St. Louis firm threatens to sue over 'Second Amendment Preservation Act'

Newman's Huffington Post biography states that he challenged Missouri's concealed carry law (with a notable lack of success, obviously, but was still "named one of the top 10 lawyers in the state that year for that effort"), and that "[f]or the past 15 years he has lectured throughout Missouri about the Second Amendment." Between that and his law school position, that's a whole lot of lying in service to the forcible citizen disarmament agenda. [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend.

The US Constitution never "granted" any rights to anyone. The Declaration of Independence said that people are endowed by their creator with rights, and that governments exist to protect those rights. Thus, the Bill of Rights, including the Second Amendment, does not give you a right to own weapons, or to freedom of speech, or freedom of religion. It officially recognizes rights that you already had. It is basically a set of limitations on the government's authority, not a written permission slip for the people. This shows why there is no basis for communication with the leftists. They think that the government is God, and they want to be subjects, not citizens.

Newman shows a lack of understanding of the Ninth and Tenth Amendments, never mind the Second. The Founders did not pretend that the Constitution listed all rights. Under the Ninth Amendment, you can't claim that a right does not exist on the grounds that the Constitution did not enumerate (or "grant") it. And the Tenth states that the government does not have power not specifically granted to it. It is the government, not the people, that must be "granted" rights.
