Judge Andrew Napolitano: Second Amendment bars many gun restrictions being proposed after mass shootings

By Judge Andrew P. Napolitano |

Last weekend’s mass murders in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, have produced a flood of words about everything from gun control to mental illness to white nationalism. Most of those words have addressed the right to keep and bear arms as if it were a gift from the government. It isn’t.

The Supreme Court has twice ruled in the past 11 years that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual pre-political liberty. That is the highest category of liberty recognized in the law. It is akin to the freedoms of thought, speech and personality.

 

That means that the court has recognized that the framers of the Constitution did not bestow this right upon us. Rather, they recognized its preexistence as an extension of our natural human right to self-defense and they forbade government – state and federal – from infringing upon it.

It would be exquisitely unfair, profoundly unconstitutional and historically un-American for the rights of law-abiding folks – “surrender that rifle you own legally and use safely because some other folks have used that same type of weapon criminally” – to be impaired in the name of public safety.

It would also be irrational. A person willing to kill innocents and be killed by the police while doing so surely would have no qualms about violating a state or federal law that prohibited the general ownership of the weapon he was about to use.

With all of this as background, and the country anguishing over the mass deaths of innocents, the feds and the states face a choice between a knee-jerk but popular restriction of some form of gun ownership and the rational and sound realization that more guns in the hands of those properly trained means less crime and more safety.

Can the government constitutionally outlaw the types of rifles used by the El Paso and Dayton killers? In a word: No.

We know this because in the first Supreme Court opinion upholding the individual right to keep and bear arms, the court addressed what kind of arms the Second Amendment protects. The court ruled that the Second Amendment protects individual ownership of weapons one can carry that are of the same degree of sophistication as the bad guys have – or the government has.

The government? Yes, the government. That’s so because the Second Amendment was not written to protect the right to shoot deer. It was written to protect the right to shoot at tyrants and their agents when they have stolen liberty or property from the people.

If you don’t believe me on this, then read the Declaration of Independence. It justifies violence against the British government because of such thefts.

Governments are the greatest mass killers on the planet. Who can take without alarm any of their threats to emasculate our right to defend our personal liberties?

In theory, all of this was known by President Trump when he addressed the nation and attributed the weekend slaughters to mental illness, the freedom to express hateful ideas on the Internet and violent video games. He should have consulted his lawyers before he spoke.

Federal law prohibits records of mental health problems, unless they result in involuntary institutionalization, from entering the government’s databases that are consulted in background checks. And the Supreme Court has already ruled that the government cannot censor, ban or punish opinions expressed on the Internet or games played there.

Snipped for brevity.

 

We know that some among us love to hate. That is their right, but they have no right to act violently beyond their perverse thoughts. And all people have the right to defend against such violence by using guns to do so.

The president also offered his support for “red flag” laws. These horrific statutes permit police or courts to seize guns from those deemed dangerous.

Red flag laws are unconstitutional.The presumption of innocence and the due process requirement of demonstrable fault as a precondition to any punishment or sanction together prohibit the loss of liberty on the basis of what might happen in the future.

In America, we do not punish a person or deprive anyone of liberty on the basis of a fear of what the person might do. When the Soviets used psychiatric testimony to predict criminal behavior, President Ronald Reagan condemned it. Now, the president wants it here.

Snipped again for brevity.

The government can no more interfere with Second Amendment rights than it can infringe upon any other rights. If this were not so, then no liberty – speech, press, religion, association, self-defense, privacy, travel, property ownership – would be safe from the reach of a fearful majority.

That’s why we have a Constitution.

So there you have it.

Now STFU with your gun grabbing fantasies.

  1. Like a court opinion or Constitutional statue is going to stop Congress form doing Un-constitutional crap like this. I direct you to Executive Order 9066. It’s the one that interred the Japanese on the West Coast. Probably the biggest piece of crap ever written but upheld by the SCOTUS. So, just understand that when men convene to usurp your rights it is your right to throw off such impediments to your liberty, hoist the Black flag and begin slitting throats.

  2. I hate to tell you this. But Government couldn’t care less what the constitution says. I was just informed that I am banned from commenting on sights using the GOOGLE spam filter CAPCA for “DANGEROUS IDEAS” . Now I freely admit to being an asshole. I also don’t give a shit what government thinks of that as I have stage 4 cancer and there is nothing they have that they can scare me with. I don’t draw a check or take one penny of governments stolen money. I have been fighting cancer for ten years and in all that time have never taken a dime from the .Gov. What are they gonna do…shoot me? Like a sudden pain free death isn’t a blessing. They don’t care what the constitution says anymore. They are going to take the guns. The bill of rights is over as far as they are concerned, and you can be certain that right after they start confiscation the reeducation(death)camps will open.

  4. It’s actually kind of liberating when you realize the filth making the laws cherrypicks the ones it wishes to abide by. I’ll go ahead and reserve that right for myself, as well. Potential consequences? Maybe…. For them?… Maybe. “Freedom begins between the ears”.

    • There’s a meme out there which on the top half shows a bunch of soldiers storming a beach. It says, “War is when the government tells you who the enemy is.”

      On the bottom half it shows Washington and a bunch of his men crossing the Delaware on Christmas Eve, 1776 to attack the Hessians in Trenton. It says, “Revolution is when you figure out who is the enemy by yourself.”

      I’d say that this meme is 100% spot-on.

  5. They all have to go. All. Of. Them.
    They speak for none of us.
    They are all usurpers.

    They will find out the hard way. They can not help themselves. Everyone of them are after power over us. It is what they do. Our natural rights as Freemen to own property, which is the first thing our weapons are, and defending ourselves from them and their tyranny has absolutely nothing to do with any man made laws, they don’t mean squat.
    We have all who know better and what matters, have been very polite and courteous, going along with the BS of a social contract and an instrument of centralized regulatory fiat called the US Constitution.

    You know what?
    I didn’t sign that fucking flea bitten piece of dissected sheep leather.
    I was born a free man, born into liberty.
    And everyone of these clowns can kiss my ass.

    Come and take them you sonofabitches.

  6. There is already 20,000 plus laws written and enacted ALL of which are direct blatant violations of the Second Amendment….and ALL of them have been used to turn citizen into felons. The laws being discussed currently are ALL equally unconstitutional and ALL that are passed WILL BE ENFORCED. The government doesn’t give a flying fu*k about the Second Amendment, the Constitution or our rights. The ONLY thing that matters to the people in power is MORE POWER. The recent mass shootings are simply the excuse they need to disarm us. Make no mistake about. The left intends to RULE us and to do so safely requires they disarm us. And that is what they intend to do and the ONLY way to stop them is to KILL THEM. Thy aren’t going to give up or go away voluntarily.
