Perhaps that would mean something or compel something somewhere else in the world but not here where the government is confined and limited by a Constitution like ours.

If the Constitution can be said to do one thing it is to frustrate and render impotent the ignorant, emotional whims of "the majority" to use the government to act against our original, fundamental rights:


"The very purpose of the Bill of Rights was to withdraw certain subjects from the vicissitudes of political controversy, to place them beyond the reach of majorities and officials and to establish them as legal principles to be applied by the courts. One's right to life, liberty, and property, to free speech, a free press, freedom of worship and assembly, and other fundamental rights may not be submitted to vote they depend on the outcome of no elections."

West Virginia State Bd. of Ed. v. Barnette, 319 U.S. 624, 638 (1943)



I say let the Democrat ignoramuses work themselves into a frenzy writing Bills that will never become law. They have legislative blue-balls, you are correct on that, and they are compelled to act -- not so much in the public interest but to poke a stick in the eye of US gun owners and especially, the NRA.

The Democrats have nothing but spite and hate motivating them.
