On his Friday HBO program, “Real Time” host Bill Maher said what many people on the left have been reluctant to say: that he opposes the Second Amendment guarantee of the right to bear arms.

Maher complained his side would not come out and say that, making the argument a “constant center-right debate.”

Then Bill should have his bodyguards turn in their Glocks, Sigs or whatever so that we all can congratulate him personally.

Then move to Amend it and do so in a Constitutionally legal way. Instead, they cheat.

Those on the left have an avenue to change things. Amend the constitution.

Perhaps we should declare the First Amendment is BS for idiotic left wing TV personalities.

The folks on the right are too afraid to say what needs to be said too. Loudmouth leftists like Maher should be thankful of that. maybe someday though.

I can’t remember if it was Jefferson, Adams, or Madison who stated that if a comedian in the 21st Century says that the 2nd Amendment is bullsh!t, then, by all means, it’s okay to ignore it!

Maher should seek to amend the Constitution and repeal the 2nd, then.

One would ask, does Bill Maher also despise the Swiss nation and the Swiss people? Because the Swiss are GREAT believers in the right, no, the DUTY of its citizens to keep and bear arms. And that small country is also one of the freest nations on earth, beholden to no other nation by alliances or “mutual defense” treaties.

An armed person is a free person, a truth that the founders of this nation recognized very quickly. When a majority or all citizens have arms readily available, it is difficult to enforce draconian “reforms” upon them by decree from the governing authority.

Swiss citizenship is conferred only upon those who are willing to fully and without reservation swear allegiance to the Swiss nation and uphold its duly constituted laws. Which means, you may be able to live in Switzerland for years as a resident alien, but have no right to vote, or to openly keep and bear arms, or to raise objections to the existing order of things. There is a special dispensation for the bearing of arms, extended to those non-citizens who have properly taken the training necessary for the care and maintenance of said arms, and for which there is compelling reason to possess arms.

Even during the Second World War, surrounded on all sides by other nations that believed in some form of totalitarian government, the Swiss were adamant in their refusal to in any way ally themselves with any other hegemony, maintaining a strict and uncompromising neutrality. When Hitler demanded the right to pass through Switzerland to send troops to Italy to defend Mussolini, the Swiss informed him they would dynamite all the road tunnels through the mountains, cause avalanches of rock to cascade down upon open roadways, and station their citizen-soldiers at the crest of the hills and behind fortified barricades to resist the movement of any Nazi troops within their country.

Hitler complied. Even he recognized a losing proposition.

The tools guaranteed by the second amendment should include a bayonet lug.

The liberation might run into Maher.

Maher might as well disarm himself physically, since he already obviously disarmed intellectually. Now he’s a matching set!

“Liberal”, “left”, “progressive” and just camouflage labels for COMMUNISTS.

Get the guns away from the people so they can be dominated.

The FASCISTS and COMMUNISTS sit shoulder to shoulder on the great circle of ideology...overpower the people, turn them into slaves of the state so that a few may rule.

Thanks, Bill. More of your comrades should come out and say what they really think.
