Bill Maher wants Dems to 'come out against 2nd Amnd.,' congressman promises to

In the end, let's hope that Rep. Ellison is correct, and that "progressive" Democrats will campaign on a platform that admits to seeking the end of the Second Amendment--that they have given up trying to pretend that their forcible citizen disarmament agenda can be realized without infringing on that which shall not be infringed. Good luck with that.

Bill Maher is just trying to be a modern day Lenny Bruce. Using the 2nd amendment as a platform, as opposed to Bruce's obscenity and sex routine, he believes he has found his niche. I can only hope he faces the same fate as Bruce; bankrupt and irrelevant.

If Maher is really trying to be the second coming of Lenny Bruce then he's about a dollar short and a day late. That position is well and truly held by Howard Stern.

Maher, however, is a pretty sharp intellect but shares a fatal flaw with many of those on the left: he choses to ignore things which might disprove or impair his world view.

No doubt he is well aware of US v Cruikshank.

If somehow it should come to pass that 2A were repealed, that sad event would have no impact whatsoever on my RKBA, or yours, or Bill Maher's.

At least the "Progressives" will finally be nakedly, openly, out against the 2A, instead of hiding behind such fig leaves as "common sense" and "for the children".

Anon@9:22AM, excellent post. I had completely forgotten about Howard Stern and he is indeed Bruce's reincarnation. I also looked up US v Cruikshank. What a read it was! Opened my eyes to a lot of evil that it allowed. Then I went on to research the Colfax Massacre. While I have read of many massacres in American history, I confess, that one was entirely new to me. A heart felt thank you for the education.

Gee walley, why would a Muslim like Ellison want to see Americans disarmed?

Well beaver, it's because Ellison wants to create a caliphate worldwide, meaning you will have to wash your feet and pray 7times a day.

Gee walley, why ya gotta gimme the business? I was really asking a real question!

Beaver, I gave you the real answer.

Ah jeez.

Actual legit stand up comedians like Artie Lange and norm macdonald (a Ron Paul supporter) say that Maher is not even remotely funny, and relies on being snarky to the clapping seals in his audience to be funny.

Speaking of stern, I remember when a black former playboy playmate who had briefly dated Maher talked about him. She said he was a horrible guy and very full of himself to the point of asking her not to commit suicide with her when he broke up with her via letter - she died laughing over it.

Please, please let's make bill maher the voice of the gun control movement - maybe politicians will listen to him then and be honest about their intent.

Like Miller many years later, the ruling in Cruikshank was a very mixed bag. But it held a gem that was referred to recently in Heller and has now been incorporated to apply to states and cities by McDonald. The relevant language from Cruikshank is as follows:

"This is not a right granted by the Constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence. The second amendment declares that it shall not be infringed, but this, as has been seen, means no more than that it shall not be infringed by Congress. This is one of the amendments that has no other effect than to restrict the powers of the national government, leaving the people to look for their protection against any violation by their fellow citizens of the rights it recognizes."


If the Second Amendment is repealed --- RKBA still exists!

If the Government of the United States of America ceases to exist --- RKBA still exists!

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness..." -- Thomas Jefferson

There's your RKBA. And as long as your creator (however you may perceive the meaning of that word) exists, so does your RKBA.

I say "bring it". Let all the libtard asshats like Bill Maher go full zombie and show their true colors. Let them go ahead & pass all of the unconstitutional, null & void 'statutes' they can dream up. Let them go forward with Rosie O'Donnell's insane scheme to put all gun owners in camps. Let them have it their way. The immutable law of unintended consequences will bite them squarely in the arse and then their dreams, plans, voided 'laws', careers and positions will all end up on the ash heap of history; and hopefully they'll end up on an ash heap themselves.

Since the Constitution is still the law of the land, the penalty for Treason is still the same. And treason is not merely siding with 'the enemy' in wartime; the definition is broader than that. Taking action against the law of the land and subverting our form of government is itself treason as well. These apparatchiks would do well to remember that fact as well. We will not sit idly by while they complete their treason.
