More gun control. This time, Barack Obama is initiating it via executive orders.
Let’s examine reasons this argument in the US over gun control is continually evolving amidst a good deal of vitriol and media noise. Then let’s suggests some other reasons why this may be taking place.One of the most controversial measures is Obama’s idea that the act of selling even a single gun effectively makes you a gun dealer and subject to federal registration.We’re not quite sure the executive office can promulgate directives for individuals.
Surely there are questions about all of it, beginning with the following statement: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.Here is Merriam Webster’s definition of “infringe.”To wrongly limit or restrict (something, such as another person’s rights)In 2008 the Supreme Court declared that the right to carry a gun was a personal right.
(One wonders what took them so long given that literature surrounding the development of the Second Amendment is apparently fairly clear.)But the Court also said the following: “Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited.”
In other words, the government could impose “reasonable regulation.”A normal person looking at the Second Amendment would probably conclude that it means what is says – that government cannot stop people from buying, selling, owning and using weapons.But in introducing the caveat “reasonable regulation,” the Court probably left the argument as muddy as before.And Obama, late in his second term, is not one to miss an opportunity. Here’s more from the Politico article:President Barack
Obama wept openly Tuesday as he delivered a forceful defense of new executive actions on gun violence, a set of modest proposals to tighten loopholes that likely face quick legal challenges and could be vulnerable to reversal by a Republican White House. The president ran through a list of mass shootings that have happened during his time in office, and teared up as he recalled the schoolchildren gunned down in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012..
.. Obama brushed off criticism that he did not respect the Second Amendment, citing his past as a constitutional law professor. “No matter how many times people try to twist my words around, I taught constitutional law, I know a little bit about this.
I get it,” he said. “But I also believe that we can find ways to reduce gun violence consistent with the Second Amendment.”……MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
