We have heard some incredibly bizarre arguments against the 2nd Amendment during 2018, but I’m not sure any of them is nearly as asinine as the one that dropped today.

The left side of American politics is seething.  They have failed, again, to exploit the nation’s emotions in order to scarp the Second Amendment wholesale, and they are growing restless.

When it comes to the radical left who oppose Trump, your “resistance” and Antifa types, we have seen action against conservatives.  Riots at Berkeley, an assassination attempt, and a trial run at conservative genocide have all haunted our nation’s psyche in the Trump Era.  The anti-gun types, however, don’t seem to have the gall for that sort of maneuvering, preferring instead to confront conservatives through the buffer zone of the mainstream media.

Now, one democratic Senator is taking his anti-gun narrative to the next level, and using language that few Americans have ever thought could be applied to the right to bear arms.

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) declared on Saturday that he backs the “real” Second Amendment, rather than an “imaginary” version of the provision that he says is touted by gun rights advocates.

“I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment,” Murphy tweeted. “And the real #2A isn’t absolute. It allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.”

Murphy has been an outspoken advocate for stricter gun laws, particularly banning assault-style weapons like the AR-15, which has become a relatively common firearm in mass shootings.

Well, if the Constitution is now imaginary, then Senator Murphy has no right to even say such things on the internet.  Lock him up!

Unfortunately for Murphy, the Constitution is very real.  And salient.  And poignant.  And supreme.  In fact, if you take a good hard look at the way that this document is set up, it has the authority to negate new laws that fly in its face.  If something is not “pursuant to the Constitution”, it is invalid.

Is Senator Murphy invalid?  I hate to jump to conclusions, but the Constitution is pretty clear on this Chris.  Time to pack it up, I suppose.
