Is the U.S. Constitution equivalent to the Bible?

It remains inexplicable that the most advanced country in the world honors a document written in 1789 as if it was handed down from God like the Ten Commandments.

Those wise men that wrote the United States Constitution recognized that the basic law they created might need to be amended as the world evolved. They provided for that situation in Article V. Despite that ability the conservatives on the Supreme Court and elsewhere in our nation defend the idea “that the meaning of the constitution does not change or evolve over time, but rather that the meaning of the text is both fixed and knowable.  An originalist believes that the fixed meaning of the text should be the sole guide for a judge when applying or interpreting a constitutional provision.” Source of quotation

Thus we are all bound to the idea that our right to bear arms has no limits. Anyone can buy and own a gun. The NRA strongly advocates this belief in spite of the continuing loss of life caused by the deranged. They oppose all forms of weapons registration and the names of people who own them.

Thus on this fall day a high school student in Washington State killed one classmate and seriously injured three others before taking his own life. Meanwhile two Northern California deputies are dead another officer and a civilian were injured by another mad man.

I am quite sure there were other shootings today.

We all just change the television channel or block it out of our mind. Most people just say that is the way it is in America.

If it happens to someone in our family we cry, pray, and try to forget.

MOST OF US DO NOT HAVE THE COURAGE TO SAY “ENOUGH.” CERTAINLY NOT OUR ELECTED OFFICALS. THEY TOO ARE AFRAID OF THE NRA.

  1. Very well said. In fact we do not have a surgeon general because of his thought that gun violence is a matter of health. How many more have to die?

  2. >Sandy Hook – 20-year-old Adam Lanza fatally shot 20 children and 6 adult staff members in December 2012. Lanza was diagnosed with mental issues as early as first grade in school.
    >Isla Vista (Santa Barbara) – 22 year old Elliot Rodger killed six people and injured thirteen others before committing suicide. According to his family’s attorney and a family friend, Rodger had seen multiple therapists since he was eight years old.

    So the answer is there is no limit to the number who will die. In a nation that prefers watching a list of murder and mayhem dramas than any other form of entertainment what can you expect?

    *NCIS
    *Castle
