2 Thoughts to “Over 20 Million Hold Concealed Carry Permits as Supreme Court Test Case Looms”

    I believe the Bill of Rights is part of the Constitution, and what part of the Constitution can be altered/changed by passing a law???
    Government was never “Enumerated” the power to alter/change anything about the Constitution, powers not enumerated to the government are “RESERVED” TO THE PEOPLE OR STATES.
    Only a “Constitutional Amendment” by the States and “PEOPLE” can alter/change the Constitution.

    As explained by Hamilton, Federalist Papers No. 29

    “Since the fear of the people was that the federal army would usurp the people’s liberty,
    it makes sense that the intent is for the people to be allowed to keep and bear arms at all

    and Madison. Federalist paper 46

    “Extravagant as the supposition is, let it however be made. Let a regular army, fully equal
    to the resources of the country, be formed; and let it be entirely at the devotion of the
    federal government; still it would not be going too far to say, that the State governments,
    with the people on their side, would be able to repel the danger.

    Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of
    almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people
    are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the
    enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of
    any form can admit of”.

    Between Hamilton and Madison there can be no mistake as to what the intent and
    purpose of the Second Amendment was to accomplish.

    And that was to be the “Backbone” of a “National Strategy” written within the
    Constitution for armed citizens to always be the ultimate “National Defense” of their
    Country, Constitution, Government and freedoms, against all enemies, Foreign or

    Obviously, Personal weapons capable of fighting such war are a necessary part of that

    The Tenth Amendment makes it clear there are limits on Government powers to
    legislate, and powers not enumerated are reserved to the States and People.

    Tenth Amendment
    “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it
    to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people”.

    Madison, when introducing the Bill of Rights had this to say about them.

    “they will be an impenetrable bulwark against every assumption of power in the
    legislative or executive; they will be naturally led to resist every encroachment upon
    rights expressly stipulated for in the constitution by the declaration of rights”.
    (The Annals of Congress, House of Representatives, First Congress, 1st Session, pp
    448-460. )

    Hamilton, in Federalist Paper 84 ask the question:
    “Why even include a Bill of rights/freedom of press, if Government can not legislate outside the enumeration of powers granted to it”??

    “When rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or
    legislation which would abrogate them. [Miranda v. Arizona, 384 US 436, 491.]

    Citizens are authorized to use those guns against anyone attempting to deny them any of
    their Rights,

    “There can be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of this exercise of
    Constitutional rights [Sherer v. Cullen, 481 F 946]”

    It’s obvious that the political agenda of the left is so contradictory that it borders on irrational. If there is one issue that brings out the stupidity of whining liberals it’s Americans Constitutional right to own and bear firearms. The most glaring example is their desire to “de-fund” law enforcement while at the same time restricting individuals legal right to possess and carry firearms for self defense. Then we have their “open borders” policy that allows violent criminals into our country. It’s another example of the evil that binds the democrats to the globalist/socialists. God made man (and women) but Samuel Colt made them equal.
