A Kentucky state representative Kenny Imes (R-Murray) has brought in a bill to declare that President Obama’s gun control measures void in the state and they are effectively dead in the water in Kentucky.
According to HB 236:
Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution of the United States specifies the powers of the Congress of the United States. Those powers do not include impairing the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States or any other amendment to the Constitution of the United States that guarantees rights to the people or to a state;
Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution of the United States specifies the powers of the President of the United States. That section does not authorize the President of the United States to violate the Constitution of the United States or the amendments to the Constitution of the United States.
HB 236 then points to the 10th Amendment to show that all “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”
It’s clear what exactly the second amendment is and means. The right to bear arms is plain and simple. Introducing gun control measure impacts on our freedoms, our rights and is plain and simple unconstitutional. It’s absolutely crazy that Obama is even considering this and he must be stopped. Protest if you can and join the NRA to campaign against these blatantly ridiculous measures!
What are your thoughts on this matter?
