Even the New York Times Admits President Biden Has Little To No Power To Infringe On the Second Amendment

Democrats are like a broken record.

On Thursday, the New York Times (NYT) wrote that President Joe Biden “faces limits of his power” to infringe upon the Second Amendment, after Biden said he was going to restrain American’s sacred right to defend themselves to keep and bear arms.

Second Amendment:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

That series of clauses that make up the Second Amendment says that the federal government may not even have a conversation about infringing on the right to keep and bear arms. That’s what “shall not be infringed” means. Yet the federal government has been infringing for decades. And it has been the Democratic Party and liberal judges who violate the rule nearly every time.

While Democrats claim that Roe v Wade was “settled law” even though there has not been a time in the history of the unconstitutional SCOTUS ruling in 1973 where Americans have been fighting it, the Second Amendment actually is settled law because it is in the Bill of Rights. It cannot be changed or infringed upon without permission from the states in the form of an amendment.

After the week from Hell with two mass shootings, which includes Tuesday’s Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, the NYT acknowledged that Biden is “caught” between “vowing to act and the reality that he cannot deliver on sweeping promises.” In other words, the dementia-laden president shouldn’t run his mouth making promises that he knows he can’t keep.

Democrats think that rules are for suckers. They believe the Constitutional limitations that our brilliant Founding Fathers wrote into that document are not rules but merely suggestions, and they feel that if a situation is serious enough that it warrants a change, then to Hell with the law. They’re going to do something about it. Well, it doesn’t work that way.

Democrats and leftists will tell you that the Constitution was written so that it could change with the times. While they are technically correct, they never follow through with the details of how the Constitution allows for changes to keep up with the times. That process is known as an amendment to the Constitution. A couple weeks ago we heard so-called legal experts on Fake News networks saying that about abortion. They championed that the Democrats worked to create a federal law that would codify Roe, but they never brought up that in order to do so, the Congress had to propose an amendment in order to ask the states for permission to create an abortion law.

Tenth Amendment:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The Tenth Amendment is also in the Bill of Rights and it says that the Constitution gives the federal government 18 enumerated powers, (Enumerated means listed or numbered for those of you who vote Democrat.), and any powers outside of those given to the federal government by the Constitution belong to the states or the people. Sometimes the Founders referred to the states as states and sometimes as the people.

The Tenth Amendment reaffirms that the Constitution does not give the Congress the power to pass any law it wants outside of the 18 enumerated powers written in the Constitution and/or powers found in amendments. Believe it or not, this means that programs like the Affordable Care Act are not Constitutional. I can’t find anywhere in the Constitution where it gives the federal government the power to create a federal health program, so it makes Obamacare illegal according to our Constitutional system of law. That goes for Medicare and Medicaid as well. Nothing in the Constitution that gives the Congress the authority to create such programs and I don’t know of any amendments where the federal Congress has asked the states for permission to create those programs.

This also means that if the Democrats want to do away with a citizen’s right to keep and bear arms, they have to do so in the form of an amendment where they ask the states for permission to take that power from them. Ever notice states can make laws about the Second Amendment?

The Times’ admission describes an unfortunate position for the Democrats, who through time have relied on the federal government to give them the things they could not get out of the states when they wanted to create broad changes in the country. Most, if not all, of what the Democrats try to do is unconstitutional, yet they will laugh in your face if you bring it up to them. Look how hysterical they got when the Supreme Court initial draft document of the Mississippi abortion case was illegally leaked. They freaked out because the High Court was about to overturn the Roe v Wade decision. The Court is basically saying that abortion is not a federal matter. The states have the power to regulate it, not the federal government. This is what I’m talking about. Roe was a court ruling, not a law. Courts do not have the power to create laws any more than the Executive branch.

The Times piece acknowledged Biden’s limitations, saying, “For Mr. Biden, the limitations on presidential authority — and the disappointment with legislative roadblocks — go back decades.”

It’s not legislative roadblocks. It’s called the US Constitution.

“Biden’s staff said there were real limits on the executive power a president can wield, even in moments of national grief. He cannot ban military-style weapons or raise the age to purchase a rifle; such actions would require passing legislation in Congress,” the article said.

Correction, such actions would require an amendment.

If the Democrats want to help curb mass school shootings, they might want to start with getting rid of the ridiculous Gun-Free School Zone laws that make our children sitting ducks for any gunman who wants to shoot up a lot of people while knowing there will be no one in the school who can shoot back because unlike criminals law-abiding people follow the law. Something this simple never occurs to Democrats because it’s really not about stopping school shootings. For them, it’s about de-arming America so that the government can rule with an iron fist.

Maybe if Democrats were a little more honest about what they want, they might be taken for something other than a scourge on our society.

During his loathsome press conference where he addressed the Uvalde shooting, Biden asked, “What in God’s name do you need an assault weapon for except to kill someone?”

The only proper response to that question is, “It’s none of your business. Go watch Matlock.”
