Supreme Court Justice Breyer: The 2nd Amendment Was Just Meant To Appease The States

Supreme Court Justice Breyer has a very strange view of the Constitution. He thinks Founding Father James Madison just put in the 2nd Amendment to appease the states and get the Constitution signed. Therefore, the didn't really mean it and we can now impose regulations on guns. This story tells us a lot more about the twisted logic of liberals than it does the Constitution.

FOX News reported:
Breyer wrote the dissent and was joined by Justices John Paul Stevens, David H. Souter and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. He said historians would side with him in the case because they have concluded that Founding Father James Madison was more worried that the Constitution may not be ratified than he was about granting individuals the right to bear arms.

Madison “was worried about opponents who would think Congress would call up state militias and nationalize them. ‘That can’t happen,’ said Madison,” said Breyer, adding that historians characterize Madison’s priority as, “I’ve got to get this document ratified.”

Therefore, Madison included the Second Amendment to appease the states, Breyer said...

That being the case, and particularly since the Founding Fathers did not foresee how modern day would change individual behavior, government bodies can impose regulations on guns, Breyer concluded.
The last conclusion by Bryer is very telling. Liberals love to use the argument "the Founding Fathers did not foresee" how the US would change. Therefore, they can decide what they think is best. In the case of gun control, that is clearly not the case. Guns and people haven't changed that much since the Constitution was ratified.
