George Washington called the troops together at Valley Forge to tell them he had good news and bad news. First the good news. Today you all get a change of underwear. The bad news, Smith, you change with Jones, Davis, you change with Evans, etc.
That’s the message today with this column. I have both good news and bad news. First the good news. The Supreme Court had held, in a five to four split, that the second amendment to the Constitution is in fact valid and we the people of this great country have the right to keep and bear arms. But Ron, what on earth could be bad news after that, you ask? The bad news is that on our Supreme Court we have four individuals who cannot read. Either they cannot read or they are just plain, complete idiots. There is no way that any person with an ounce of sense and judgment could find any other way but to agree with the majority opinion in this case. The language of the second amendment is crystal clear and unambiguous. The authors of this amendment meant it and clearly laid out the fact that Americans have the right to arm themselves.
There are many reasons for this right to be a part of our Constitution but I will not use this column to go into them. This column has another purpose. That purpose is to once again point out the importance of elections.
With this decision by the Court, we came within one vote of the destruction of the Constitution of the United States of America. That’s right, one vote. So you don’t think who is elected to the Congress or the White House is important? This should for now and forevermore clearly prove that importance.
The Mayor of Chicago has decided that they will just re-write their ordinance to further challenge this Court decision. People like Daley just don’t get it. Gun control laws do nothing to prevent bad guys from getting guns. They only make their good citizens vulnerable. Here’s the rule. The only way to stop a gun is with a gun. If the thugs and gang bangers in Chicago had to face armed citizens they may well be a bit more cautious. The Daleys and the Bloombergs of this country will probably never get it. They are just political animals who play on the sympathy of what they believe to be their base with no regard to the Constitutional rights of all the citizens. To hell with the Constitution, let’s just put into place “feel good” legislation that will guarantee my re-election.
I am issuing a challenge to all of you who read this. Let us get rid of these morons who would re-arrange the laws of this country to suit themselves. A five to four decision is just too close for comfort. Sure, America won this one but what is going to happen the next time? How long will it take for another group of so-called do-gooders to bring another lawsuit? Will this country be fortunate enough to have in place a Supreme Court that is composed of true Americans or will it be packed with political animals from the left hell-bent on destroying this country and our Constitution? As for me, I don’t want to be around for that.
I hope you will take to heart this message and spread the word that we came within an inch of Constitutional destruction. Next time we may not be so lucky. In the meantime, keep your powder dry. Oh, and keep an extra set of underwear nearby. You never know.
