President Biden stunned constitutionalists Wednesday when he said the Second Amendment is not absolute.
While they clearly will not prevent every tragedy, we know certain ones will have significant impact and have no negative impact on the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment is not absolute. When it was passed, you couldn’t own a — you couldn’t own a cannon, you couldn’t own certain kinds of weapons. It’s just — there’s always been limitations.
But guess what? These actions we’ve taken before, they saved lives. And they can do it again.
The idea that an 18-year-old can walk into a store and buy weapons of war, designed and marketed to kill, is, I think, just wrong. It just violates common sense. Even the manufacturer — the inventor of that weapon thought that as well.
You know, where is the backbone? Where is the courage to stand up to a very powerful lobby?Washington Post
The Washington Post pointed out long ago that Biden’s claim about cannons is not true. They actually slapped the president with four Pinocchios.
“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,” that’s what the Second Amendment says.
Seems pretty absolute to me.
