Pelosi: The First Amendment protects your gun rights, or something

posted at 1:21 pm on February 11, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

First Joe Biden can’t identify the article in the Constitution that authorizes the executive branch during a debate with Sarah Palin, and now Nancy Pelosi can’t identify which amendment recognizes the right to bear arms.  It’s bad enough that elected officials can’t properly identify the components of the foundational legal document of the United States when debating issues in public — but these two are party leaders.  One wants to run for President in three years, and another wants to become Speaker of the House again in two years.   Is it too much to ask that they study the Constitution a little bit first?

“We avow the First Amendment. We stand with that and say that people have a right to have a gun to protect themselves in their homes, in their jobs, where ever… in their workplace. For recreation, for hunting and the rest. So we’re not questioning that they do that,” Pelosi inarticulately told Wallace.

This isn’t just some esoteric reference, such as the 25th Amendment process for presidential disability and succession, or the 22nd Amendment limiting presidential terms.  The gun rights/gun control debate is almost always framed as “a Second Amendment rights” issue.  It sounds positively ignorant for anyone debating the issue of gun control; it’s a little frightening that Pelosi can’t correctly identify it in a news interview while demanding limitations on “assault weapons,” which she doesn’t bother to define.  Her colleagues in this debate have had that problem all along in attempting to distinguish between semi-automatic rifles that do the exact same thing — fire one bullet at a time — while looking more or less scary on the surface.

Maybe lawmakers should familiarize themselves with the fundamental facts before attempting to legislate for the rest of us

Well, Nancy really doesn’t want to identify with much of our nation’s foundational legal documentation, since much of it interferes with what she and far too many of our illustrious leaders in DC wish to do to us.

and now Nancy Pelosi can’t identify which amendment recognizes the right to bear arms.

She couldn’t identify the amendment that she wanted Obama to use to bypass Congress and raise the debt ceiling on his own. The 14th Amendment doesn’t even support the idiotic claim that the President/Executive Branch can increase the debt ceiling on its own.

‘Is it the 11th Amendment? 14th? Whatever… I’m With the Constitution.’

It sounds positively ignorant for anyone debating the issue of gun control; it’s a little frightening that Pelosi can’t correctly identify it in a news interview

Not really. In her mind the Second Amendment has already gone the way of the 18th. Seriously, any stupid vain woman who can get up there and say that the 2nd Amendment is about the right to hunt is a partisan idiot.

The Second Amendment is about private citizens having the right to protect themselves as much from withered up prunes in a dictatorial government as it is about protecting themselves from intruders or shooting deer. Pelosi has good reason to want guns banned because few dictators or despots at her level die of old age in their own beds.

Happy Nomad on February 11, 2013 at 2:03 PM

Amusingly, I’ve been suggesting for years the the familiar gun-controller’s argument that begins: “What kind of message does it send to…” implies First Amendment protection for the RKBA. But not very seriously.

You only get partial credit for your answer.

The left wants to ban SOME guns. The ones that look scary even though there are others not on the hit list that could be more lethal. That is by design.

Essentially after they get rid of the AR-15s because the Sandy Hook shooter used one of those… Then they have a second round where they get rid of weapons with more leathality because if the AR-15s are bad then the damage that can be done by a [fill in weapon here] must have been left off the list by oversight.

Joe Biden has sworn that nobody among the enemies to freedom are looking to ban private citizens from owning legal firearms. What he doesn’t say is that these Constitution-hating traitors intend to essentially make every weapon illegal for private ownership. Getting rid of potential opposition among the masses is a trick used by all the dictators including Stalin and Hitler. Why wouldn’t the rat-eared wonder do the same as his non-Muslim heroes?

So if Pelousi agrees that we all have a right to have a gun to protect ourselves in our jobs, where ever… in our workplace, can someone with some cajones in the House please introduce this up for vote: universal carry privileges. It would pass the House since Nan is all for it apparently.
States can decide whether to allow it as open or concealed, but they MUST issue.

So, it’s just a very minor point, but the official report from the Sandy Hook shooting won’t be released until probably summer. First reports indicated that the AR-15 was still in the vehicle and wasn’t used in the shooting.

I don’t know if that’s actually the case or not but the fact is, we don’t know what really happened yet. But of course, the socialist media and anti-gun Nazi’s don’t care about that. They’re going to say it was used to kill all those kids regardless because that’s what fits their narrative

Meople on February 11, 2013 at 2:26 PM

As you said. Whether or not an AR-15 was used is irrelevant. This is about getting as many guns and harassing as many private gun owners as possible. These people were high-fiving one another when the body count of children went to twenty because they finally had an atrocity shocking enough they could trot out their anti-Constitutional agenda. Chicago, a gun-free city, had the most homocides by firearms last year but clearly the path to universal confiscation of firearms leads through dead white children in CT at the hands of a guy with mental illness and not through dead black children killed by other dead black children.

I would say they want ban all guns, but they want to do incrementally.

The whole AW scam is just the old Divide and conquer scheme – get some people to throw over their fellow gun owners in the hopes that they won’t be targeted.

Problem is, since there is no set definition, their guns could easily be defined a such and they will lose their freedom as well.

Some, who may support this kind of thing, or those who are for Universal Gun Registration, don’t realize that when one group loses their freedom, we all lose.

Biden has made conflicting statements on the idea of banning guns…

“Banning guns is an idea whose time has come.”

– Senator Joseph Biden, Associated Press, 18 November 1993

I would argue that Biden (and most Democrats) would be 100% for banning all guns in the hands of private citizens IF IT WERE NOT POLITICALLY SUICIDAL.

Just like passing a bill to see what in it, well, ya have to put it your head and pull the trigger to see if its loaded.

Is it too much to ask that they study the Constitution a little bit first?

Why bother? Lefties have proven themselves incapable of learning. Look at the Constitutional lecturer, B.H. Obama. Doesn’t understand the first freakin’ thing about the Constitution.

She is obviously taking lessons on guns from DiFi since she has no clue what she is talking about. “Increased capacity magazines”? I have not seen many mags that have a way to increase their capacity. I wish that her stupidity would rebound, but it never does.

As was said many times in an SNL skit, Jane Nancy, you ignorant slut slug. San Francisco elects left-wing imbeciles.

I listened to her stumble, bumble through an explanation of why we don’t have a spending problem. She blamed our problems on a budget deficit. I know, whatever that means. Does she think the senate has passed a budget when we weren’t watching? Maybe she had a wine tasting to go to and it slipped by her.
