Gutting the Bill of Rights, one Amendment at a time
Now that President Obama has abridged the First Amendment's free exercise of religion clause, it is natural to ask what's next.
What follows next in the Bill of Rights, the Founders' firewall against unlimited and despotic government, is the Second Amendment. And there can be no doubt that the "right of the people to keep and bear arms" is on Obama's short list for his second term.
The Washington Times quotes National Rifle Association (NRA) Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday:
LaPierre further observes that Obama could possibly appoint several more anti-gun Supreme Court justices during a second term, and could eviscerate the Second Amendment:
Writing in America's First Freedom, LaPierre recounts Obama's anti-gun history: "Make no mistake: Barack Obama has spent his entire political career engaged in a stealthy assault on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms"
La Pierre goes on to describe the anti-gun zealots who surround Obama, including Eric Holder, Cass Sunstein and Rahm Emanuel, not to mention his two Supreme Court appointments.
American Thinker, in fact, reported just yesterday that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel "is calling for state legislation that would require guns to be registered statewide."
If Mr. LaPierre sounds alarmist on the Second Amendment, look no further than the profoundly disturbing turn of events regarding the First Amendment:
The subjugation of religious freedom to the force of ObamaCare was entirely predictable, but is nonetheless stunning in the reality.
The American Spectator's George Neumayr, captures the "deformed heart" of ObamaCare:
And Neumayr deciphers the dangers of an Obama on a mission:
The President's assault on the Second Amendment is no less predictable, but with some 80 million gun owners in the United States will be all the more stunning in the reality.
The President said last fall "Where Congress won't act, I will."
Think he's kidding now?
