Dangerous Ruling Says WaPo

This stalwart of American civil liberties, the Washington Post maintains a myth that is perpetuated by the Brady Bunch, that the Second Amendment is in place to allow the government to arm itself. No kidding, "the right of the people," actually means the state governments. Dangerous Ruling regarding the US Appeals Court for DC Circuit actually states, " the unconscionable campaign, led by the National Rife Association and abetted by the Bush administration, to broadly reinterpret the Constitution so as to give individuals Second Amendment rights" was the prelude to "this radical ruling will inevitably mean more people killed and wounded as keeping guns out of the city becomes harder. Moreover, if the legal principles used in the decision are applied nationally, every gun control law on the books would be imperiled."

I'm sure that since the WaPo is a large corporate entity they have no fear of liberties like freedom of speech or freedom from unreasonable search and seizure not being applied to them. Surely large elite groups have those rights but not the smelly mob. People is a dangerous concept in liberty, they might get uppity and want the same rights as their betters. Worse yet, if they're armed they might demand them.

The court found that the Second Amendment protections "are not limited to militia service, nor is an individual's enjoyment of the right contingent upon his or continued intermittent enrollment in the militia." Oddly enough the Democratic Party of Oregon also says

NOW, THEREFORE, THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF OREGON RESOLVES AS FOLLOWS:

Section 1. To recognize and support the right to keep and bear arms in Article 1 Section 27 of the Oregon State Constitution and the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America as an individual right not granted by the government, but rather guaranteed by the government.

Section 2. In recognition of the tremendous personal responsibility engendered by the right to keep and bear arms, the Democratic Party of Oregon further advocates severe penalties and their enforcement for criminal use or misuse of the right.

If the acolytes of liberal bias media myth can't figure out that the DPO is a little more left than the WaPo and that we do not stand with the WaPo in this kind of nonsense, but rather stand with the citizens of the United States of America and their liberty then they pay no attention at all. By the way Republicans, why don't you go read your Party's statement? Indies, we're not kidding around, if this has been bothering you, read it again. The Gun Owners Caucus of the DPO has a blog, Blue Steel Democrats as a public forum. I don't think you'll find us exactly supportive of the WaPo's stance.

Greatful for link. I suppose Ginny Burdick will want to shut this web site down.
