The conversation goes something like this:
“We’ve got to do something!
What are we going to do!
I don’t know, but we’ve got to do something!
I know what we’ll do! Let’s ban the scary looking guns!
What about the 2nd Amendment?
Who cares, let’s do it! To hell with the Constitution!”
The current assault on the Constitution reminds me of the mob with lit torches marching through the countryside and woods, down to the lake, to hunt down Frankenstein. Emotion takes over, common sense is thrown out the window.
Isn’t there anyone, the mayor, the city manager, the city council, to slow down the run-away train and bring it to a stop? Who should do it? There is someone! His name rhymes with DiSanto, as in City Attorney Mike DiSanto. Attorneys love litigation, and DiSanto needs litigation like a fish needs water. Why would he recommend to drop litigation, it’s not his money that’s going to be wasted in a lost cause. It’s the tax payers money. DiSanto has no skin in the game. Moves like this insure job security for DiSanto. He’s the guy with the biggest torch leading the mob to certain defeat in the Supreme Court.
The Second Amendment reads as follows:
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
It can’t be more clear than that.
