State Senator Claims Second Amendment “Given” by Misogynistic Slave Owners

From wikipedia.com, a campaign event. Megan Hunt is the Senator of District 8 in Nebraska. District 8 is a tight urban district near the center of Omaha.

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- In this Humanist article, Megan Hunt is described as an openly bi-sexual, atheist, Progressive.  She was born in 1986, so she is 35 years old.  Hunt recently gained notoriety for this tweet. From Twitter.com:

Owning a gun isn’t a “God-given right.” It’s a slave-owning, misogynistic founding father-given right. I’m not against 2a, but be real – the Constitution was written by people! Today I’m filibustering a bill that would allow concealed carry without training or a permit. #NELeg

It is hard to see how filibustering a bill that restores Second Amendment rights to Nebraska can be “not against 2a”, but Progressives are famous for changing the definition of words to make their arguments seem logical.

Senator Megan Hunt illustrates a profoundly different world view, with profoundly different assumptions about the nature of reality, then the majority of Americans.

Furthermore, she inserts a strawman argument;

“The Constitution was written by people!”

As far as I know, no one disputes the Constitution was written by people.

Notice Hunt irrationally restricts the Second Amendment as a right to “own a gun”. She conveniently eliminates the right to bear arms.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has written he doubts the right to bear arms was only meant to apply to the right to carry a rifle from the kitchen to the bedroom.

The philosophical basis for Hunt’s argument is pure Progressivism. One of the core beliefs of Progressivism is that the Natural Law theory is false. Hunt seems to believe Natural law theory depends on the existence of God.

There is no doubt a Christian worldview was the basis for much of the theory of American governance.

However, Natural law does not depend on the existence of a Christian God, or of God in general.

It depends on the nature of man and the nature of reality. Progressives do not believe in human nature. One of their core beliefs is that humans can be made to fit whatever niche Progressives create for them.

Natural law theory is that humans have rights that governments should respect, because of the existence of human nature.  Those rights consist of free speech, thought, and exchange of ideas, as well as a natural right to property and self-defense. In Natural law theory, one’s own body is owned by the individual.

Progressives reject Natural law, in large part, because it places limits on what a government may legitimately do.

The Second Amendment derives from the Natural law theory of the right of self-defense, as well as the necessity of restraining the power of government. Part of that restraint is to have countervailing force possessed by the bulk of the people being governed.

It is part of Natural law theory that a constitution and a body of law is a contract between the government and the people being governed.

Progressives deny the theory of a social contract between the government and the people. Instead,  what a government can do is only limited by the power they have to implement their schemes.

Progressivism has no core principles or permanent objectives. The only core objective appears to be obtaining and holding political power.

Government control over guns is in Progressivism’s DNA.

I cant put my true thoughts here about this disgusting B***H, we will just leave it at that…….

Shouldn’t that H in her last name be a C ?????

JSNMGC

What are your thoughts regarding Kevin E. Spencer?

He lobbied against the referenced legislation that Hunt voted against.

Do you find it interesting that Dean has never written an article about the many, many law enforcement agencies that have lobbied against permitless carry and SAPA legislation?

https://www.policechiefsne.com/about/

JSNMGC

The Omaha Police Officers Association, the Lincoln Police Department, and the Nebraska Police Chiefs’ Association lobbied against this legislation.

there are very few in leo community willing to look at the bad ,they always say its just that one ,or that one its like a mother that says why did you have to kill my baby he was such a good boy……robing an armored car killing the currier she sees nothing wrong police are the same way mother could have saved the son police could stop the bad police but the blinders are on tight

let the down votes begin……then go look in the mirror you all know this is true

JSNMGC

Happens all the time here.

She’s a Democrat.

She’s not elderly.

She’s bisexual.

She’s an atheist.

What about all the Republican, elderly, heterosexual, God-fearin’, enforcers who lobbied against this legislation?

Just read the TITLE — ALMOST fell off my chair with LAUGHTER!!
This WOMAN needs to go take a REAL CLASS LESSON on the TRUE Constitution and the FEDERALIST PAPERS which EXPLAINS the REASONING behind much of the Constitution!

Russn8r

Rs need to roll over these commies. Best way to save swing states: Jam the whole agenda down their throats ASAP. Lefties can move to Cali-NY-IL. Make states like Nebraska havens for sane citizens fleeing to where they’re appreciated & their vote matters. Leftists won’t go to “fascist” R states that man up & implement true social & economic conservatism. See Florida. 1st time R voter majority ever just this year. Refugees are not on balance bringing leftist politics to Florida.

Notice, Sen. Megan Hunt said, “I’m not against the Second Amendment”. It’s called “playing lip service”. From the French Revolution all the way to now, nobody does rhetoric and narrative better than the Left.

