    Default Law Professor Wants to Repeal Second Amendment

    http://www.gunnews.com/law-professor...ond-amendment/





    Texas A&M University Law Professor Mary Margaret Penrose, another ignorant leftist, proposed repealing and replacing the 2nd Amendment during a symposium on gun violence at the University of Connecticut School of Law on Friday. She is proving to the world that one who has a law degree is not always smart.

    Penrose proclaimed to those in attendance that she teaches radical philosophies about the constitution saying, “Why do we keep such an allegiance to a constitution that was driven by 18th Century concerns? How many of you recognize that the main concern of the 18th Century was a standing army? That’s what motivated the Second Amendment–Fear of a standing army.”

    Penrose should demand an immediate refund of her law school tuition if this is what she was taught. In addition, her students who had to endure this drivel should file a class action lawsuit against her for blatant stupidity. The reason we have a 2nd Amendment was not only the fear of a standing army, but also a fear of a tyrannical government like the one we had in England.

    The founding fathers also feared another event like the one that sparked “the shot that was heard round the world.” This is when the British set sail on America to disarm the citizenry. They had taken control of the powder houses and were attempting to stop all importation of arms from foreign sources. Sound familiar? The founding fathers wanted to make sure that all citizens were armed and could fight off attackers just as we did the British.

    They, the founding fathers, also thought it important that we be able to protect ourselves from others that had malicious intent. The left always wants to make the 2nd Amendment seem archaic by pointing to the “fear of a standing army” argument. They simply ignore the fact that they also wanted every citizen to be able to defend themselves from any and all threats, whether governmental or criminal.

    The fear of a standing army is still a legitimate concern. I am not speaking of our military, but of the militarized state of our Federal Law Enforcement Agencies. Did you know that the Department of Education has a SWAT team?

    In fact, almost all government agencies have some type of criminal investigative division, and these divisions have been militarized. Have you seen the armored vehicles that the Department of Homeland Security has? I think the fear that the founding fathers had is still a legitimate fear today. Much has been written about the government procuring large amounts of ammunition over the last few years. Do they know something we don’t?

    Why do we keep such an allegiance to such an old document? We do so because it establishes the best form of government the world has ever seen! The problem with the left is that they think they are smarter than the founding fathers.

    They believe that they know what is best for you and me. They want us to be dependent on them for everything–from what sodas we can drink, to retirement, to healthcare, to protection. I am sorry, but the Federal Government is the last group I want to be in charge of my protection and the protection of my family. For hell’s sake, they can’t even get a website to work!

    Penrose is following the left’s playbook; use tragic events to muster emotional, irrational responses based on knee-jerk reaction–not fact. She asks the group if they believe that the legislative solution to violence is working. No one raised their hand.

    No kidding! Of course the legislative solution is not working—CRIMINALS DO NOT FOLLOW ANY LAWS—THAT’S WHY THEY ARE CRIMINALS! The only people hurt by their (the left’s) ignorant laws are law abiding citizens.

    So, Penrose’s solution is a compromise. Remember what a compromise is. It is simply a way to punish the first person who blinks. She wants to repeal the 2nd Amendment and then let each state decide what kinds of gun laws they want to have. Any guesses on what California’s gun laws would be?

    If they, the states, want restrictive laws, then they could have them; if they want less-restrictive laws then they could do that. Does anyone believe her? I don’t. This is what would happen: As soon as they got the 2nd Amendment repealed, which will never happen, they would pass new federal laws banning guns outright.

    Remember–the only thing standing between them and our guns is the 2nd Amendment. Senator Feinstein said she would collect all guns if she could. This is how the left works–through deception, and then come the apologies. If you do not believe me, look no further than Obamacare.

    Remember, if you are happy with your health plan, you can keep it. Fast forward a few years, and low and behold, people are losing their health plans. What does King Obama say? “I’m sorry.” Why should we believe anything they say? We should not, unless we want to get screwed.

    Penrose’s reasoning for repealing the 2nd Amendment is, “drastic times require drastic measures… I think the Second Amendment is misunderstood and I think it’s time today, in our drastic measures, to repeal and replace that Second Amendment.”

    She and I are in agreement; We are in drastic times. However, we have drastically different ideas on how to solve this issue. No amount of legislation will cure the problem of violence. I wrote an article a couple of weeks ago about violence and the truth is that violence will occur whether we have guns or not. It is human nature.

    My drastic measure is to allow concealed carry by all citizens of the United States. I do not think that you should be punished just because you live in California or Illinois. It is part of our right under the constitution. We may not be able to stop all violence by being armed, but we can sure limit its carnage.

    Another concern I have is why they are limiting their symposium to just gun violence. Do all the other violent crimes not matter? Are the victims of rape, domestic violence, and violence without guns somehow less important?

    Do they not deserve to have their plights discussed? The left knows that they cannot stop violence. They also know that getting rid of the 2nd Amendment will not stop violence, but it will allow them more control over the citizens of this country. This is what drives me crazy and angers me.

    They lie and are disingenuous, but pretend to be concerned for the safety and well-being of Americans. The truth is that they want to have all people rely on the government for everything. A self-sufficient people do not need big government nor bureaucrats.

    But, I am a reasonable man. If Penrose wants a compromise, I have one for her. If she will stop trying to repeal the 2nd Amendment and stop trying to ban guns, then I will defend her and her family, with my evil gun, when a criminal is trying to harm her. I will not ask for recompense or thanks.

    I will do it as a good neighbor and citizen. Remember, Ms. Penrose, when seconds count and your life is on the line, the police are minutes away. One of us gun-carrying nuts just may save your life.

    "You can't change Obamacare," They said, "It's the law of the land." they said. It's funny how they (libs) value a made up unconstitutional entitlement over an inalienable right given to us by our creator and our humanity. So let's take a look at the score board:

    Obamacare: Enacted 3 years ago, Law of the Land = Cannot change it even though the majority of America does not approve of it (Unless you do so by executive decree to help out yourself or your friends)

    2nd Amendment of the United States Constitution: Enacted 222 years ago, Law of the Land = Can and should be changed because some people don't like it.

    So yeah that makes no F*ckin sense.

    Should drop her off in the middle of Detroit or the south side of Chicago on a dark night and see how long it would take her to change her tune!

    I hate that I know this answer......Interracial Porn, generally involving 2 or more Black Males being "worshipped" by a compliant White Female.....You can fill in your own blanks.... And sadly, I think that who ever made the suggestion may be on to something...
