How Judges Ignore the Constitution on the Right to Keep & Bear Arms

Despite its many gains over the years the NRA has failed to bring a Second Amendment affirmation case before the Supreme Court and many people are asking why.

It certainly seems like a great idea to bring about a case to the Supreme Court so that all of these anti-gun activists and state’s would know once and for all that they can not infringe upon the Second Amendment. The NRA is the perfect organization to bring forth this lawsuit since their motto has to do with defending 2A.

Perhaps another question that should be asked—and a better one—is how can judges violate their oath to defend the Constitution by favoring their personal policy preferences without consequences?

The answer lies in the not so subtle but often misunderstood shift that occurred in the American political scene around the turn of the century (1900). Though it had a much smaller following then, Progressivism (sometimes called Leftism) was the impetus of that shift.

Fueled by secular humanism, Progressive philosophy holds that man is not imperfect or limited but rather perfectible. Unconstrained by either the outside forces of God or moral law, Progressivism put forth the idea substitutes the government for religion and God.

Attorney General William Barr recently pointed out in his brilliant speech to the Federalist Society that progressives see it as their mission to use the “coercive power of the State to remake man and society in their own image.”

According to Barr, part of that image is a society in which they imagine no one would ever use a gun for a violent reason, therefore the only reason one would need a firearm is for hunting purposes.

As Senator Cory Booker and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has equated to us in their Green New Deal, the new progressive ideal is veganism, so their utopian society has no need for weapons for any reason.

Unlike conservatives, who believe in the Constitution, progressives have no problem with circumventing the establishment by any means possible. Barr went on to say, “Conservatives tend to have more scruple over their political tactics and rarely feel that the ends justify the means… but there is no getting around the fact that this puts conservatives at a disadvantage when facing progressive holy war, especially when doing so under the weight of a hyper-partisan media.”

So, what does that have to do with the debate over gun control and Second Amendment rights? Conservatives are originalists. They believe in following guidelines set by the Constitution for changing laws.

However, says retired military officer and researcher Dean Weingarten: “If a particular outcome is not what a Progressive wants, they feel free to change the law with judicial rulings.”

Consider the history of the Progressive agenda and its constantly shifting narrative. 50 years ago, the First Amendment seemed to be the sacred possession of the left, as it was to everyone. Now, free speech is seen by many progressives as the enemy of the state.

It’s as you see the big picture of the stranglehold Progressive thoughts have on higher education and the courts that you begin to understand the uphill battle the Second Amendment advocates face.

Hopefully electing a man like President Donald Trump and confirming Attorney General’s like William Barr can stem the tide of the anti-gun assault on the Constitution.

  1. Them judges ain’t got the power to do that that’s out in our constitutional rights to care bear arms to carry arms wherever we want so all of that bullshit that they trying to do is stupid our forefathers gave us that right into the constitutional right and they trying to take that away from us. This country is getting to be more calm in this band along allows.

  2. Given these concepts of firearms or weapons becoming unnecessary, would our society then become based upon survival of the fittest? And, how would one defend themselves against the animals now looking to eat them? Also, with no hunters to thin the herds of plant eating animals, deer, rabbits and so forth, our own food supply would now be in danger. And so on down the slippery slope!

  3. Lie-beral DEMONocrats…the syndicate of fake, hate, negate, ingrate, degenerate, agitate, instigate, segregate, separate, isolate, desecrate (Bible burning), depopulate (abortions), and D O M I N A T E ! They have crossed over to the dark side and have went off the deep end.

  4. Judges are to base their decisions on what the CONSTITUTION STANDS FOR, NOT THEIR OPINION OR INTERPRETATION.
    FAILING TO FOLLOW THEIR OATH OF OFFICE, THEY AS ANY EMPLOYEE SHOULD BE SUBJECT TO TERMINATION FOR THEIR FAILURE TO PERFORM THEIR DUTY AS PRESCRIBED BY LAW.

  5. I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT I’M LIVING IN THE AMERICA I USED TO KNOW AND LOVE.

    OUR ENTIRE GOVERNMENT, WITH THE CONGRESS/ JUDICIAL DEPTS THE MOST CORRUPT EVER. I BELIEVE THAT EITHER JOHN (THE TRAITOR R O B E R T S, SHOULD BE FIRED/JAILED, OR THE USELESS CORRUTP SUPREME COURT SHOULD BE FINALLY ABOLISHED, FOR IT HASN’T DONE ANYTHING GOOD FOR AMERICA IN MANY DECADES, IN FACT THEY CREATE MORE HARM THAN GOOD.

    EVRY DEPT WITHIN THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS O BE DOWNSIZED, AND THE CORRUPT AS HELL FBI, SHOULD ALSO BE ABOLISHED, FOR THEY WILL NEVER AGAIN ATTAIN THE STATUS OF AN HOENST LAW DEPT WITH/FOR THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA.

