The Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that the Second Amendment is, indeed, constitutional. For some of us that was an obvious no-brainer. But grasping the obvious has always been hard for liberals, especially when it goes contrary to their agenda.
So, while constitutionalists around the country do the Happy Dance, I’m stuck pondering this question, “Does this mean that when the Democrats grant amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens in this country, those aliens-turned-citizens will have the right to bear arms?” The answer is, “Yes. If we uphold our Constitution, it does.” So, while the Court’s decision is good news constitutionally, it does serve as a sobering reminder of what we face if Obama’s “Get Out the Vote” campaign called Amnesty is successful.
For all practical purposes, nothing has changed. The court only upheld what we all (sans liberals) already knew-Americans have the right to keep and bear arms. But, once amnesty is passed (deemed, shoved through, imposed in the dark of night) the rights that legitimate Americans have fought for and died to protect will be awarded to illegal aliens who, from the looks of it, really just want the freebies.
Aside from being here illegally (and, really, isn’t that reason enough?), I have a couple other areas of concern.
For starters, there are those among the illegal alien crowd in this country who have no problem flaunting their illegal-but-entitled status. From protest marches and burning the American flag to mailing bricks to congressmen and defacing public property, this crowd has invaded our country with one hand out and the other hand brandishing the driving finger. This isn’t exactly how industrious, grateful people conduct themselves. In fact, it is tantamount to breaking into my basement window and then protesting about not having any clean towels. So, while the Supreme Court’s ruling is good news for American citizens, the thought of these disgruntled illegal-potentially legal aliens having the “right” to keep and bear arms makes my blood run cold.
And, for grins, let’s not forget that there are more than a few illegal aliens who are members of the Mexican drug cartel. The Second Amendment will apply to them as well. Nothing says constitutional like a Mexican drug lord having the right to bear arms.
I’m not saying the Second Amendment’s slim victory Thursday was a bad thing. I am saying, however, that the Second Amendment is for legitimate American citizens only.
