    Jeb: The 10th Amendment Can Trump The 2nd Amendment


    "Presidential candidate Jeb Bush told Stephen Colbert Tuesday that gun control — including but not limited to ramped up mental health background checks — should be left up to the individual states."

    COLBERT: If mental health checks are opposed by the NRA, how do you fight back?

    BUSH: I think that you do it at the state by state level. This is the greatness of our country that — tell you what. Vermont is a lot different. Vermont is actually the most pro-gun state probably in the country, believe it or not, but New York City is a lot different than rural Florida, and vice versa. Why would you want to impose national gun laws on top of every circumstance of this country.

    COLBERT: Well, the right to have an individual firearm to protect yourself is a national document, in the Constitution, so shouldn’t that also be applied national —


    BUSH: No. Not necessarily… There’s a 10th amendment to our country, the Bill of Rights has a 10th amendment that says powers are given to the states to create policy, and the federal government is not the end all and be all. That’s an important value for this country, and its an important federalist system that works quite well.

    Good ole Jeber's the Statist,Wonder,RINO,what else would one expect from him.
    That’s the whole point of the Bill of Rights. It’s an enumeration of our specific rights that the federal government AND the states must respect. If the 2nd Amendment did not exist… then his 10th Amendment argument would make sense. SJ 40

    Holy crap, man....

    Without clicking on and reading the linked article, it sounds like Jeb doesn't get the fact that what is clearly spelled out in The Bill of Rights must be respected by all States.

    This and his stance on illegal immigration will exclude him from the white house.

    Jeb "Rube" Bush. The Waterhead child that sat in the front seat of the short bus on the way to the "special" school. Heaven help us if America elects him to govern us.

    Prior to incorporation, I'd have agreed with him. But he's a few years behind the times now.

    Sadly most of the spoon-fed low information voters watching probably think he's right. That's what worries me.

    What is a "mental health check"? Sounds a lot like "immigration reform."

    Another Bush family scumbag quoting the BoR as if they know anything about it.

    RIF. Reading is fundamental. Dumbass Jeb needs to read the 10th out loud and see if he can comprehend what it actually says and means.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't mean what he said it means.

    By saying it's up to the states, he is essentially saying the Bill of Rights really doesn't mean anything. The Bill of Rights, to me, is a list of things the government cannot do. The 2nd: The government cannot deny an individual the right to have a firearm. The 10th: The federal government cannot take away powers that belong only to the States. Only a spineless politician would make up a story about the 10th amendment trumping the 2nd.

    Jeb, those are my God given rights dammit! Don't twist them into something convenient for your benefit.

    Jeb will probably backtrack and says that he thought Colbert was talking about Chinese KungPao chicken.

    LOL

    He's actually correct. The 2A was supposed to restrain the fedgov only. The states and the people retained the power to regulate arms.

    The fed was not only denied the power to do so, but the 2A explicitly prohibits it
