Another Wrong Basic Premise

I just wrote about a wrong premise fueling the anti-gun fools' actions, and now here is another. Ayn Rand, the Objectivist philosopher, said, “If you see a contradiction, check your premises,” The contradiction in the linked story is that Americans don't have the right to express their religious beliefs in a public place, because of the Constitution. That involves a purposeful MISREADING of the clause in the Constitution. The Constitution merely states,  “The Congress shall make NO LAW regarding the ESTABLISHMENT of religion, or prohibiting the free expression thereof.”  NO LAW! The City council did both in banning this cross from a cemetery and were defeated in the next election because of it. You don't want to mess with Iowans. This situation highlights the way politicians MISREAD the Constitution in many ways, making unconstitutional laws—until they're “called to account.” Unfortunately, by then, the damage has already been done. They do it in their basic premise on gun control, that a LAW will make a CRIMINAL, who obeys NO laws, refrain from using his gun to victimize people. (Freedom Outpost)
