Block President's Executive Orders Regarding 2nd Amendment

Everyone is deeply sadden over what happened in the town of NewTown, CT. I don't blame the citizens of that town and others demanding to have stricter gun control, because this is something that should never happen in any lifetime. Even the lost of 1 life is too much and it don't matter if that life is young,old, different colors, disabilities etc. NO ONE SHOULD HAVE THERE LIFE ENDED EARLY!!!!.. I can't know how that families of those who lost a family member but i have friends that as daughters and sons at those ages and i would go to war with those people that would hurt those kids.

I think its unconstitutional for a president to use executive orders to trample on the 2nd amendment.

I personally think that these new laws that president Obama put in place is going to hurt a lot more people then help them because there is a lot of people that count on there weapons to hunt, show and more personally protection. Let's face it because of the budget cuts and debt of the states and Federal government to raise the debt ceiling or instead of that balance out a budget so they can put more police officers on the streets.

The Reading of the Second Amendment To the United States Constitution

The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights. The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess and carry firearms.[1]

In 2008 and 2010, the Supreme Court issued two landmark decisions officially establishing this interpretation. In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia[1][2] and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. In dicta, the Court listed many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession as being consistent with the Second Amendment.[3] In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government.[4]
