The Constitution is an imperfect document that has required revision from time to time. Our Founding Fathers, in their infinite wisdom, understood that our world was likely to change and would require amendments to the document that serves as the codified law that emphasized the need for a restraint of government.
Though the document has changed over time and will likely change some more before this author moves to the other side of the grass, it remains remarkably clear on some key areas of liberty.
The First Articles of the Constitution are outlines for the three branches of government and their respective powers. The Legislative Branch creates laws, the Judicial Branch interprets them and ensures constitutional compatibility and the Executive, as the name suggests, executes the will of the law-making body and the Judicial Branch (in addition to serving as the Head of State on the international stage.)
This magnificent setup was not an accident; the Founders intended a system of checks and balances.
However, this system has been thoroughly disregarded by a dictatorial regime that remains engaged in an adversarial relationship with the people of the United States- the true rulers of this government.
President Obama is readying his executive actions to curtail the Second Amendment and these edicts are expected any day now. PolitiStick has previously reported that the unconstitutional edicts will likely center on expanding background checks to include private sales (thereby making them not private sales).
Obama has met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch to discuss how he will implement his orders and as Second Amendment groups warn the president to not go through with the tyrannical move, Obama pledged that his executive orders will be “entirely consistent” with the Constitution.
However, any such orders designed to serve as laws that emanate from the Oval Office is, by its very nature, unconstitutional.
Obama claimed, “I’m also confident that the recommendations that are being made by my team here are ones that are entirely consistent with the Second Amendment and people’s lawful right to bear arms.”
The senator-turned-president-turned-emperor also pounced-upon national grief concerning gun violence and claimed that his orders could “potentially save lives in this country” and “spare families the pain and the extraordinary loss that they’ve suffered.”
Of course, the catalysts for these new orders have been the recent slate of mass shootings that have occurred with legally-owned firearms. These shootings cannot and would not have been stopped by any expansion of background checks as recent tragedies like that seen in Roseburg, Oregon, were perpetrated by maniacs who obtained their weapons via a background check.
Other tragedies, like the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre, were conducted with weapons that were obtained illegally. Adam Lanza, the Sandy Hook shooter, attempted to purchase a firearm, but was denied by a background check. Instead, he killed his mother and stole her firearm, a series of events that could not have been stopped by expanded background checks.
