(Created 1/13/19. Last Update 4/6/19)
The constitutional waters of jurisdiction over the 2nd amendment have been muddied by the guarantee of state sovereignty. Many lives of law abiding citizens have been destroyed by the stroke of a pen solely by the progressive agenda of certain states.
The fundamental disparity in the gun rights debate can be found in 2 simple phrases of the 2nd Amendment according to an article by the Cornell Law School, "the right of the people to keep and bear arms' vs "a well regulated Militia." This debate of individual rights vs well regulated has been politicized by progressives to gain control of their state populous and hand over control and power to the state.
The probability of door to door confiscation is so problematic for gun grabbers, their focus will be on soft forms of confiscation until the general public has become complacent to restrictions on their natural and God given rights.
Currently the senate and the administration are mostly pro 2nd Amendment and with the house of representatives now in the hands of ant-liberty and anti-gun politicians, no state is safe.
Unfortunately, we are seeing our traditionally red state turning blue with republicans siding with gun-control bills, and propaganda phrases like "moderate bipartisan gun control measures."
Who would have thought that Florida and Texas would have ever supported any gun control bills? No person or state is safe from the gun grabbers, especially when gun owners don't vote.
