Let’s recap some of the unconstitutional and un-American activities of this current administration, and please remember the definition of fascism; socialism with a veneer of capitalism.
- Consummate community organizer with 143 days of senate experience is installed in the White House.
- The Federal Government obtains control of the banks.
- The Federal Government obtains control of 2 major car companies.
- The White House plunges the country into unprecedented red ink.
- The pResident appoints 30some apparently crazy czars with no congressional oversight.
- The liberal left congress confirms an activist supreme court justice.
- The Federal Reserve prints money day and night, and monetizes the debt.
- The Federal Reserve “loses” $9 Trillion taxpayer dollars.
- The T.A.R.P. is NOT transparent.
- The White House to set standards for compensation across the financial industry.
- The White House and Congress have liberal left groups writing the bills.
- The White House and Congress ARE NOT READING the bills before voting on them.
- The pResident and his far left liberal cronies try to obtain control of 1/6 of our economy through healthcare reform and a government run plan.
- The senate writes a bill where an American will ultimately go to jail for not signing up for health care and paying the fines associated with it.
….and the next piece of the puzzle is the piece that readers here at the Monster have been waiting for because we knew it was coming; control of 2nd Amendment rights.
From the Washington Post:
The Supreme Court on Wednesday said it will decide whether the right to own guns for self-defense, announced by the court last year when it struck down the District of Columbia’s ban on handguns, also covers states and other cities with gun-control laws.
The landmark decision in Heller v. District of Columbia did not address the question of whether the Second Amendment extends beyond the federal government and federal enclaves like the District.
The case the court accepted Wednesday concerns the city of Chicago, which bans most handguns.
In the Heller case, the court held for the first time that individuals have a right to gun ownership. Until then, the court had only recognized that the constitutional “right to keep and bear arms” protected a state’s ability to maintain a militia.
Other court precedents have held that the Second Amendment restricts only federal law, as was the case with most of the Bill of Rights. Through the years, the court has applied most of the amendments, but not all, to the states, a process called “incorporation.” The Heller decision specifically left the question about the Second Amendment for another day.
Alan Gura, the Alexandria lawyer who successfully challenged the District’s law, sued the city of Chicago, which has a handgun ban virtually identical to Washington’s, plus other restrictions. Ruling in that case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit said only the Supreme Court can decide whether the Second Amendment applies.
“Even if the Court were to hold the Second Amendment applicable to states and localities,” he said, “such a ruling is unlikely to change the crucial holding by the Supreme Court in Heller that a wide range of reasonable gun laws are presumptively constitutional, and that the Second Amendment right is narrowly limited to guns in the home for self-defense.”
The door is about to be opened to the loss of more states and individuals’ rights.
