Subject: Gun Control
Joe Biden says, “do something”. The one thing you and all lawmakers must do is read and study the U.S. Constitution. A short study of Article II, Section 8 (enumerated powers of Congress), Article VI, second paragraph, the Supreme Law of the Land defined, Amendment II (the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed), and Amendment X (it’s permissible for the states to do all the ‘somethings’ you cannot do.)
California Gavin Newsom boasts of the strict gun laws his state legislature has passed. Regardless of your personal feelings about any of them, they are constitutional because the regulation of guns owned and/or possessed by citizens is not one of the enumerated powers of Congress.
Amendment X clearly and unmistakably and absolutely says, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
President Joe Biden is on public record saying the “Second Amendment is not absolute”.
On January 20, 2021, Joe Biden took the oath of office. His words:
“I, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, so help me God.”
The executive Power stipulated in Article II, Section 1 means to carry out; accomplish, the Supreme Law of the Land defined in Article VI. The language of the U.S. Constitution is clear and unambiguous. The Supreme Law of the Land is absolute. Therefore the legislative duties of Congress and the Executive branch are absolute, not to be twisted and misapplied to serve some unconstitutional purpose.
Joe Biden’s directive to Congress to “do something” has no force of law. His disdain for the Rule of Law and the Supreme Law of the Land manifest as baby formula shortages, extraordinary high fuel prices, and the depletion of our Strategic Petroleum Reserve created solely to fuel our military forces in time of war, not to artificially deflate motor fuel prices.
Obvious to most Americans now is Joe Biden is doing the bidding of the extreme environmentalists who imagine some overnight, sudden transformation of American transportation from natural fuels to battery power.
Pat, I urge you to challenge your colleagues in the House to reconcile each bill with the Constitution, specifically the enumerated powers of Congress clearly and unambiguously listed in Article I, Section 8.
Regardless of the opinions of party leaders in the House, you know very well that opinions are like noses: everybody has one, please remember that the Constitution, as amended, is in fact absolute and can only be changed by an Article V amendment to the Constitution.
