Dear Napoleon, No!

A Brief Refresher on Constitutional Authority

The federal government has three branches: Legislative, Executive, and Judiciary. The roles of these three co-equal divisions are succinctly defined in Articles III, and III, respectively. No, they are not “co-equal.” The authority of the Legislative branch is greater than the other two. Only We the People hold authority above the Congress.

The Legislative Branch holds the sole authority to create laws. The Executive Branch must execute the laws created by the Legislative Branch. The Judiciary is the arbiter of disputes of law.

Neither the Executive Branch nor the Judiciary has the authority to make laws.

The Supreme Law of the Land

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding. Article VI, second clause

Napoleon Pig’s Perverse Executive Orders are not Law

Implicit in Article VI, all laws, all treaties, all judicial opinions, and the actions of the Executive Branch must be in pursuance of the Constitution. Disregard is an antonym of pursuance.

A Simple Review of Amendments II, X, I

Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE

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. — Amendment II

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. — Amendment X

The federal government’s enumerated powers are reserved to Congress and are found in Article I, Section 8. These 18 clauses provide no federal authority over the possession of, the operation of, the size of the ammo clip, or any firearm or
parts. As per Amendment X, this is a power reserved to the states. Article I, Section 8, clause 3, empowers the federal government to regulate interstate commerce.

In Summary

Napoleon Pig’s misnamed Executive Order on Reducing Gun Violence and Making Our Communities Safer is not constitutionally enforceable by the federal government.

Financial experts from Robert Kiyosaki to Michael Burry anticipate financial collapse. If these gentlemen are accurate,
citizens will need the means to defend themselves from wrongdoers that threaten their lives.

Article 1, Section 23 of the Texas State Constitution lays out the authority of the State of Texas to regulate firearms in pursuance of Amendment X to the U.S. Constitution. Our state constitution supersedes Napoleon’s unconstitutional executive order.
