Madeleine Morgenstern reports at The Blaze:
Cpl. Joshua Boston, the U.S. Marine whose scathing open letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) over proposed new gun control legislation went viral, again vowed not to abide by any new law requiring him to register his firearms.
“Whatever happens happens. I have a right granted to me by the Second Amendment in our bill of rights and it says ‘shall not be infringed,’” Boston said Saturday on CNN. “Unconstitutional laws aren’t laws.” (emphasis added)
Make sure you watch the video clip included in Morgenstern's report, where the Marine explains why, even if, as the CNN anchor states, "The law is the law if it becomes law, and you're just willing to break it."
The Marine has a point: The authority of the federal government rests upon its sworn fidelity to the U.S. Constitution, which was devised to protect the rules of liberty set forth in the Declaration of Independence.
A federal official, such as Dianne Feinstein, is not authorized to pass laws that violate the U.S. Constitution, including the right to bear arms, a right that recognizes the need to protect a free people against the danger of a monopoly of governmental power in the hands of the few, as is the case in Washington, D.C., today.
Unconstitutional "laws" are acts of tyranny, even if passed by people wearing suit and ties. Such "laws" may be "legal" in the sense of an imposed dictate from an extremist power structure in Washington, but they lack legal Constitutional authority.
Unconstitutional government is outlaw government and goes to the heart of why the Founders insisted on the Second Amendment.
Tyranny prefers an opposition unable to defend itself. "In government we trust" is a death wish.
