Obama 2008: Government Can 'Constrain' Right To Bear Arms--The Constitution Says Otherwise!

Obama 2008: Government Can 'Constrain' Right To Bear Arms--The Constitution Says Otherwise! | Gov't and Law |
“I believe that the Constitution confers an individual right to bear arms.

The Constitution says no such thing and  is quite clear in the 2nd amendment stating that:  A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

There is nowhere that says our right to keep and bear arms can be constrained, but it does say "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED''. 

While most law abiding gun owners are willing to have a background check when they purchase a weapon from a gun dealer, and most believe in keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill or known felons, there is no other reason to regulate gun ownership. Yet there are over 20000 gun laws and regulations, one of which already keeps military weapons out of civilian hands, but no matter how many passed will stop a criminal who cares nothing for the rule of law from breaking the law, buying guns on the black market or stealing them. This is why we must have the individual right to bear arms and to protect ourselves, in addition to defending against tyranny.

In addition,criminals, such as the drug cartel have military grade weapons they traffic into the US to protect their drugs and one another, why should US citizens be required to give up their weapons and reduce the number of shots they have to defend themselves against a criminal with a military assault weapon like the cartel??

If there are any true oath keepers in positions of power, this would be a perfect time to arrest those who vote against this amendment. Their treason to the Constitution couldn't be any clearer.

I find it hard to believe that the government can make laws that are in direct violation of our Constitution!

This is really interesting, but I do not think that this will become a law. This law violate your privacy and when this become a law it does not even make sense. What should the school do with the knowledge that someone own a gun?

This video talkes about a propsal to the missouri senator and says, "every kids parents in the elemetary schools will have to sign a waver saying they own guns in there house". What i thought was funny was that the senator claims that the constitusion does state the right to your privacy. This video is interesting and talks alot about gun control.

And this bill solves the violence issue how? Say I'm a troubled student with mild anger issues and a rough family life; how would the school's knowledge of my gun ownership prevent me from doing something violent? They can't treat me differently or limit what I do; all they can possibly do is worry about all of the "problem kids" who legally own guns and use them in a safe manner. All they can do is freak out over what MIGHT happen. All this bill will do is lead to schools jumping to false conclusions. Not to mention the fact that in our geographic region, a lot of students (and their parents) own guns. How difficult would it be to enforce this rule, especially that school staff never see the firearms?
