I have a comprehensive understanding of the Constitution (in practice and in theory). Some of this forum and in our country vehemently support certain elements of the Constitution that fit their narrative, while they conveniently ignore others. With all due respect to your founding fathers, they were operating and drafting rule, policy and law in a time many many years ago. They had no way of being able to extrapolate the actions of society that we live in today which would necessitate a revisit of and insertion of common-sense law more befitting of current times. Times have changed since the Constitution and Amendments were drafted. Would you agree?With all due respect, JCJ, you're clueless of Amendment II in its entirety.
What part of Article VI PG 2 of the United States Constitution is causing you difficulty?
Article VI, PG 2, United States Constitution:
"This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding."
No law is valid if it contradicts the Constitution of the United States of America; well, that's how our Founding Fathers intended it to work.
