That buzzing sound you hear…

January 17, 2009

…is the Founding Fathers spinning in their graves.

Compare this elegant, straightforward statement of the rights of the people of the United States:

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.

With this obscenity:

Blair Holt’s Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009

One hopes it won’t pass, or will be immediately recognized as the Unconstitutional piece of dreck it is, but one shouldn’t necessarily take any chances since it would not be surprising if the new president almost immediately had two Supreme Court slots to fill (Darth Vader Ginsburg is in poor health and Justice Stevens is quite elderly). This would not change the makeup of the Court, as Mr. Obama would replace two liberals with two liberals, but it’s still not super news.

Three days until the new president can close the gun show loophole or introduce a myriad of restrictions on 2nd Amendment rights via Executive Order. If you are of a mind to do so, make any last-minute purchases NOW. Pay with cash.

This comes after the NRA decided to roll over and not fight Eric Holder, who is opposed to the 2nd Amendment rights of the people, as Attorney General.

I’m not one of those “We are so screwed” people, but…we are so screwed. 😦
