Commas; they’re a pesky thing. As any literate American knows, the 2nd Amendment is ripe with them. Well, it only has a few, but It’s enough to throw our left leaning brothers and sisters through a mental assault like the actual assault in Orlando where they pretended it was about something that it really wasn’t. A registered Democrat pledges allegiance to Abu Bakar Al Baghdadi and the Islamic State – repeatedly, and with witnesses – and as far as the left is concerned it was a registered Republican, Christian just oppressing the gays again with a gun. This same logic applies to the 2nd Amendment. It’s because of this logic that instead of uniting and fighting against the enemy (who attacked us all in Orlando), we have to fight against our own and defend the rights that were once upon a time inalienable.
Enter the Democrats and their inability to acknowledge the most basic of truths such as the common comma. While there is no absolute rule on where to place a comma, there is an absolute rule on the purpose of a comma. From our friends at owl.com;
Commas – to separate independent clauses when they are joined by any of these seven coordinating conjunctions: and, but, for, or, nor, so, yet.
Where the left and the right seem to fork apart from each other is on the concept of an independent clause. An independent clause is what we refer to as a sentence. The comma joins two independent clauses – or two sentences – and merges them before the end where the period is located. This is a very important concept that every American needs to grasp. After all, our liberty is at stake. I’ll give you an example.
Sally went to the mall, and then she’s going to dinner.
You see, Sally didn’t go to the mall to get dinner. The comma indicates two separate activities. Sally went to the mall and then she’s going to get dinner. If I wanted to indicate that both activities are one and the same I would remove the comma and the conjunction and the sentence would read, Sally went to the mall to get dinner. See the difference? I hope you do. I’ll give you one last example from our beloved Constitution.
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
Did you notice that there are not one, not two, not three, but four clauses in this one Amendment? There are four separate subjects referenced and separated by very distinct and very deliberate commas. Specifically, the subjects “militia” and “people” are separated by those pesky commas, meaning these are two different subjects. This is all of course all the sarcasm my furious fingers can smash onto the keyboard (and it’s very therapeutic).
Our friends on the other side of the aisle know full and well what every amendment in the Bill of Rights states and what their intended meaning is, and that’s exactly why they hate the Bill of Rights. The 2nd Amendment is the most hated because it is standing in the way of a complete state-run utopia where every child has a unicorn and we can all eat as much chocolate as we like, with abortions on demand and without apology while guns are banned because guns kill people, and you’re allowed to euthanize granny because her best days are behind her and she’s just draining your time and resources.
Never surrender rights. Especially to the American left.
