Former Supreme Court Justice advocates changing Six Amendments in the Bill of Rights – including the Second Amendment in new book.
As with all MarxoFascists (i.e.: liberals, progressives, Democrats et al.) there is consensus among their arguments that the Constitution is flawed because it restricts government’s power over the people and the states, and focuses too much on individual rather than ‘collective’ rights. In other words, it’s not Communist enough for them.
While we would normally laugh off the insanity coming from screwball MarxoFascists like you would find on MSNBC – the reality is that such ideologues hold the highest positions of power in our nation. As such – the advancement of their total transformation agenda of a Republic into a Communist State is the only focus and goal.
One such ideologue is former so-called Republican and Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens, who revealed his platform to commit treason in a new ‘manifesto’ he is hawking “Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution“.
One such Amendment he advocates changing is the Second Amendment. His proposed treason is to change the text of the Second Amendment so that it reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.”
Essentially what Stevens is advocating is that ONLY those serving in the military should have a right to arms. Notwithstanding the history of every single genocidal regime ever come to power in mankind’s history, limits weapons to be in the hands of the military, loyal to it’s leader. That is a history Stevens and his MarxoFascist traitors never seem to note.
The Constitution explicitly states “the right of the people”, to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. It says NOTHING about WHEN they are ‘allowed’ to keep and bear arms as Stevens’ proposal demands.
But even in regards to the MarxoFascist argument that only the militia should have arms, let us look at who the Founding Fathers considered the militia. George Mason, called the ‘Father’ of the Constitution, wrote this:
“I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except
for a few public officials.” — George Mason, in Debates in Virginia
Convention on Ratification of the Constitution
But in the world of the MarxoFascists and the tyrants they seek to empower – ‘the militia’ is the National Guard or the military – under the direct authority of the President to command.
A people stripped of arms are much easier to subjugate and eradicate by a tyrannical regime such as the one in power right now. Our arms are the only thing that is preventing what is going on in Venezuela fro happening here.
Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens has released a new book focused, in part, on “improving” the Constitution through amending the Second Amendment–by making the rights protected therein applicable only to a militia instead of the citizenry at large.
Stevens’ book is titled Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution.
As written, the text of the Second Amendment is: “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.”
According to Bloomberg Businessweek, Stevens believes recent court decisions–notablyDistrict of Columbia v Heller (2008) and McDonald v Chicago (2010)–placed too much emphasis on individual rights, rather than on what he believes was the Founding Fathers’ primary goal: namely, to answer “the threat that a national standing army posed to the sovereignty of the states.”
His solution is to amend the text of the Second Amendment so that it reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms when serving in the militia shall not be infringed.”
In other words, the protection of the right becomes collective and is only protected for those serving in the militia.
Among the many problems with Stevens’ idea is the often overlooked fact that the Second Amendment did not create a right when it was ratified in 1791. Rather, the Founding Fathers created the Second Amendment to protect a portion of the “certain unalienable Rights” with which man was “endowed by [his] Creator.”
The rights protected by the Second Amendment are individual rights, as are the rights that are protected, but not created, by the First, Third, Fourth, and Fifth Amendments, among others.
