The Bill of Rights is a limitation on government.

Nowhere in the Bill of Rights is there a limitation on the people.

That's it in a nutshell. It took from 1787-December 15, 1791 to hammer that out

And that is made perfectly clear in the preamble: "THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution."

U.S. Archives BOR

It is shocking and disgusting to me how so called "jurists" and "constitutional scholars" ignore the plain written language that clearly lays out the intent of the BOR.


"There are no secrets about the world of nature. There are secrets about the thoughts and intentions of men."

The 2nd Amendment is not about hunting or target shooting....

Newt is an incredible smart man with an amazing grasp of history and an ability to paint the picture of that history with his words.

Great speech.





Do, Or do not. There is no try.
