Obama’s Latest Threat to Second Amendment Rights

with 3 comments

President Obama has been working with other world leaders to keep nuclear weapons only in the hands of a limited number of governments throughout the world in a misguided attempt to protect us from terrorists and rogue states.  This little story has been ignored by the main stream media, which comes as no surprise to me.  However, I am shocked and appalled that conservative sources have also ignored this affront to civil liberties because it is not a threat to our current freedoms as much as our future freedoms.

The second amendment of our beloved Constitution clearly says that we have the right to bear arms.  Due to current technology, this right to bear arms is often limited to the right to bear guns.  This is not what our founding fathers had intended.   Anybody like myself who has hoped to one day have a small suitcase nuke as the ultimate deterrent to criminals should be likewise outraged by the attempt to withhold nuclear armaments from law abiding citizens.   Mark my words, 20 years from today if you make nuclear weapons illegal, then only the criminals will have them.

I know what some of you are thinking.  Why should an individual have the right to have a nuclear weapon capable of destroying a city?  They shouldn’t.   However, a miniature nuclear device that would be portable, easy to use, and destroy at most a couple of city blocks should be available for the defense of law abiding citizens.  One of the great things about out founding fathers is that they did not allow the limits of 18th century technology to limit freedoms.   If we allow Obama’s shortsighted policies to strip us of our future freedoms when nukes become smaller and more tactical, then we will be the ones who suffer for it.  If we allow governments to keep a monopoly on nuclear weapons, then we are forever going to be enslaved by those same nuclear weapons.

  1. Do you think I could take a small thermo-nuclear device to a Tea Party? Would anyone get upset if it went off there? Just wondering.

  2. I need one of these miniature nuclear devices for the next time somebody starts tailgating me on the highway. Jerk will finally get what’s coming to him.

  3. Zen–Just be careful with it and I’m sure there’d be no problem.

    Wrecks–That’d work, but just make sure they’re tailgating and not simply driving a Toyota.
