Bill Whittle nails it shut with this observation:
“After the second amendment goes, the first will soon follow. Because if some social engineering genius determines that real people can’t be trusted with dangerous guns, then it’s just a matter of time until they decide they can’t be trusted with dangerous ideas either.”
We The People are the sovereign authority.
Imagine for a moment what would happen if we were ruled by an old school absolute monarch. And now imagine what would happen if the senior senator from New York were to demand that the sovereign surrender his sword to the police.
Schumer would lose his head, to the headsman.
Why can’t we exercise some old school sovereign authority?
