You’ve seen the 2nd Amendment come under fire before and you’ve even seen efforts to see it get changed…but have you ever seen anyone deny its existence and call it “imaginary”?
If not, you’re in for a real treat because that’s exactly what happened recently. And not with some random anti-gunner off the street, but with a high-profile politician.
As you’re probably already aware, there was recently a school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas. The savage attack killed 10 students and left many more injured.
The psychopath who carried out this attack was a 17 year old student who attended the high school. But rather than focus on the shooter and what’s causing these attacks to happen, gun grabbers are going after the 2nd Amendment.
One Democrat gun grabber who is very vocal about his views on gun control goes as far as to say that the 2nd Amendment is imaginary.
His name is Chris Murphy, a U.S. Senator from Connecticut, and here’s what he said on Twitter:
I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment.
And the real #2A isn’t absolute. It allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.
If you’re a gun owner who cares about the 2nd Amendment then this statement probably has you riled up…I know I got a little angry when I read it.
First of all, there is no “imaginary” 2nd Amendment. There is only the real 2nd Amendment…the words that are written in ink on the Constitution and continue to protect our gun rights to this very day.
The fact that this Senator wants to twist the meaning of the 2nd Amendment and “interpret” it differently than what it actually means is infuriating.
This all becomes even more ridiculous when you see that Chris Murphy is rallying against “assault rifles” when no such thing was even used in the Santa Fe shooting. Actually, the shooter used a pistol and a shotgun.
Senator Murphy was then joined by other gun grabbers clamoring for more gun control…
Senator Cory Booker, a Democrat from New Jersey, says: “Thoughts & prayers aren’t enough! We need action and legislation.”
Maggie Hanson, a Democrat from New Hampshire, says: “Congress must act to prevent these senseless acts of gun violence.”
David Cicilline, who made news on this site for sponsoring his own gun control bill, had this to say: “Every time there’s another mass shooting, I get more pissed off at Republicans in Congress. They are the reason nothing gets done to stop this.”
This could be a sign that gun grabbers are going to start focusing their attention more on the 2nd Amendment itself rather than going after guns individually.
