What Are Those "Second Amendment Remedies"


Question to lunatic right wing fringe Gun Nuts: What are those "Second Amendment remedies" to having imposed on our nation a morally illegitimate president... massively REJECTED by the People... a president who is obviously incompetent, some argue is mentally ill, and who may be a Manchurian Candidate subject to blackmail by a hostile power?

Or are those alleged Second Amendment "remedies" just for women or black presidents who happen to be Dems?

4. We should mess with their heads and start talking about our second amendment remedies.

Somehow they believe they've got the market on guns cornered and have forgotten everyone who doesn't agree with them can buy as many weapons as they want, too. Crazy or not.

5. it's not about guns... it's about their bastardization of the 2ed

The Right has no shame when it comes to bastardizing the Constitution. Arguably it started with a vengeance in the Reagan era... after the 1971 Powell Memo which called for using the courts as part of a grand, coordinated strategy for a corporate offensive. Reagan picked justices who not only bastardized the all important 9th amendment to turn the Constitution into a document that made citizens fight for rights... instead of putting the burden on government to justify a legitimate social need for such limitations... but also to turn the Second into a protection for anyone to own a gun... encouraging the idea that the Constitution intended citizens to take on the government if they didn't like it. Madison does speak of this in Federalist 46 but he spoke only in the context of state militias under civic control... and this idea was never codified.
