Josh Horwitz laughably accuses gun rights advocates of disregarding Constitution

According to Horwitz, in order to have "faith" in the Constitution, one must believe that a power hungry government can be thwarted in its desires to usurp the power of the people, simply because words on parchment say that it must not. That is, obviously, a ludicrous notion. The Constitution itself protects nothing, unless it is enforced.

The enforcers must be the people--us--and enforcement may require something stronger than harsh language. The Founders knew this--knew that, as Edward R. Murrow said, "A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves." A disarmed citizenry--a citizenry that allows itself to be disarmed--is indeed "a nation of sheep." That is what CSGV would have us be. [More]
