Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) declared on Saturday that he backs the "real" Second Amendment, rather than an "imaginary" version of the provision that he says is touted by gun rights advocates.

"I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment," Murphy tweeted. "And the real #2A isn’t absolute. It allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only - to kill as many people as fast as possible."

Did a search, no response so just in case, here it is again. So, senator from dumbassistan, would you mind producing YOUR copy of the REAL 2nd amendment? You provide that and someone will provide a copy of a Funk & Wagnells so you can look up INFRINGED. Fidiot. Be honest enough to say you assclowns want to totally disarm law abiding citizens of all their firearms.

Sen. Chris Murphy is a perfect example of why the Second Amendment is so necessary to the security of a free state.

Chris Murphy and the left discuss
What’s real and what’s not.
It doesn’t matter
When Trump is there to veto.

This guy must be a “living, breathing Constitution” leftist, one that holds that the pen in the hand of a commie activist judge decides on the rights we have. No thanks. His version of “real” seems to me to be a deceptive euphemism. Libtards make me puke.

Muskets and cannon, the assault weapons of the late 1700s.

I’m telling ya, electing illiterates to Congress is a mistake. We need politicians who can read the document. This one can’t.

ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only - to kill as many people as fast as possible.

Including in the defense and protection of ones self and country. Not seeing the problem. Civilians should have access to "reasonable" protection tools and not just the ones the gun-grabbing left wants to allow. That choice is above their pay grade; it belongs to us.

The real 2nd Amendment was put in place to protect the rights of citizens from potential tyrants like Murphy.

Uh, I’m pretty sure it’s more of a comprehension thing.

The Left, including this clown, HATES the Constitution and calls “imaginary” the plain text of the second amendment that forbids federal interference with the pre-existing right to keep and bear arms, while calling “real” their own fanciful pro-government theory unsupported by the Constitution.

Election time is coming. Turn up the Leftist double-talk and lies.

Same as it ever was.

His “real” Second Amendment must be in the same Constitution where the left finds a woman’s right to murder her unborn baby.

Awesome! Senator Murphy, you've inspired me. I support the real 1st Amendment, not the imaginary 1st Amendment. And the #1A isn't absolute. It allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban the media from publishing and broadcasting the names of school shooters because that results in copycats who do more killing. How'd I do?

“And the real #2A isn’t absolute.”

Yep, when the Constitution says that the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed, that obviously means that the right of the people to bear arms shall be infringed.

Next up, the right of free speech does not necessarily involve the right to free speech.

RIP KKK Grand Wizard Sen Robert Byrd who always carried a pocket version of the US Constitution in his suit. Although he was associated with the wrong political party and pro slavery, I miss those type representing "WE THE PEOPLE" in the District of Corruption. The corruption has been allowed to fester so long it has infiltrated every nook and cranny of our Government. It will take decades cleaning this up and the GOP will not be in power long enough to complete the job & some rinos simply will not participate, AND the GOP refuses to CRUSH the enemy, instead always wanting to cross the aisle in civility and make a deal.

The two-party system is destroying America. Democrats and Republicans are in a death match and the American people are caught in the middle.
