After last week, it’s time to start buying guns and ammo

stvncrwdrSteven Crowder of “Louder with Crowder” isn’t known for being a nut. He’s actually a very witty and bright mind on the right. He’s now come out and said with the Supreme Court lurching to the left last week on Obamacare and same-sex marriage, ignoring the Constitution, it’s just a matter of time before they come for our guns.

He writes in part,

The SCOTUS has now declared all healthcare, and marriage to be fundamental human rights. So much so, that it is now the job of the federal government to force them upon both you as an individual, and the state as law. Now, I don’t see either of these things in the United States Constitution.

Crazy thing about the Constitution, is that it actually does outline our rights, pretty expressly. As a matter of fact, one could argue that it’s the purpose of the document. Enumerated and all that jazz. Healthcare and gay marriage… isn’t in there. You know what is? Your right to own a gun.

As a matter of fact, according to the Constitution, that is one of the very few rights in which the states are not reserved the right to regulate entirely as they see fit. In case you haven’t read it, let me paste it for you below.

“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.”

Pretty cut and dry. Yet unlike marriage, unlike subsidized health Insurance, SCOTUS has allowed states to, in fact… INFRINGE! Hell, some states have made it pragmatically impossible to carry a weapon on your person. So clearly, when it comes to even using the Constitution as a guideline, the SCOTUS has jumped the shark.

Regardless of where you line up on same-sex marriage, or even if you personally want free healthcare, there is no arguing that the SCOTUS has displayed an unprecedented use of power when compared to the entirety of American history. There’s also no argument about the fact that the SCOTUS is leaning more and more to the left.

The left has been very, very clear on their ambitions to make guns harder and harder to access. For all citizens. Not just criminals. We know their playbook. I’m not saying that your guns will be taken away tomorrow, but that is the end-game.

What is beyond any shadow of a doubt however, is that the SCOTUS has now been given the power, to infringe on your right to bear arms. They could come down with some ruling next June requiring guns to be limited to some arbitrary loading capacity, rendering all of your firearms illegal. I’m not saying that they will, but for the first time in our adult lives, this is entirely within the realm of possibility.

We may be looking at the end of civilized society down the road, and do you want to be unarmed and defenseless, unable to buy a gun anymore, when that happens? Preppers will tell you that zombies are not the undead, they are how they expect humans to act when civilized society falls apart. The increasing civil unrest and spending is unsustainable. Don’t be caught unprepared – every family should have a gun now.
