AZ: Second Amendment: An American tragedy

A year ago, Democratic members of the U.S. House of Representatives staged a sit-in demanding a vote on federal gun-safety bills following the shootings at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. The National Rifle Association’s lobbying was largely blamed for no vote happening. But looking deeper, the Second Amendment, with the unique American individualism wrapped around it, underlies all. It is America’s fundamental gun problem.

As Michael Waldman at the Brennan Center for Justice suggests in Politico Magazine, the NRA’s construing of the Second Amendment as an unconditional “right” to own and carry guns (a “right” beyond actual constitutional law in Supreme Court rulings) is why it thrives and has clout.

"the NRA’s construing of the Second Amendment as an unconditional “right” to own and carry guns..."

It's right there in the text of the 2A. "The right of the people to keep (own) and bear (carry)arms..." It's not "construing," it's "reading." Leftists like to pretend it's mysterious and murky in its meaning, but it really could not be more obvious.

"a “right” beyond actual constitutional law in Supreme Court rulings..."

Aww, wrong again! The idea that the 2A doesn't mean what it plainly says wasn't invented until the 20th century. Before that, it was absolutely uncontroversial that the 2A means exactly what you're saying it doesn't. Then there's Heller...

Also... the shooting at the Pulse club in Orlando was an act of Islamic terrorism. If only we'd had strict gun control like France and Britain, we would not have to worry about such things. We could be free of Islamic terror and murder like they are, if we only had more gun control. Right?


 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The supposed quietude of a good mans allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside...Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them... — Thomas Paine, I Writings of Thomas Paine at 56 (1894).
