The Radical President Who Hated Our Second Amendment

How dare any president think they have the right to trample all over our Constitution?

It’s inexcusable for someone who’s elected by the people to believe that they are above our Constitution, the very fabric which built this great nation.

So, a shooting happened.  Is that really a reason for some knee-jerk emotional reaction which only punishes law-abiding citizens?  Gun regulations do nothing to deter criminals from committing these crimes because criminals don’t obey laws.  In fact these gun regulations wouldn’t have even prevented the shooting to begin with.

We cannot let people use fear to push through unconstitutional, pointless political agendas on gun regulations that only serve the purpose of taking away our guns and our right to defend against tyranny.

It’s why we should all be appalled that in 1991 the radical former President Ronald Reagan supported the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act.

Reagan even wrote an op-ed for the New York Times that passionately praised the Brady bill, saying it would “stop thousands of illegal handgun purchases.”

Then, in 1994, Reagan had the audacity (right before the passage of the assault weapons ban) to say, “I do not believe in taking away the right of the citizen for sporting, for hunting and so forth, or for home defense.  But I do believe that an AK-47, a machine gun, is not a sporting weapon or needed for defense of a home.”

The radical former President Reagan even went after our rights as Americans to own certain types of ammo, saying, “Certain forms of ammunition have no legitimate sporting, recreational, or self-defense use and thus should be prohibited.”

How dare he tell us Constitutional Americans how we can exercise our Second Amendment rights?

Who cares if well over one million felons have been denied the right to buy a gun because of the background checks required by the Brady Act?  The NRA (and true Constitutional Americans) know that these policies passed by the freedom-hating President Clinton, and supported by the radical former President Reagan, are unconstitutional!

Also, we shouldn’t forget that when President George W. Bush did nothing to repeal the Brady Act – a disgusting attack on our freedoms as Americans – he became part of the same radical attack on our Second Amendment as President Obama.

Hell, Bush actually took it a step further when he was quoted as saying that he felt the 2004 assault weapons ban should have been extended and continued.  Who the hell does this gun-hating radical think he is?

But wait, what else did I just discover?  The NRA’s CEO Wayne LaPierre once actually supported expanded background checks that included gun shows.

What the hell?  What’s becoming of this country with all of these gun-hating radical presidents like Reagan and Bush, and then even Wayne LaPierre supporting these attacks on our Second Amendment?

As we always do when these radicals attack our Second Amendment rights, we must rush out to buy every gun and bullet possible.  We must send the profits of the gun and bullet manufacturers soaring – because there’s absolutely no evidence that their financial backing of fearmongers in the media and on Capitol Hill has anything to do with increasing their profits.

It’s just all a giant coincidence.

Freedom! Liberty! The Constitution! America!

Now let’s go watch Rambo and get ready for our armed revolt.
