NAT’L – GUN POLITICS – Parting Shot | Freedom’s Day of Reckoning is Upon Us

John Adams’ observation that “Liberty, once lost, is lost forever” has mostly held true in human history, but not so for the Second Amendment, which, having been ignored, redefined and abused by the political class, has recently been resurrected by the people, thanks in no small part to their association with the NRA. In the late 1970s, the idea that the U.S. Supreme Court would affirm the plain meaning of the Second Amendment was almost unthinkable, as was the resurgence of concealed carry and the repeal of illegal and counterproductive measures such as registries, waiting limits, one-gun-per-month rules and bans on commonly owned firearms. We have come a long, long way in a short period of time. But it could all go away in an instant. The Joe Biden/Kamala Harris agenda calls for the resuscitation of every single one of the measures that have been dismantled during the last 30 years—and more. If elected—and especially if gifted a pliant Democrat Congress—Biden and Harris would set about returning Americans to 1975. And this time they’re playing for keeps. The progress that has been made in the courts would be reversed. Biden’s record in the U.S. Senate shows that he opposes judges who interpret the U.S. Constitution as it is written in favor of judges who read their personal preferences into the text. Kamala Harris’ record in the U.S. Senate reveals identical instincts, and her record as attorney general of California confirms her to be a radical on the question. Not only did Harris side with the government in D.C. v. Heller (2008), she even joined an amicus brief that argued that a total ban on handguns was constitutionally permissible and that the Second Amendment does not protect an individual right. If Biden and Harris get their way, such fringe notions will become America’s highest law.  [full article]