    THE HOUSE, HAS PROVEN MANY TIMES OVER, THAT THEY ARE NOT THE ONES WHO SHOULD BE HANDLING OUR MONIES. THEY JUST BLOW IT AWAY, ON FRIVILOUS THINGS, AND FOREIGN COUNTRIES.

  6. Any judge who ignores the CONSTITUTION and thinks that they can make laws from the bench
    should be considered as domestic terrorists and traitors and must be removed from the courts.
    They have violated their oath of office and should also be charged with dereliction of duty and
    subversion of the AMERICAN citizens.

  7. The problem with the court’s is that Federal Judges have to much power over the entire country. Even though this was addressed by the Supreme Court, it seems Enforcement has fallen by the wayside. Judge Shopping should be banned, whereas say the 9th circuit cannot rule on national issues, this is unconstitutional as well. As far as the Rats, and their utopia. They fail to account for criminals, and Prison. Want gun crime to go away, lock up armed felons for 25 years hard labor, Period. Because as always, Guns are not the problem, criminals are.

  8. The last paragraph seems to indicate this is an older post. I wish there was a date on it.

  9. after serving my country for 10 years i am certain that we need to come together as one people independent of our so called elected officials. this is a body of ultra rich people that have designed a system of laws that they then\mselves are immune from. this mentality of entitlement is slowly killing us all. i believe there is a definate move to create a society consisting of either very rich or very poor. and legislation is currently being crafted towards that end is reflected in pulosi statement of let them die. a divided nation cannot stand and if our nation continues current financial and political eliteism surely we cannot remain united

  10. The article reeks of Republican Conservative dribble that ends on focusing on the main reason Donald Trump ever got near the US Presidency when he shouldn’t have, he supported the 2nd Amendment and Hillary Clinton aligned herself with every Democrat with a gun-control agenda that matched one of the key unsuccessful Democratic political platforms they refuse to discard. The major mistake that was made way back in the 1800s is the reason attacks on 2nd Amendment rights of “ownership and the carrying of arms” has continued to the present. You could say it began with Wyatt Earp being allowed to violate the Constitutional right to carry a firearm in any town he enforced the law in, this set a precedent! Since then. Republicans and Democrats have agreed together on passing laws to circumvent the 2nd Amendment and other Constitutional Laws when needed that restricted the government’s power, this was done to extend government power over the individual rights of citizens by continuing to establish a precedent of law to fit the direction of political winds. There are numerous examples of this such as outlawing The Thompson SMG, the creation of the ATF itself, the allowing of US military arms to be used against US Citizens which began with the taking of 2 BARs from a military armory to use in the ambushing of Bonnie and Clyde. Also, I defy anyone to show me in the US Constitution where there is a restriction put on how a US citizen is allowed to carry their “arms” (knives, guns, etc.) either openly or concealed. The point I’m making here once you start compromising on your rights it isn’t long before they began to diminish until they are gone. Currently, to carry a firearm you have to pay a government extortion fee to get a concealed carry permit for a right the US Constitution already gives you, and just try to carry any other “arms” concealed such as a knife over 3 1/2 inches, an expanding baton, bear mace, and etc. I can assure you if it is discovered you will be hustled off to be confronted by our expensive legal system few citizens can afford. Most of this government overreach has been done to make law enforcement’s job easier and safer for them at the cost of citizen’s rights and safety! You can point the finger and play the political “Blame Game” that is so popular with Republicans and Democrats or you can put the blame where it belongs, with us citizens who have tolerated the passage of such laws that gradually have removed our rights over a period of time. I quote: “It is far easier to remove people’s rights gradually than it is to do it suddenly!”

  11. Progressives constantly trample on our constitution because it means nothing to them. It takes years to get one case through the courts then they just turn around and pass another. Until there is a law that states that those who trample on our constitution are enemies of the state and will be locked up for a minimum of 50 years their antics will continue.

  12. I base my entire concept of “right to bear arms” as a personal defense and deterrent directly upon our nation’s right to bear nuclear weapons for our national defense and deterrent. If it is good enough for the nation, it is good enough for me. But don’t tell me that the nation can stock the silos without limit yet I have to face constraints limiting the type of firearms I can possess and the amount of ammunition I can stash. The Constitution was crafted by minds morally superior to those diddling with it, today. We should all remember that while the Constitution promises and delivers our freedom, it also requires that we protect it against assault. In the end, that is why the 2nd Amendment exists.

  13. The govt. fears the 2nd amendment, the right of the people to defend against tyrants who try to take away our freedoms rights. Yep its here what the founding fathers predicted

  14. As I recall, Jefferson predicted that the judiciary would render the constitution meaningless by means of construction when he called them “sappers of the Constitution”. IMHO, he was right on target.

  15. So, what exactly did Barr do for President Trump and our country? I think he bailed out on us. What has Durham accomplished?
