2nd Litmus Test
So I rallied to life a debate with the publication of “2nd Guessing”, so herein it is time to add fuel to the fire. But before exploring the ramifications of the publication and how it may define the “Right to Bear Arms”, most of those that commented on the “Guessing” did show the true colors of “Democracy” from the “Left & Right”, none of that bashing which indicates that we can reason our expectations without “verbal harm”. So, this “Litmus Test” of the 2nd Amendment Right finds a wind-forward to January 20th, 2017 and Rick Perry is being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. And his first order of business is to calm and quell an uprising in Texas that has boiled somewhat out-of-control over the Jade Helm military exercises - which began in earnest in 2015 and has since then steadily increased in troop size and duration. Many Texans held a belief that the exercises were condoned as an attempt to marshal in martial law and since then have taken to action supported by arms to break away from the “Union” through secession. So now Rick Perry, who was behind the “Lone Horn” state as a governor, now he resides in the “Oval Office” and is Commander-in-Chief. So he meets with his cabinet and finds that the secession of Texas would harm the national security of the United States, due that state's oil & gas infrastructure, gulf ports and other things required to keep America fit. So he makes a decision to “STOP” the secession efforts by exercising his Constitutional privilege under Article II – Section 2 “Presidential Powers”. “The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States. With that, he signs a declaration that orders the Texas “Militia” into service, this “service” requirement as a ways and means to show the citizens who is the boss. Now according to Constitutional scholars, as it is written today anybody that exercises that “Right to Bear Arms” does so freely under the auspices of the “Militia” so included as an all-important piece of the 2nd Amendment Right. The “Right” is accomplished and defended by definition of a “Well Regulated Militia”. So, all gun owners are required to show up at the state capital to get their marching orders from the Commander-in-Chief – in efforts to show support against the secession rebellion! You can't stay at home with that loaded gun, as that also would be a violation of the 3rd Amendment: “No Soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the Owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law”, as it could be construed that it was not “Peace” but “War” or in between so law would be required to hang out at home with your load. And for those that don't show in an effort to boycott this mandatory “Service” with one's own arms? Well it is called “contempt” and finds evidence of “Treason”. And if the Texas “Militia” decided to deny and boycott Perry's order, then the Chief sends in the Jade Helm brigades, the shooting begins. In the end, the “Militia” would be forced to surrender, your weapons please...So yes, the Commander-in-Chief by virtue the Constitution plays an important role in “gun ownership” when push comes to shove. So take this scenario to heart when you visit “Thomas Crapper” and struggle through a good dump, as maybe some may find the outcome belief that the existing “Constitution” dumps on them!
