So much for that line about Dems being the great defenders of the Constitution. Every time you turn around we’re seeing them invent new ways to chip away at the protections it affords us.
Since the Constitution was written to put a leash on the limits of governmental power, it should surprise exactly nobody that the party chipping away at those constraints is the same one that idealizes a centralized all-powerful government.
They are now trying to stop the bleeding of public opinion by changing the channel from pressing concerns like $5 gas, inflation, or a debate about whether we’re on the precipice of sliding into a depression or a recession to talk about just how e-e-e-e-evil they believe gun owners are.
They know what’s best for us and want to force it down our throats one way or another. What these Democrats really want is a party of elected oathbreakers to rise up and take power that hasn’t been vested in them by the Constitution.
They dream of abolishing the Second Amendment. Well-connected Democrat insiders are openly calling for it now.
Longtime liberal radio host Bill Press wrote an op-ed Thursday calling for the Second Amendment to be outright repealed.
“The only effective way to deal with the Second Amendment is to repeal it — and then replace it with something that makes sense in a civilized society,” Press wrote for CNN in an article titled “There’s no way to fix the Second Amendment. Let’s just get rid of it.”
“I’m hardly the first person to say that the Second Amendment has been a disaster for this country. In fact, two Supreme Court justices — justices appointed by Republican presidents — have said as much,” he added. —FoxNews
Is this some random crank? Some political outsider with some outlandish opinions? Nope. He’s about as much of an insider as you can get on the political left.
Some examples from his bio:
– served as an aide to California Governor Jerry Brown
– Chair of the California Democratic Party from 1993 to 1996
– former co-host of MSNBC’s Buchanan and Press, CNN’s Crossfire and The Spin Room
– author of ten books (all on political topics, including ‘Bush Must Go!’ and ‘Trump Must Go’)
– member of the White House press corps
Even his name is the perfect metaphor for the blurring of lines between the media and left-wing politics.
What can we tell from the fact that someone as knowledgeable about the inner workings of the political left as this guy is has been calling for an Abolishing of the Second Amendment itself?
They are becoming impatient of achieving their political goals and tired of playing within our system of checks and balances.
They are tired of letting the political process play out, tired of representative government spinning its wheels, and tired of waiting for policy debate to move forward with solutions that have broad enough support of American citizens that they will be adopted.
They have decided that they are our betters and they will force-feed us the medicine they think the country needs — whether you like it or not.
We even have an elected Democrat, Rep. Mondaire Jones, who has explicitly said that he doesn’t care WHAT check and balance he has to buldoze over to get this result. GUN CONTROL: Democrats Aren’t Even PRETENDING To Care About The Constitution
Forget the fact that America wouldn’t even have become a country had it not been for gun owners’ role in overthrowing the old regime, or that firearms (now called ‘weapons of war’) were explicitly part of the calculus of preventing a centralized federal government from running roughshod over the states.
These oathbreaker Democrats don’t have much use for the Constitution as it was written.
Yet somehow, they pretend to be its greatest defenders.
The purpose of the Second Amendment is to give our government a healthy fear of exceeding its lawful powers.
That same government is now using fear to as a lever to get what they want. What do they want? They want us to give up the one thing that keeps their ambitions in check.

Beginning in March 2020, many Christians went into lockdown-freak-out mode.
They “socially distanced” themselves from corporate worship and from pretty much everyone and everything else, except, of course, liquor, and grocery stores.
Uncut, irrational, unbiblical, and not to mention, unconstitutional, fear gripped many churches and church leaders.
Should pastors publicly repent if they obeyed Fauci in regard to how they conducted their ministry instead of adhering to the clear commands of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords?
That’s a legit question, eh?
Get your copy of Dear Christian: Your Fear Is Full of Crap now. Better yet, grab an extra copy for any petrified pastor who dutifully put obedience to the unconstitutional edicts of Mayor McCheese ahead of obedience to the explicit commandments of the LORD God Almighty.
