Did Obama’s Statement Support the 2nd Amendment?

Obama’s recent statement that AK-47’s belong on the battlefield demonstrates his SUPPORT for the 2nd Amendment and Americans right to purchase and own such weapons.  At this point you are thinking: “This dude is crazy!”  Allow me to ‘splain:

In a commentary posted by John Whitehead back in Dec. of 2011 he states:

“As Senator Lindsay Graham recently remarked as an explanation for his support of legislation allowing for the indefinite detention of Americans, “Is the homeland the battlefield? You better believe it is the battlefield.”

America has indeed become the new battleground in the war on terror. In light of this, you can rest assured that there will be no restoration of the civil liberties jeopardized by the USA Patriot Act and other equally subversive legislation. Instead, those in power will continue to sanction ongoing violations of our rights, relying on bureaucratic legalese to sidestep any concerns that might be raised. The National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, which was passed by the Senate with a vote of 93 – 7, is a perfect example of this. Contained within this massive defense bill is a provision crafted by Democrat Charles Levin and Republican John McCain which mandates that anyone suspected of terrorism against the United States be held in military custody indefinitely. This provision extends to American citizens on American territory.”

An article published at RT in Nov. of 2011 makes the same point: America is now the battlefield.

“The United States Senate is set to vote this week on a bill that would categorize the entire USA as a “battlefield,” allowing law enforcement duties to be dished out by the American Military, who in turn could detain any US citizen as a war criminal — even coming into their own homes to issue arrests.

The National Defense Authorization Act regularly comes before Congress for changes and additions, but the latest provision, S. 1867, proves to be the most powerful one yet in raping constitutional freedoms from Americans. Move over, Patriot Act. Should S. 1867 pass, lawmakers could conjure the text to keep even regular citizens detained indefinitely by their own military.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a supporter of the bill, has explicitly stated that the passing of S. 1867 would “basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield” and could lead to the detention of citizens without charge or trial, writes Chris Anders of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Washington office.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H) sits on the same side of the aisle and agrees wholeheartedly. “America is part of the battlefield,” says the lawmaker.

America’s Military is already operating in roughly 200 countries, dishing out detention and executions to citizens of other nations. As unrest erupts on the country’s own soil amid a recession, economic collapse and protests in hundreds of cities from coast-to-coast, is it that much of a surprise that lawmakers finally want to declare the US a warzone?”

 Yes, America has become the battlefield.  And Obama’s statement that such weapons belong on the battlefield should be taken as a warning to all Americans to do whatever necessary to retain their right to bear arms. AMERICA IS THE BATTLEFIELD. We have heard this from our own legislators and it is demonstrated by their actions. Therefore, Obama’s statement that weapons such as the AK-47 belong on the battlefield may be taken as his support for the right of the people to bear arms and maybe as a call to arms.
