Pelosi: We Need To Uphold The Constitution By Enacting Gun Control

Not many people will argue that a few basic, common sense regulations regarding firearms is a Bad Idea. Surely we would like to keep them out of the hands of criminals, gang bangers, and others who would look to use them in a Bad Way. Surely we would like to keep people like, say, Eric Holder, from running them across the border into Mexico. Anyhow, here’s Nancy Pelosi, who happens to have armed security personnel protecting her, something she would prefer you not have, nor your own gun protecting yourself

(CNS News) Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D — Calif.) cited her oath to “protect and defend” the U.S. Constitution as the reason Congress should enact harsher gun control measures.

In a press release marking the one-year anniversary of the Aurora, Colorado shootings, the former Speaker of the House said: “In Congress, there can be no more fitting memorial to the lives lost in Aurora, in Newtown, and across the country than a concerted effort to enact commonsense gun safety legislation.

“We must uphold our oath to ‘protect and defend’ the constitution and all Americans by expanding background checks and keeping dangerous firearms out of the wrong hands.”

One problem is in defining “wrong hands”. The 2nd Amendment does not allow the government to restrict the right of a citizen to own a gun, but, again, I think we can agree that criminals shouldn’t have them, people with serious mental issues…which would leave most Democrats out of the mix…look, I just defined “wrong hands”. Think the Democrats won’t do the same with legislation, regulation, and other methods?

“We must restore confidence in the safety of our homes, schools, movie theaters, and neighborhoods by taking clear, concrete steps to prevent gun violence,” Pelosi added.

And apparently the best way to stop violence is to restrict law abiding citizens from owning and carrying guns. Because, as we all know, criminals follow the law and would never bring guns to schools, homes, and movie theaters.

I wonder if Barack knows that Nancy thinks she’s president?

The phrase “to protect and defend the Constitution” that Pelosi cited as the reason Congress must enact stricter gun control laws is not found in the oath that members of Congress take, but in the Presidential Oath of Office instead.

Aren’t you thrilled that Nancy doesn’t know her own Oath of office? Hers says “support and defend” the Constitution, but, like most legislation she votes for, she probably has not read it.
