On the Second Amendment, Kansas points the way
Opponents of federal gun control won a victory in the Senate recently. But without a doubt, Congress will pass some sort of gun-control legislation down the road. And that act will certainly violate the Constitution.
Our founding document does not delegate firearm-regulating power to Congress or the president. Even minus the Second Amendment, the feds possess no authority to ban any type of gun or magazine, create a gun registry or implement a national system of background checks.
And the Second Amendment further restricts federal power. “…the right of the people…shall not be infringed.”
Infringe: to reduce or impair in any way.
