“Gun rights” as well as “gun ownership rights” are definitely things that exist thanks to the 2nd Amendment of the US constitution. In no uncertain terms, those rights are affirmed by the words “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Because of the liberal tendency to interpret things in a way that supports their whacko leftist agenda, the term “gun control rights” is now being floated, as if there is a Constitutional right to restrict gun ownership.
Earlier this week Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY) introduced a bill that would nullify all of the liberal states’ unconstitutional gun control laws. It would ban states from regulating firearms more strictly than the federal government does. The purpose of the bill was to put an end to the madness known as the NY SAFE Act, but it would also get rid of unreasonable gun control laws in California, Illinois, Maryland, and anywhere liberalism has destroyed the people’s fundamental rights.
One of those places is gun controlled Hawaii, which brags of having the 5th more stringent anti-gun laws on the books. In complaining that people of the state might actually be able to exercise their Constitutional rights, The Honolulu Civil Beat coined a new term with this headline: NY Congressman Wants To Take Away Hawaii’s Gun-Control Rights.
