Second Amendment

A Clever Way for Leftists To Achieve Gun Control?

Newsom will force the Supreme Court to weigh written rights against imaginary rights.  The right to bear arms is an actual written right.  It’s right there in the 2nd Amendment.  I double-checked, and it’s really there, clear as day: the right of people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.  It can’t get any simpler than that.

The need to justify force with righteousness is not limited to wartime.
