The Second Amendment: When Government Tries to Ration our Rights

Joe Biden

By Larry Keane

President-elect Joe Biden had a rare moment of clarity when it comes to gun control. He’s got a really big obstacle, called the Constitution.

The president-elect spoke with civil rights leaders in a virtual meeting. An unknown individual recorded the session and the media got a hold of it. What President-elect Biden admitted was enlightening.

“I am not going to violate the Constitution. Executive authority that my progressive friends talk about is way beyond the bounds…there is a Constitution,” President-elect Biden is heard telling the meeting attendees. “Our only hope and the way to deal with it is, where I have executive authority, I will use it to undo every single damn thing this guy [President Donald Trump] has done by executive authority, but I’m not going to exercise executive authority where it’s a question, where I can come along and say, ‘I can do away with assault weapons.’ There’s no executive authority to do away that.”

Not a King

Short answer: President-elect Biden knows he’s not a king. He can’t rule over subjects. He must govern his fellow citizens and the document that gives him that authority also limits him from unilaterally grabbing up rights from American citizens – also known as “the People.”

The American Republic was structured this way by the Founders for this very reason. The Executive Branch is charged with running the country, but its authority is checked by the Legislative Branch, or Congress. Its also checked by the Judicial Branch, which itself, is checked by the Executive Branch and Legislative Branch.

No single branch of the three pillars of government gets full sway. It’s called the Separation of Powers doctrine. The Founders built it this way so all three are accountable to “the People” who put them in a position to represent their interests and there are checks and balances on each branch of government.

That’s why President-elect Biden also lectured those on his virtual meeting to cool the heated “defund the police” rhetoric. It’s not helping his cause to win over the final two U.S. Senate seats, which would give him a unified Legislative Branch that’s aligned with the goals of the Executive Branch.

In other words, President-elect Biden was telling the civil rights leaders to slow their roll with vilifying cops, so they can get the final seats needed to flip the Senate. Then, they can ram through whatever legislation they want, including blowing up the filibuster, packing the U.S. Supreme Court and enacting unconstitutional gun control laws.

“I just raise it with you to think about how much do we push between now and January 5 – we need those two seats – about police reform. But I guarantee you, there will be a full-blown commission. I guarantee you it’s a major, major, major element,” President-elect Biden said.

That doesn’t mean an incoming administration is deferring out of respect for the U.S. Constitution. It is just the opposite. He is telling his supporters to lay low, bide their time and those gun control promises from the campaign trail will come if they can deliver U.S. Senate seats allied with their cause.

Gun control supporters are growing impatient. Antigun billionaire Michael Bloomberg’s gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety is demanding a “raft” of gun control immediately. They don’t care about the Constitution, protected rights or the legislative process.

Specifically, they want to criminalize private firearm transfers, regulate precursor firearm parts and funnel tax dollars into federal studies to back their claims for more gun control. They would have President-elect Biden use Executive Orders to force these changes without the consent of Congress. Just yesterday both President-elect Biden and vice-president-elect Harris called for Congress to pass “common sense” gun control.

Sounds Autocratic

One columnist, Bambi Majumdar, appearing on the website MultiBriefs, wrote that Biden-Harris administration gun control is “…not going to be a problem for law-abiding gun owners. The problem would only exist for troublemakers. Biden, a gun owner himself, supports a stricter interpretation of the Second Amendment. His focus isn’t banning all guns but assault weapons…”

Majumdar claims the gun confiscation plans presented on the campaign trail aren’t a problem because they only affect the owners of the 20 million-plus modern sporting rifles in circulation today, the most popular selling centerfire rifle that’s used daily for lawful purposes. President-elect Biden claimed to own two shotguns – a claim he made when he berated a union worker for questioning his Second Amendment commitments – but no one has seen them.

He  once advised people to buy a shotgun, and told his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, to “fire two blasts” if there’s a perceived threat. There are photos of him in a squirt gun battle with his grandchildren. There’s no proof, to our knowledge, he’s part of the gun-owning community.

Majumdar has other infringements both she and the president-elect think aren’t so problematic, including rationing gun sales, banning the manufacture, sale and import of standard capacity magazines, criminalizing private firearm sales and banning online ammunition and firearm sales, even though those firearm transfers must be completed in a face-to-face transaction with a proceed approval from the FBI. These are among the ideas that are being bantered about for executive action. That means gun control by edict.

Majumdar is wrong and she knows it. President-elect Biden knows these are radical overreaches of a Chief Executive who would be drafting these orders beyond the scope of his authority. Yet, that’s what he campaigned on. Americans, by his estimation, have too much freedom and need to be reined in. He told America he was the one to do it. Now, he’s expected to deliver.

