“… the people are confirmed by the next article in their right to keep and bear their private arms”

Article on the Bill of Rights
Barack Obama has appointed two strongly anti-gun justices to the US Supreme Court. One of them committed perjury in her confirmation hearings, saying that gun rights under the Heller and McDonald case were “settled law,” and she would conform. She then ruled exactly the opposite on the first case she reviewed.
If Obama is re-elected, he will appoint hundreds of anti-constitutional federal judges at the District, Appeals and Supreme Court levels. Heller and other Second Amendment civil rights cases before the current Supreme Court have all been 5-4 votes.
The next President will most likely appoint as many as 3 more SCOTUS justices in four years. I expect Obama to appoint his BFF Attorney General Eric Holder.
Oh, and if President Obama is re-elected, his gun control efforts will no longer be, in his words, “under the radar.”
During a Fannie Mae forum in 1998, then-senator Barack Obama said, “The vast majority of Americans would like to see serious gun control,” and noted that “it does not pass. Why does it not pass? It doesn’t pass because there is this huge disconnect between what people think and what legislators think and are willing to act upon.”
Wake up America!
