The same senator who admitted lying to Sandy Hook families to get them to come to Washington in order to have them lobby for votes on unconstitutional gun confiscation legislation, is now claiming that if you want a high-capacity magazine for your gun, then you must be “arming against the government.”
Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT), a virtually unknown senator until the Sandy Hook incident, has conspired with gun grabbing senators Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ) to co-sponsor Rep. Elizabeth Esty’s (D-CT) unconstitutional bill that would limit magazine capacity to only 10 rounds across the nation. This seems to be right in line with the Sandy Hook Commission, whose recommendations for Connecticut were completely without thought to the Constitution.
Murphy pushed the bill only hours after an Army veteran was arrested for allegedly threatening to shoot up the Capitol building.
“Think of the damage that someone could do in the U.S. Capitol with 30 rounds,” Murphy said on Thursday….
The issue isn’t the Capitol building. It’s pretty secure, guarded by men with lots of high capacity magazines. One could question the Connecticut Senator if the American public believes its government is arming against them. They’ve already shown their hand doing this on various occasions already….
In fact, the Second Amendment is clear that what these representatives are engaging in is illegal and criminal.
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.
Nowhere in the Constitution does it give any authority to the federal government to write any law that restricts or regulates arms of any kind to the American people.
While many will point to the militia in the first half of the Second Amendment, the second part of it is aimed at “the right of the people,” and that right, the right to keep and bear arms, is not to be infringed.