When a leader acts alone without the consent of “the People,” it’s dictatorial. It’s despotic. It’s tyranny. Ironically, it is the entire reason the Second Amendment was protected by the Constitution. It was to protect the people when a leader ignored their rights.

    Biden may or may not respect the constitution, it’s a moot point! When and if he does reside in the oval office, it wont be for long. With comments like that, theyll make sure his tenure is even shorter.

      Dennis Sumner,

      With comments like that, theyll make sure his tenure is even shorter.

      Agree completely.

      The actual power brokers of the Democrat Party knew that they would have to steal the election and they knew that they would have to generate a boatload of fraudulent votes to do it. They also knew that the fraudulent election results would have to be passable enough to avoid a full-blown national melt-down. The only Democrat candidate who fit the bill was Biden which is why the Party power brokers ensured his nomination.
      Saying it another way, the Party power brokers knew that there was no way the masses would accept any of the fringe candidates legitimately winning the election.

      Thus, the Democrat Party put Biden forward. Of course he was just a vassal to ensure that the Democrat Party could secure the White House. Now that he has served his purpose, the Party will promptly cast him aside if he fails to advance the true tenants of the Party.

      1. avatar AR Libertarian says:

        Would you stop with that non-sense?

        The Democrats didn’t steal the election. If Trump hadn’t been such an asshole, he’d have won.

        His policies were supported by a lot of Americans, and unlike a politician, he thought he had to try to deliver on his campaign promises. But his ego keep overshadowing everything he did.

        There’s screw ups in every election, from dog catcher to president. That doesn’t mean there’s a conspiracy. You know why I know there’s no conspiracy? Because it would take too many people to pull it off.

          “Because it would take too many people to pull it off.”

          You’re intellect is on par with a steaming pile of dog shit.

        3. avatar Ing says:

          I’ve seen too many so-called conspiracy theories become daylight reality in the last few years to accept that at face value.

          As for the idea of election fraud and cheating in genereal, there’s coordinated fraud and uncoordinated, small-time cheating, and you can be guaranteed that both of them go on at some level somewhere in every election. When the stakes are high (and even when they aren’t), people will cheat; it’s human nature. Anybody who tells you no one could possibly be cheating is almost surely the worst cheater in the bunch.

          This time, literally everyone who had an opportunity on the Democrat side — and the opportunities were massive and begging to be taken — took theirs. “By any means necessary” was the message, and it was received loud and clear.

          Was it really enough to steal the presidential election? I lean toward yes…but…

          But unfortunately, we’re probably never going to know for sure, because CYA is another universal human tendency, and it’s in full force here. The judges and election officials who could have let investigations go forward or provided full transparency are more interested in maintaining the appearance of a perfect system than ensuring it has real integrity. They can’t let anyone pursue fraud allegations because it would make them look bad.

          In so doing, they’ve widened the cracks and undermined the entire foundation. And the rot continues to spread.

        4. avatar Miner49er says:

          Yes the rrot continues, especially when paid Republican operatives attempt to intimidate an election official and get the wrong guy.
          One of the main Republican techniques is indeed dirty politics, just like they did last year in North Carolina.

          And still no real fraud evidence, that’s weird.

          TX Lt. Governor Dan Patrick offered up to a million dollars to anyone with credible tips on voter fraud. That was Nov 10th, no takers yet. Funny that none of these hundreds of whistleblowers chose to take him up on his offer.

          The fraud is being perpetrated by armed and violent Republican operatives, who will be going to prison in the near future.

          “HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A former Houston Police Department Captain was arrested and charged for running a man off the road and pointing a gun at his head in an attempt to prove claims of a massive voter fraud scheme in Harris County, according to a news release from the Harris County’s DA’s office.

          Mark Anthony Aguirre, 63, was arrested by Houston police Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

          “He crossed the line from dirty politics to commission of a violent crime, and we are lucky no one was killed,” Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg said. “His alleged investigation was backward from the start – first alleging a crime had occurred and then trying to prove it happened.”

          According to court documents, Aguirre told police that he was part of a group of private citizens called the “Liberty Center,” who were conducting a civilian investigation into the alleged ballot scheme.

          According to Aguirre, he had been conducting surveillance for four days on a man who was allegedly the mastermind of a giant voter fraud scheme. Aguirre told authorities the man was hiding 750,000 fraudulent ballots in a truck he was driving.

          Instead, the victim turned out to be an innocent air conditioner repairman, court documents said.

          Aguirre ran his SUV into the back of the truck to get the technician to stop and get out, according to court documents.

          When the technician got out of the truck, Aguirre pointed a handgun at the technician, forced him to the ground and put his knee on the man’s back until police came, the court document said.

          Aguirre allegedly directed police to a parking lot nearby where another suspect, who has not been identified, took the truck.

