It is more than obvious in America that gun grabbers utterly despise the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Constantly they are seeking ways in which to undermine the fundamental right that is guaranteed to all American citizens.
Most attempts at restricting the right of the American people to keep and bear arms have been crushed over the past several years, and due to that fact gun grabbers are becoming more and more desperate in their arguments. Such is proven in the case of Bill Maher, with his most recent historically ignorant and raced obsessed anti-gun rant.
In the following video provided by Newsbusters, Maher actually states that Second Amendment was only included in the Constitution so southern states could effectively enforce the institution of slavery. Furthermore, MSNBC Steve Schmidt ridiculously claimed that “It is harder to buy cough medicine than it is to buy an AK-47 or 50 of them.”
Watch below, if you can stomach it:
Maher was actually citing a special annotated (and revised) version of the Constitution that had been published by The New York Times on July 2, ( and highly glorified by the Daily Kos) which stated that “the poison of slavery pervaded the Constitution … the Second Amendment was also intended to protect slaveholders, who used militias to keep a firm grip on their slaves.”
That piece further stated it was ridiculous to even think that the Second Amendment was intended for the people to resist government tyranny, but instead “was meant to guarantee the legality of a ‘well-regulated’ (that is, state-controlled) Militia to handle the states’ internal problems, especially the problems of a large slave population.”
Even though this argument is in no way new, it is obviously absurd, as one can see by the volumes of quotes by several of our founding fathers regarding the original intent behind the Second Amendment.
Virtually all of those quotes reiterate the fact that the Second Amendment was expressly intended to guarantee that the people of our nation were able to defend themselves against a tyrannical and oppressive government — with no mention of slavery mind you, save for that being the end result of a people left disarmed by their own government.
Personally I think Bill Maher is an idiot who doesn’t know jack about gun rights or the Second Amendment.
