When it comes to the Second Amendment, there is a massive misunderstanding being perpetuated here in the United States.
Those on the left, who abhor the idea that guns even exist, seem to believe that the Second Amendment is some sort of privilege that needs to be adjusted from time to time.
Those people are precisely incorrect, and their attempts to subvert the inalienable right to bear arms simply galvanizes the need for Amendment II even more. This is, simply, because the Second Amendment exists to protect itself, along with the rest of the Constitution, from governmental tampering.
By attempting to infringe upon the Second Amendment, states like Californian only make it that much more necessary, as they have become the exact reason for the Founding Fathers’ inclusion of the right to bear arms.
One judge in The Golden State actually gets it.
High-capacity gun magazines will remain legal in California under a ruling Friday by a federal judge who cited home invasions where a woman used the extra bullets in her weapon to kill an attacker while in two other cases women without additional ammunition ran out of bullets.
The adjudicator’s words were stern, to say the least.
“Individual liberty and freedom are not outmoded concepts,” San Diego-based U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez wrote as he declared unconstitutional the law that would have banned possessing any magazines holding more than 10 bullets.
California law has prohibited buying or selling such magazines since 2000, but those who had them before then were allowed to keep them.
It’s not often that we find ourselves applauding a decision by a judge in California, particularly on the subject of the Second Amendment, but it is time to give credit where credit is due.
We mustn’t ever forget that those who would infringe upon the right to bear arms are the very reason for its existence. Furthermore, no one living today has the intrinsic knowledge that was possessed by the Founding Fathers, and therefore have a lack of reference when speaking on the subject.
