WHEREAS, Gun violence is an ever present problem in the State, as well as nationwide; an example of which is 8 persons dying in Chicago in one week in October due to gun violence; and . . .
Followed by not only a complete misunderstanding of the 2nd Amendment and the writings of the framers behind it [informed largely by the various state constitutions]….but also a sad tantrum at the alleged ‘partisanship of five SCOTUS judges. Apparently ignorant of the same sort of partisanship of the four SCOTUS judges that they agree with.
Specifically, there is no indication that the Framers of the Amendment intended to enshrine the common-law right of self-defense in the Constitution.”
The entire premise behind the Amendment is to protect the pre-existing natural right of self defense. Part of that natural right is the ability to form and arm a militia to oppose State tyranny.
Idiots. But at least they feel better. That’s what counts…..
