in the first while proposing to eviscerate the second is stunning.

    The hypocrisy of those that wrap themselves in the first while proposing to eviscerate the second is stunning.

    If you take away the Second Amendment, it’s my belief the First will soon follow.

  5. I strongly feel that at the least assault rifles should be controlled.

  7. Yes, controlled with both hands.

    AR’s are EXACTLY the type of weapon the Founding Fathers intended be in public hands. When tyranny is the enemy you must be as well equipped as the common foot soldier.

  9. Thanks for the comment Doable.

    I strongly feel that at the least assault rifles should be controlled.

    True assault riles- long guns with selective fire (possibly semi-automatic, possibly burst, definitely automatic)- are already tightly-controlled. More here.
