Don't these politicians realize that they are trying to infringe on a constitutional right which they swore oaths to protect? These people should all be kicked out of office IMO.


They know exactly what they are doing, and they don't care.

They are TRAITORS to the republic.

I'll go a step further: Refusing to work is insubordination which means you can be terminated from your job and be denied unemployment benefits.

So much for those lifetime pensions...

Right? Gun control isn't fascist or communist or any other ist I just don't think it will achieve much of anything. I do think the sit-in is silly... maybe a backwardly thinking way of saving their asses when their seats come up for re-election. Trouble is I don't think most centrists want the gun control they're proposing and the left damn sure isn't going to forget that none of them did a thing about the DNC corruption. Well here's to numb asses and sore tailbones.

Traitors?

Do they not also have the right to free speech? Do they not have the right to protest for what they believe?

This republic is not just for those that you agree with.

By the way, do the people that support your thread know that you also support forms of gun control and would limit the 2nd amendment right based upon one's religion?

I haven't forgot about that.

If Congress were held to those standards, the GOP would constantly be replacing reps and senators.

Tell me MORE how gun control hasn't been the democrats AGENDA since FDR ?

FDR the first major infringement.

Johnson second major infringement.

Clinton TWO signature pieces of infringement that created the background check.

That is the reality.

Someone surly does need to EDUCATE themselves.

I don't think it will do much of anything either, but I find it silly to compare a peaceful protest to Brown Shirts.

Nope.

Since I don't have a RIGHT to own a firearm.

I am only allowed to own what they tell me I can.

Of course AFTER PROVING myself 'worthy'.

You do have the right to own firearms. Perhaps you are confused.

So you are actually saying that these people, since they hold a position you disagree with, do not have a right to free speech.

Also, are you going to comment on the aspect of you wanting to control one's 2nd amendment right based on religion?

You are pro gun control.

These are the same people who want to take away your free speech!

So.... neo96 is correct, they are TRAITORS and should be hanged!

Article VI is the standard. They can get up or be removed:


The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.


Support the Constitution or get out.

Do you have a right to obstruct business at your place of employment without losing your job, free speech or not?

Irrelevant.

The consequences of exercising free speech is not equal to being a traitor. That was the aspect I was addressing.

Yo the Kim Davis deal said government employees have NO constitutional RIGHTS when working.

I could make you a laundry list.... just take a look at this traitor Chris Murphy, the leader of the sit-in.....

Murphy Proposes Constitutional Amendment to Limit Free Speech, Press. Would Eliminate Centuries of Safeguards.
www.dailyructions.com...

The proposed amendment would authorize Congress, states, and local governments to, for instance, (1) restrict what most newspapers publish, etc...

I say we hang him first!

I am a gun owner. Avid marksman.

I have no problem with people protesting in a civil way or any way for that matter. I think those folks are wrong but maybe it will force some better debates.

We can't always attack the other side for everything they believe.

It may be our turn someday to sit on the floor and force a debate. So it's best if we tolerate dissenting opinions Especially if the conversation is swayed by what I consider a bad arguement and reasoning. We may be doing sit ins to restore the constitution.

There are two things that should not exist in a REPUBLIC.

Gun Free Zone.

Free Speech Zone.
