The beauty of the Founding Fathers is that they were simple and precise in their writing. Take for instance the Second Amendment to the US Constitution, part of the individual Bill of Rights, “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” – that seems pretty straight forward: “shall not be infringed.” But our liberal progressive comrades seem to have a problem with reading comprehension. Take for example the new proposal from our esteemed US Attorney General Eric Holder regarding infringement.
As the Daily Caller reports, Attorney General Eric Holder wants to explore “common sense” gun reforms, like mandating tracking bracelets for gun owners, which they would need to wear before they could activate their firearms. And I can just imagine who would be responsible for registering and “activating” our assigned bracelets. What sort of a crazy mind comes up with an idea like this? But what is even more disturbing is the fact he’d actually say this in public on the record!
Holder made his remarks while testifying before a U.S. House of Representatives appropriations committee on Friday. He acknowledged the existence of the Second Amendment, which gives people the unqualified right to own and carry weapons, but nevertheless expressed support for several gun control measures that he described as “common sense reforms,” according to The Washington Free Beacon.
“One of the things we learned when we were trying to pass those common sense reforms last year, Vice President Biden and I (truly a caucus of two idiots) had a meeting with a group of technology people (liberal progressive special interests) and talked about how guns can be made more safe by making them either though fingerprint identification, the gun talks to a bracelet that you might wear, how guns can be used only by the person who is lawfully in possession of the weapon,” said Holder, referring to so-called “smart gun” technology. “It’s those kinds of things that I think we want to try to explore so that people have the ability to enjoy their Second Amendment rights while at the same time decreasing the misuse of weapons that lead to the kinds of things we see on a daily basis, where people, kids especially, are struck down.”
As a law-abiding citizen, I don’t need a government-issued bracelet or fingerprint registration, read “shall not be infringed”, to allow me to enjoy my Second Amendment right. Bottom line, why would I trust “Mr. Fast and Furious” to decrease the misuse of weapons and the dissemination and promulgation of illegal weapons? And here we go again with big government believing it can come into our homes and decide how best to protect our children!
Message to Holder, there are safes for that very reason and many of us keep the gun separate from ammunition — we are smarter than you think.
I was just out in the State of Washington this past Saturday and Sunday speaking in Wenatchee and Walla Walla and there was a recurring question, “What do we do when they come to take our guns?”As I told folks, the liberal progressive socialists will never try to take your guns outright, they’ll just devise means by which they infringe upon and constrain your ownership — with this sort of “smart gun” technology.
Just so you know how it works, a smart gun requires the shooter to be wearing a bracelet or watch with an RFID chip that communicates with the gun and allows it to fire.
I wear two bracelets on my left wrist honoring three Soldiers who lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. One was given to me by their mothers and the other by a First Sergeant. I never take them off. I certainly will not be taking them off for any government bracelet, watch, or any other tracking device to infringe upon my Second Amendment right and provide this onerous corrupt government a means to monitor my activity with MY gun.
