“Validly enacted laws.” This is how New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas deceptively characterizes the new anti-gun laws he wants enforced against you.
They aren’t validly enacted. They violate the Second Amendment, so they aren’t even laws.
You might imagine they don’t violate the Constitution, based on cowardly and dishonest opinions of Supreme Court justices over the decades, but they do.
The Second Amendment is clear. It’s even more clear once you’ve read the discussions that surrounded writing the Bill of Rights. There was to be no question — no laws concerning guns were to ever be allowed under any circumstances whatsoever.
The attorney general claims to be the state’s chief “law enforcement officer,” yet he orders others to break the law that guides all legislation.
He is entitled to his opinions, but not to making up his own facts.
No actions of a rogue governor, representative or attorney general can make an anti-gun law constitutional, legal, or valid. They can make threats, send letters, or hold meetings to try to force their will. They can bully other government employees and the residents of the state. It doesn’t make their lies true.
You and I both know government will do whatever it can get away with. The solution is to not allow these out-of-control officials to get away with any violation of liberty.
This violation of their oath of office should result in the immediate loss of the position; dragged from their offices in chains if they won’t leave peaceably.
If you believe I’m only passionate about gun rights, I’ll remind you I am equally opposed to prohibition, border controls, and all other violations of natural human rights as well.
If you value the Constitution you should join me. If not, you should join me anyway since anything that violates a natural human right is wrong, even when the Constitution allows it.
It’s a criminal act when public officials impose their wishes in defiance of what the Constitution allows.
Back in the 1920s, those who advocated alcohol prohibition at least passed a Constitutional amendment to make their laws Constitutional. They were still wrong, but they made the attempt to play by the rules. Those who target your liberty today don’t even go through the motions. They do what they want, secure in the knowledge that the courts will not bite the hand that feeds them.
Gang loyalty is powerful.
If government won’t, or can’t, control its appetites, it needs to be taken to the woodshed. It’s past time.
