The Constitution is We The People telling the government what it may do, and the Bill of Rights is We The People telling it what it must not do.
And the corollary of that is that the Constitution doesn’t belong to the Government, especially not the Supreme Court. It belongs to We The People, as a collar and leash belongs not to the dog, but to the master.
Whenever We feel Our dogs straining at the leash, it is up to Us to scold them, put them in their kennel, or in the worst case, tie a particularly unruly one to a tree within sight of the pack and shoot it.
If the Constitution guaranteed the RKBA, it wouldn’t be so baldly infringed.
The Constitution is nothing more than a line in the sand; it’s up to us to punish those who dare to cross it.
The Second Amendment does not make militia membership a prerequisite to gun ownership — quite the contrary. Owning a gun and being trained in its use automatically confers militia membership, and a well armed and well trained militia is deemed a necessary bulwark to liberty.
Technically, I am an agnostic. That doesn’t mean I don’t believe in God because I feel I lack sufficient evidence; that is the skeptical stance.
Instead, I have faith because even in principle, I can not know, in the sense of possessing falsifiable, scientific facts, that God exists. I must accept Him on faith, and proceed as if I knew, as if the very equations of science proclaimed the mysteries of faith: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.
Mohammed’s Error in creating his warrior cult was precisely that he tried to trade belief for fact, faith for knowing. He set down specific rules and claimed that those who do not follow his rules cannot be Muslims, and deserve slavery and death. In so doing, he killed and mummified Allah, and drove himself and his murderous followers insane, right down to the present day.
People who try to prove the existence of God through science, whether physics, or neurology, or psychology, or even evolution, are committing Mohammed’s Error, and his sin: they are trying to put God in a killing jar and pin His husk to a cork board with neat little labels. That way leads to judging others, rather than ourselves, and trying to bring God’s wrath on them on God’s behalf, and thence to hell on Earth.
I’m talking to you, Vox, not just the Gaia-ists and behaviorists.
