“Politicians seeking to confiscate guns from Americans shouldn’t share their plans with the public beforehand and should seek to maintain an element of surprise”, Joy Behar said on “The View”
“They should not tell everything they’re going to do. If you’re going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected — then take the guns away,” she said. “Don’t tell them ahead of time.” Monday, 11/4/2019
The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” The Second Amendment is one of 10 amendments that form the Bill of Rights, ratified in 1791 by the U.S. Congress.
I’m no right-wing zealot but I know the importance of the second amendment and why we have it. The citizens of a free country must have the ability to protect themselves, not just from external threats but internal threats as well.
We need to enforce the gun laws we have, we also need to protect the citizens of this country from people that should not have guns. That protection is not an infringement on anybody’s rights. It should fall in line with the basic norms of society.
Background checks should be mandatory for ALL gun purchases, if you feel threatened by a background check or can’t wait to buy a gun, then maybe you should NOT HAVE A GUN!
As a supporter of the 2nd amendment, I also don’t think anybody needs an automatic weapon. There is no need for it. Yea I know some will say the amendment protects any purchase of a gun and it does but just because you can have one does not mean you need one. I think in this case the greater good of society and some common sense here should prevail.
Now back to the idiot, Joy Behar. These words are far more dangerous than anybody owning a gun. Joy, might I suggest a good history book? to have a platform she has, to make a statement like that is just plain stupid. The minute the government can just act in such a way opens the door for them to act in any way they choose. There is no freedom with that, it is called tyranny. It invalidates a constitutional republic. this behavior strengthens the NRA, they will use that statement and block any real gun legislation that can help.
Joy, next time you have a thought just shut your mouth before you look any more stupid than you are now. Fortunately, I also believe in the first amendment more than the second amendment and that one gives her the right to be an idiot if she chooses.
