They don't really understand what the Constitution is, do they?
As an active member of Oathkeepers I take offense to your comment. No one in the Oathkeepers organization is "crying" about anything, we are simply
honoring our oaths. Furthermore I have absolutely no friggin idea where you are getting your information but I have seen no mention of anything any
remotely suggesting that there is "public support for constitutionally repelling the second amendment".
You are obviously very confused concerning the workings of our Constitution and the process to constitutionally repeal an amendment. First of all
Congress and the executive branch pushing for gun control legislation is a very, very long way from a Constitutional repealing of the second
amendment. In order for it to be a Constitutional repeal of the second amendment it would take a Constitutional Convention with a super majority vote
of the states, not to mention the fact that the whole point of the Bill of Rights is to have a set of protected amendments that cannot be repealed.
Would you care to inform me where we have had a call for a Constitutional Convention?
A mear call for tighter gun control legislation by a small majority of the citizens of this great nation does not constitute public support of a
repeal of the 2nd.
Perhaps before you go insulting the men and women that have fought and died to secure your right to act like an @$$ you should get your facts straight
concerning what it is you are discussing. All of us at Oathkeepers took an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and
domestic and when we have duly elected representatives that are oath bound to defend and secure the Constitution and the rights of the people trying
to pass legislation that directly violates the rights of the people then we will voice our opinions for all to hear.
The mear fact that our Congress and president is trying to infringe upon our God given and constitutionally secured right to bear arms is the pure
definition of tyranny and as unconstitutional as it can get. The USSC ruled in Miranda v Arizona in 1964 that the exercising of a constitutionally
protected right cannot be criminalize or infringed in any way what so ever. The ruling of the USSC has been repeatedly upheld in both federal and
state courts and therefore any attempt by the government to infringe or criminalize by limitation the 2nd amendment will be an unconstitutional
actbper Miranda v Arizona.
We are not crying because there is overwhelming public support for a repealing of the second amendment. We are pi$$ed because unlike the trash we have
in DC, we take our oaths to heart and honor them everyday.
