-- the White House has said that it's willing to bypass congress and use executive orders in fact they talked about nineteen of them yesterday to enact new gun control laws but.
Can present Obama really do that.
While keeping in line with the Second Amendment to our very own Fox News senior judicial analyst judge Andrew Napolitano challenge that idea standing with the constitution a stance that -- and squaring off.
With the New York.
Times for a it's it's coming to an idea yeah it I was surprised that I got Saturday morning and -- something -- that because the number of emails.
Vastly exceeded what they normally are at 7 o'clock on Saturday mornings thanks for the New York Times look at that your time to go and -- -- you -- they are they said -- -- what you said that got them going.
Here is the dirty little secret about the second man.
The Second Amendment was not written in order to protect your right to shoot.
It was written to protect your right to -- tyrants that -- for the government OK so.
That was just a little -- in the DC here for it Greta wire.
You know our colleague Greta ancestor -- -- producer walker cup of walk around the bureau saying -- Eric.
You want to say anything for granted -- they found and that's what I said but it was the subject of a piece that I had written for toxins that come in The Washington Times.
That day -- -- OK so explain.
Was not written to protect the rights of hunters because the people who wrote it already assumed -- that everybody had the right to hunt because that's the way a lot of them.
Gathered food for their families and for there -- businesses.
But they had just finished fighting a revolution against a tyrant king George the third.
And the mightiest army and navy known to the world at the time that of Great Britain.
And the only way they were able to do that was because they had the arms and armaments with which to fight the tyrant.
So to make sure that the new government here would not do.
The same thing to the the Americans here that -- British have done to the colonists they need certain that the government would not interfere.
What -- right to protect ourselves it's another one of those checks and bounces -- before somebody in the White House got crazy ideas.
About taking people's rights that person had to think twice these people I'm not gonna go quietly and they have the means with which to resist.
That's the whole purpose behind the second -- the nearly nine era politician saying it's for hunting.
That's code for I don't believe it's.
Second Amendment -- So the New York Times heard that little clip it's amazing that they watch Texas -- end here -- the quote that one of their -- had -- -- these extremists.
I guess you're talking -- you judge.
Make sensible reasonable gun control hard to discuss let alone achieve in this country because they -- the conversations away.
From common sense solutions on which both rational gun owners and non gun owners.
Can agree -- from.
Well look either either we have a Second Amendment or we don't.
The whole purpose of the constitution.
Was to preserve individual rights whether it's speech travel privacy or self defense.
From the overwhelming passion of the public right now the public as passionate about this.
Because we are still grieving over the horrific massacre something none of us ever thought would see in our lives that took place in new ten.
So the question is should law abiding citizens.
Lose a fundamental liberty.
Because of what some crazies among must have done.
We have almost always answer that question no we look out form prosecute the crazies we don't take -- rights away from those who who don't abuse them.
And -- -- it to go one step further did the founding fathers did when they wrote that Second Amendment -- Davies said the Rachel not tempted to.
-- to bear arms shall not be infringed upon.
Takes it one step further doesn't.
Well yes Erica and I appreciate you mentioning that it's really one of the clearest.
Parts of the entire constitution.
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed meaning the government shall not name that interfere with this the Supreme Court -- said.
In your own home in your backyard on your property you have an absolute right had to have a weapon real quickly because we started -- I think that the president talked about possibly nineteen executive orders.
People have disagreed with me on the show that he has ability to do that but now they're saying in nineteen exact what -- what can he do.
Well we need to see them we need to see exactly what he's kind of it would probably be limited -- well technically.
Theoretically -- -- -- according to law an executive order regulates the federal government's administration of the law.
So it can't target any individual can target the way the -- administer the law so he could say to the DEA once you start harassing gun dealers.
Make it more difficult for them to work to import order transport guns.
One of the worst things he might do this being discussed as he could say the EPA the environmental protection administration there's lead and bullets.
Let's start charging people more -- -- bullets because led impairs the atmosphere actually tried that in Chicago it was and it was defeated.
So once we see that list will know whether or not the president and this administration are faithful to their boats -- solemn -- to uphold the constitution.
Which includes the Second Amendment -- judge Andrew Napolitano who's now additive with the times.
Judge that's what what you know about.
