With all the great works by others in the pro-gun arena, I didn’t want to jump into the fray, even as a guest blogger, unless I had something unique to offer; a niche to fill.
So here goes…
F*ck the 2nd Amendment.
But please do so in a respectful manner since I’m not lost on the fact that the 1st Amendment protects my Right to say that.
Rule of Duh #1:
Self defense is a natural Right inherent to all flora, fauna and fungi.
Rule of Duh #2:
Human Beings are animals.
Therefore, human beings have a natural inherent Right of self defense.
Too many people, on both sides of the 2A debate, are caught up with linguistics, true intent of the writings of dead people and the perceived force of court precedent. There are others that have hashed out Miller, Cruikshank, Heller, the Federalist Papers etc, at great lengths. While I admire and deeply respect the time, energy and detail in this research, I can’t help pouring myself a drink, raising it above my head and softly saying:
“Wow, that’s neato… now F*ck it.”
As a life form, I have the inherent Right to preserve my living status whether or not the 2A was written clearly, written poorly or even written at all.
Rule of Duh #3:
Humans are good at making and using tools.
Let that soak in a bit.
