JEFF POOR
6 Sep 2019


Thursday during an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN, Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) argued that although House Democrats will likely pass a number of gun control bills that will not make it through the U.S. Senate, the long-term strategy was to get at the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms.

Brooks told “The Jeff Poor Show” it was an incremental process Democrats are using to erode support for the right to bear arms.

“The Democrats, Nancy Pelosi — they believe they have a winning issue here,” Brooks said. “So they’re going to force vote after vote om ultimately repealing the Second Amendment right to bear arms. Now, they’re smart enough not to do it all at once. What they will do is attack the right to bear arms incrementally until such time that the number of people who own arms and who believe in the Second Amendment right of self-defense — they will be in a minority and at that point, you can expect that the Democrats will move for an outright repeal of the Second Amendment.”

“Now, that’s a gradual thing,” he continued. “It’s not going to happen overnight. In my judgment, it won’t happen this year or next year, four or five or six years from now. But the long-term strategy of the Democratic Party is to eliminate the Second Amendment right to bear arms. And the way that they do that is by eroding the support for the Second Amendment right to bear arms a little bit at a time in their minds, at least, a majority of the American people are opposed to the Second Amendment.”

No surprise. It is all about power. The 2A stands in their way. Look at what has happened throughout history when gun confiscation was implemented. The outcome was not good.

They will have to pry them from my hands. I won’t be giving any of my firearms up EVER!

Get out and vote! These leftists cannot be trusted with anything.

It's not the 2nd Amendment that stands in their way; it's our right to keep and bear arms that stands in their way.

For some unknown, insane reason, the Democratic Party believes that if they eliminate the Second Amendment, that we will either voluntary turn in our firearms, or they will command the military/law enforcement community to take our guns and America will then be gun-free.

I tend to believe that, if the Democratic Party eliminates the Second Amendment, that those of us who believe in a free nation will rise up and eliminate the Democratic Party.

The DEMOCRATS have always relied on the "oppositions" (that's Us!) tendency to abide by our laws. be compliant and supportive to the civil contracts and above all, not act like DEMOCRAT scum. Given the GOP candidates observance of the Marquis of Queensbury rules in campaigns (I give you McCain and Romney as examples), why would the DEMOCRATS not assume that we would voluntarily submit to a "New Constitution" that no longer contains the "Right to Keep and Bear Arms"?

I personally would relish bringing quite a few of those Mooks to a "Woke" state of reality. Especially "Beto" and that little mayor "Mary Pete".

The Constitution doesn't contain the right to keep and bear arms today. It forbids government from infringing on a right that exists with or without the Constitution. They'd have to get rid of the 2nd, the 9th, and the 10th - and, in fact, the entire Constitution, in order to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms.

The only thing that the government can do is to enact a penalty or threat of a penalty for exercising your rights. But since they don't have that authority, they're not actually doing it as government but, instead, as tyrants. Here's John Locke's definition of tyranny from 1690:

As usurpation is the exercise of power which another hath a right to, so
tyranny is the exercise of power beyond right, which nobody can have a right to;
and this is making use of the power any one has in his hands, not for the good
of those who are under it, but for his own private, separate advantage. When the
governor, however entitled, makes not the law, but his will, the rule, and his
commands and actions are not directed to the preservation of the properties of
his people, but the satisfaction of his own ambition, revenge, covetousness, or
any other irregular passion.”
Among the Founders, a similar thing was said, that exceeding the powers granted in the Constitution constitutes tyranny. I can't find the quote I'm looking for but Locke's says it well enough. The government simply has no authority to infringe on the right to keep and bear arms, 2nd Amendment or not.

The Republicans would do what? How do you make up a statement with zero supporting commentary or documentation and use that to define Republicans as totalitarian government?

I'm no fan of Republicans but, as bad as they are, they're far more gun and liberty friendly than the best of the Democrats.

There are four issues that have me voting solely for Republicans......guns, abortion, taxes, and immigration. The left is trying to sell manure to a cattle rancher.

Like our friend Popeye says:

"The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet."

Socialist DemocRATS call themselves "Socialist" because they still do not have our weapons, but, they sure are trying to force us to give them up.

I’ll add to that judges and SCOTUS, regulations and the green energy nonsense.

Among that list, the Republicans are very weak in them all but, from reading from left to right, they get weaker from one issue to the next.

The politicians / government treat us like they do now with having firearms and the Second Amendment. Now imagine if they took them away, repealed the Second Amendment, and we don't have firearms.