          According to court documents, there were no ballots in the truck. The truck was filled with air conditioning parts and tools.“

          You don’t hire a street fighter to clean up the town, then refuse to pay because he lacks good manners. The only people I know who refuse truth because of how it is delivered are driven by emotion, and not to be trusted.

          BTW, yes, Trump is poorly mannered as a traditional politician, an honorable and good loser. Would anyone here, after 4 straight years of abuse, refuse to lash out, and call things as they are? Why do people demand of others what they will not countenance? Abuse me for 4yrs, and I will not dish up a cheese blintz response, either.

Individual Democrats have let small pieces slip into the open over the last couple of weeks, months, years and the MSM has complicity ignored any and all such accidental lapses of secrecy and policy as “nothing to see here…move along” (Hunter Biden’s criminality is just the most recent game piece exposed with almost zero reporting). Swalwell in bed with the Chinese…crickets chirping. Biden’s obvious mental impairment – those same darn crickets. Sooo many examples of malfeasance, lying and willful obstruction…

        Hunter Biden, oh yeah he’s guilty, but there is zero evidence to support any charge against him…

        Even Attorney General Bill Barr says no need to investigate hunter, no evidence of crimes.

        Oh no, wait a minute, Trump’s attorney general is part of the conspiracy as well!

        Quick, call Sidney Powell and tell her to release the Kraken!

        Just sayin’, I don’t know about that…. I only bought one complete AR …I built the rest from stripped lowers. I doubt that these are counted in gun sales. After you finish swapping out triggers, forends, barrels, charging handle, furniture, etc., you might as well just build the damned thing to begin with. It’s cheaper. Likely, many of us never bought more than one complete AR.
        As for 80%’s, I have no reason to own a gun without a S/N. I have the machine tools but, not the time. And, if I ever had the urge to sell one (not likely), you can’t. There may be a day when you can’t even will it to your kids!
        I think the gun sales statistics are a ridiculously LOW estimate of the number of AR’s in existence.

          BTW, On a rather uncomfortable drive out to the farm, I tried to explain to my wife that these “military” weapons of war that fired 1000 rounds/sec. of baby seeking, exploding 50cal. bullets with “the shoulder thing that goes up” were just like her 9mm …they only fire one little bitty .22 cal. bullet with each pull of the trigger. She wasn’t buying it…. insisted they should be banned and confiscated. I had to have my cousin talk her into trying it.
          It wasn’t until 90 rounds later (with a big smile on her face) that I told her that it was HER gun, the only complete AR I ever bought.
          That’s TWO American citizens with AR’s that only count as 1 gun sold.

          If it ever occurs that you cannot sell a rifle without a S/N, buy a hammer and a set of number punches and give it a S/N. What’s the problem? Pretty sure all my guns have S/Ns, but nobody knows what they are, why would I care? Your problems are not the numbers, they are the REGISTRY!

      Thank you JWM for stating what should be obvious.

      And to emphasize how accurate your point is, Democrats will control both the federal Justice Department and the United States House of Representatives. Thus Democrat President Biden (and any Democrat successor) can and will order the Justice Department to NOT investigate/prosecute election fraud — or anything else for that matter which would hurt Democrat objectives. And because Democrats control the U.S. House of Representatives, they will NEVER issue articles of impeachment against the Democrat President of the United States for ordering the federal Justice Department to quash any investigations/prosecutions of Democrats.

      And we haven’t even considered the nefarious possibilities if Democrats win in Georgia and take back the U.S. Senate.

      Our nation will experience very dark times indeed.

    Biden’s “supporters” know full well that violations of the Constitution take years to be resolved in courts, and time shores up the usurpation.

    1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

      Sam I Am,

      [Biden] could have just ended his presidency before it began.

      Shortly after the election, I predicted that Biden will be out within a few months and Harris will take over. (Whether Biden resigns for “health reasons” or Democrats force him out via the 25th Amendment I have no idea.) I further predicted that Harris will actually remain somewhat low-key until the 2024 election to ensure her second term. And make no mistake, she will win a second term — quite likely without fraud because millions of women will feel obligated to vote the first women into the Office of President of the United States in order to “break the glass ceiling”.

      And this, I believe, has been the Democrat plan all along. They know that no one — not even Donald J. Trump Sr., can beat a sitting President Harris (who was low-key during her partial first term) campaigning for a second term. That is the key to ensuring her reelection. Once she is reelected, then Democrats will go full-blown far Left and implement everything on their wish lists — including ending the cloture (filibuster) rule in the U.S. Senate, adding several Justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, and granting statehood to the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. At that point Democrats will be unbeatable and Republicans will never again win the Presidency or have a majority in the United States Senate, House of Representatives, or Supreme Court.

          Two years and a day. If SloJoe doesn’t make it that far, the Ho would finish out more than half of his term, and that would count as a full term for her — thus, she only gets one more term.

