Subject: Executive Order on Reducing Gun Violence and Making Our Communities Safer
The federal government has three branches: Legislative, Executive, and Judiciary. The roles of these three divisions are succinctly defined in Articles I, II, and III, respectively. No, they are not “co-equal.” The authority of the Legislative branch is greater than the other two. 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.
Article VI, the second clause, defines the Supreme Law of the Land. Lawmaking authority for either the Executive or Judicial branches are conspicuously excluded from the definition. I point to an important phrase within this article: in Pursuance thereof. Application of this three-word phrase implicitly applies also to treaties, executive orders, and federal regulations.
The President’s behaviors reflect those of Napoleon, the head pig character in Animal Farm. Hereinafter, I refer to the sitting president as Napoleon the Pig due to the similarities between the actions of this president and Napoleon the Pig.
Napoleon’s latest executive order is not in pursuance of the Constitution. On the contrary, it conflicts with Amendments II, X, and Article VI. Furthermore, Article I, Section 8 precludes federal authority over firearms.
For reference, I point to applicable articles and amendments to U.S. Constitution and the Texas Constitution.
- A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of thepeople 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
- Article I, Section 8, clause 3, empowers the federal government to regulate interstate commerce with respect to firearms, not the ownership or personal possession of firearms.
- 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.
- 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, operation, size of the ammo clip, or any firearm or parts. As per Amendment X, this is a power reserved to the states.
Napoleon the 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.
