Because I don't agree with how the argument is characterized it makes me anti libertarian?
I am about denying ignorance, and it is ignorant at best when people say that the government is trying to take
all firearms from people. It is ignorance splashed with hubris to insist anyone here is protected under their own interpretation of the Constitution.
I am just attempting to educate those people on that reality.
Congress makes laws, they have educated people that tell them whether or not a proposed law would be constitutional, they have people that say yes and
people that say no. If one of those laws get subjected to judicial review there are going to be justices that say yes, and some that say no. Often
5/4. Wouldn't that seem to indicate that either 1) The Constitution is not as easily understood as some pocket carrying people think or 2) Decisions
are agenda driven or 3) both
My pet peeve is not just people that claim they have an absolute right, but that they believe it requires no one else to agree, no one else to give
that right its power. There is nothing physical that can't be taken away from you.
