This truth is not lost on anyone noting Obama’s radical record and the efforts his regime have made in the last 7 years restricting and harming inalienable rights.
The reason there is such fear among so many Americans over the sudden death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, is the very real threat that we now face under the color of law upon what remains of our liberties.
By now, you have no doubt heard that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away on Saturday.
His pro-gun leadership on the Court will be sorely missed.
But we are now in the fight for our lives, as President Obama will try to nominate a replacement to change the balance of the Court.
When ABC’s George Stephanopoulos quizzed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz over Scalia’s replacement, the Senator suggested that our Second Amendment rights are “hanging in the balance.”
Cruz is right.
No one should fail to understand what is at stake in Barack Obama’s scramble to appoint the “swing vote” on the Supreme Court.
If Obama appoints a replacement for Justice Antonin Scalia, the reconstituted court will declare the Second Amendment dead.
Those of us who are constitutionalists know that Obama and the Court can’t really obliterate the 2nd Amendment. The Constitution trumps any unlawful action to the contrary.
But a change in the Court — with the anti-gun decisions that follow — will give the “green light” for all kinds of gun registration and gun bans, resulting in a chilling effect on the exercise of our gun rights.
Heller, the 5-4 decision which recognized the Second Amendment as an individual right, will be reversed.
McDonald, the 5-4 decision which recognized that the Second Amendment applies to the states, will be reversed.
Even sooner, the court will recognize Obama’s illegal efforts to grant amnesty to 5+ million anti-gun voters.
And the consequence will be that the entire U.S. government will soon be the same gun-hating “utopia” which California’s government became as a result of a 1986 amnesty bill.
The Leftist media has already begun their White House-coordinated campaign to bludgeon Senate Republicans into approving Obama’s efforts to pack the Supreme Court with a “jurist” who will repeal the Second Amendment — and achieve Obama’s life-long dream.
But all of their arguments are, transparently, lies and false propaganda.
FIRST: Everyone knows that the Obama appointment would result in the reversal of Heller — and the effective repeal of the Second Amendment — at least, as recognized by a corrupt court system.
SECOND: Obama’s ultimate nominee will lie.
He or she will say that they have no opinion on the Second Amendment. And they will talk about legal doctrines like stare decisis — which supposedly gives a presumption to retaining “settled law.”
Justice Sonia Sotomayor also swore, under oath, that she had no preconceived opinions on the Second Amendment. But as soon as she got her lifetime appointment, she couldn’t move fast enough to call for the Second Amendment’s repeal.
If there is one thing we have learned from Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and the gaggle of Obama lower court appointees, it is this: They will say whatever needs to be said to get on the Court, but they will run fast and hard to the Far Left once they are confirmed.
THIRD: There is no constitutional principle which requires the Senate to approve a lawless nominee.
Besides, Obama has had no problem using the Constitution and the laws as toilet paper.
So he is the last one to lecture others on their “constitutional obligations” — particularly when the goal is to confirm lawless jurists who would rubber-stamp Obama’s unconstitutional and lawless actions…

I would note that is EXACTLY the reason Obama appointed Elena Kagan to SCOTUS – to ensure ObamaCare was protected and for the express and sole purpose of imposing Obama’s agenda while on the High Court.
That Obama will appoint another Communist/Maoist/Socialist to the Bench is as certain as the sun coming up tomorrow. When the Senate gives into Obama as they have on every occasion, they will rule that your right to self defense and arms is a government privilege that can be restricted, banned, regulated and abolished. Mark my words.
You simply need to remember that your rights are inalienable. They come from God and His Court. No matter what the court rules, no matter what this tyrannical government dictates or what legislation is passed in the middle of the night – it is your duty to ignore whatever tyrannical impositions they dictate under the color of “law”.