        I don’t know. She did very poorly during the primaries — just OK out the gates, but fizzled fast. The voters, even in her own party, just don’t like her. She won’t take a solid stand on anything and she’s got the personality of a rattlesnake. Maybe a couple of years with SloJoe will season her out, who knows? But, if I was a betting man — and I am — I wouldn’t put anything down on the Ho at any odds.

          I would say it would be a racial slur if I had, like the conservative radio host, called him a “nappy headed ho” but that’s the sort of thing that the conservatives do, I generally refrain from such language.

          FormerParaTrooper,

          Excellent — thank you for the clarification.

          As others pointed out, that means Harris could be President of the United States for 10 years (minus one or two days to satisfy the 22nd Amendment).

          Given that new information, I am changing my previous prediction. Democrats will do everything possible to keep Biden as President long enough to satisfy the 22nd Amendment requirement which allows Harris to be President for 10 years (minus one or two days). That has the added advantage of potentially helping Democrats shore up their majority in the U.S. House of Representatives and potentially even obtain a majority in the U.S. Senate in the 2022 midterm election if Democrats keep a relatively low profile.

          Once past the 2022 midterm elections, then Democrats can go full-blown far Left.

        2. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “Democrats will do everything possible to keep Biden as President long enough to satisfy the 22nd Amendment requirement which allows Harris to be President for 10 years…”

          Kamala (Kam-ala, Kamla, Kammy, whatever) already announced her plans for “the Harris administration with the help of Joe Biden.” Putting my money on the inability of leftists, socialists, authoritarians, dictators to restrain themselves, and getting power as quickly as possible.

          Obama was half-and-half (black and white), Harris is more dangerous…full brown who will be the first “African American” woman to be president. Imagine the revenge for dissing her (calling her AA will be the major bone thrown to BLM, etc).

    That’s a smoke screen at best. Respecting the Constitution means all of it, not the part that defines your job as President.

    Having respect includes the Supremecy clause which states the Constitution and laws passed in agreement with it is the supreme law of the land and JUDGES are bound by it.

    Add in the Second Amendment’s limit on the government to not even commit minor infractions along with the 4th and 14th amendment, an honest President would say the only thing they can do would be to promote community level gun safety and responsibility training, especially in regards to child in a home with firearms. Advanced militia or self defense training could be promoted as well as work with states to remove gangs from the country. Constitutional training for all police at every level of government could be promoted. Noticed I said promoted. The bully pulpit can be used to encourage or persuade these activities, not enforce or fund it.

    But the federal government is highly restricted as to what it may do, and even more restricted in what it may not do. We have allowed the shift of money and power to Washington D.C. whereas the 9th and 10th amendments should be enforced by the states often and without let up as it was the people who made the states and the states made the federal government. All government is here to serve the general well being of citizens, which includes being secure in the exercise of their rights.

    Or as the Bible puts it, government is to bear the sword against evil and to promote the good of good citizens. Being able to live life freely without fear of ourselves, our freedoms or our pocketbooks being molested is the highest good I can think of. Government that punishes the good citizens is in rebellion to the Creator from which we claim our rights come from. Fortunately our form of government derives its power and authority from the citizens and we have the right to set our government right, but that takes effort on our part.

    There are some indications that a severe cognitive deficit underlies many of the more acute symptoms.

    “A former police captain who was part of a private citizens group investigating still unsubstantiated 2020 election fraud claims was charged Tuesday with running a man off the road and pointing a gun to his head two weeks before the election, the Harris County district attorney said in a statement.

    Prosecutors say former Houston Police captain Mark Anthony Aguirre said he believed the man was transporting fraudulent ballots.
    “I believe it’s a political prosecution,” Terry Yates, Aguirre’s attorney, told CNN affiliate KTRK.
    Prosecutors say Aguirre was paid over a quarter million dollars by a private group called “Liberty Center for God and Country” to investigate alleged ballot schemes in the Houston area.
    Jared Woodfill, the center’s president, told CNN the group and Republican activist Steve Hotze hired a private firm that included “Aguirre, a former FBI investigator and about 20 investigators that investigated reports of voter fraud,” reports that were sent to Hotze. The Republican activist was also one of the plaintiffs who filed a petition prior to Election Day seeking to invalidate 127,000 ballots cast in drive-thru early voting. A federal judge rejected that request.“

    Even so, 49er, and so many lost buffoons on the left will always believe Biden won ‘fair and square’. MAGA folks will always know the election was rigged/stolen.

    It’s similar to when JFK was assassinated. All knew that the course of history, the future, had changed that day. So Vietnam and LBJ’S disastrous time as POTUS came. It’s so much worse this time with puppet/fool Biden to come with crazy/radical lefty Kamala to follow. The rise of China, and wars in the future are assured. This ain’t no TDS infection thing.