Megan Hunt needs to understand some of the issues her party has advocated in the past.

I quote
” Megan Hunt is member of the political party that owns the legacy of slavery, segregation, the KKK, Jim Crow, Eugenics, Gun Control and other race based atrocities.”

There ARE/WERE some VERY BRIGHT CONSERVATIVE Teachers in the field of cultivating minds on HOW TO LOGICALLY THINK — FOR YOURSELF instead of the current crop that only teaches “what to think – indoctrination”.

I would love to see the education taken back by ,people like this, now there are just private schools that are islands fighting an up hill battle some even have to fight state regulators for certification of their curricula. truth is power and they dont want to share

Arny

I have watched over the past 3 years private schools fall for the propaganda. The same churches affiliated with these schools promoted it. So much for having faith in God their creator. I suppose he comes after masking up ? I am by no means a spiritual person. I attended these schools as a youth. And was taught their faith. That faith which does not exist so much these days. I didn’t see any fighting. lol

I have to disagree that the natural law does not rely upon the existence of God. Look at the creatures on Earth that do not tie themselves to their creator, their God, such as sharks, rats, and democrats. Unfettered by the strictures of the Divine, they take what they want when they want it and will kill anyone who gets in their way. The fact is that, absent “God says so” there is no natural answer to the question “is it okay to take stuff my neighbor has?” Absent God, all we have is natural selection, which would answer the… Read more »

Throw this one at her. She, along with others, contend that our rights are granted to us by government documents, which were written by people. Example #1: If you’re a homeowner, and you find evidence of termites in your house, you call an exterminator who promptly puts your house under a tent and gasses them to death by the millions. Example #2: If you’re a poultry farmer, and the government finds that your flock of chickens has avian influenza, they will slaughter millions of your birds. Example #3: In the 1940’s the Third Reich sent millions of Jews, Slavs, Gypsies,… Read more »

Where Ms. Hunt is fundamentally wrong is actually easy to see. It’s based upon the Liberal belief that the Constitution and Bill of Rights limits We the People. The Bill of Rights specifically limits the Government, not the People. Both the Federalist and Anti-Federalist essays make that point clear as water. That was the BOR’s entire reason for its creation and Ratification by the States. It’s also one of the few early documents that refers to the people regardless of gender, race and creed, as it applies to all of the People. Historically, Gun Legislation enacted by various States after… Read more »

I am tired of hearing that the 2nd amendment is there to protect our first amendment right. What our government is doing to the truckers and did to the churches with covid is proof that this statement has become a fallacy. The numbers should be switched. Our second should become our first because without the gun we are powerless to do anything. Right now, though we still have guns, the tyrants are winning while we are using what free speech the government via technocrakkkts allow to no avail.

LOL a’int it though?

Raconteur

Dean made a very good point: the 2nd Amendment is not just about guns. It states specifically: “…the right to keep and bear ARMS…”. Were the founders and the authors of the Constitution imprecise in their choice of words? Were they ignorant of the exact meanings of firearms and arms? Megan Hunt needs to be locked in a cage with nothing but the Federalist Papers and the 1787 Constitutional Debates, until she can express a true understanding of our founding documents.

Another Brainwashed libtard! She wants to become a slave owner by taking away the second amendment!

As long as we call them “Second Amendment rights” we feed into people like her, and arguments like hers. Whether or not the Constitution or any of the amendments to it were written by and for slave owners is irrelevant. The right to self defense, and the right to own the means for self defense were discussed at length by legal scholars, including Locke and Blackstone, long before the American revolution, and certainly before the Declaration of Independence mentioned the existence of creator endowed rights. Our calling them Second Amendment rights obscures their history, and implies that they somehow are… Read more »

MP71

Well said!, from time to time an anti gunner like Bloomturd will grudgingly and dismissively concede that the 2A “gives” us the right (quickly followed by that 3 letter word BUT). Their choice of words and use of language is quite deliberate. Anything that is “given” to us by words on paper can be taken away by more words on paper. The constitution gives us nothing, it recognizes natural rights and places limits on the power of government.

LOl, it took me a minute to figure out what a carpet muncher might be. Too funny. Yep you are right. It always takes a professional opinion in order to determine what’s right. I can’t figure out why some population that thinks it is so dam smart is so dependent on someone else to tell them what is right or a study to make a decision for something that only takes common sense to determine.

Dean – you hit the nail on the head: “Instead, what a government can do is only limited by the power they have to implement their schemes.”

Our politicians today want control.

It started with Robert Morris, John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton, even before the American Revolution was over. Please see “The Quartet” by Joseph Ellis.

It’s interesting how they apply one standard to one group of people working to infringe on rights and make one excuse after another for another group of people who are working on the exact same goal.

They’re worried more people are going to catch on (some people pick it up quickly, but others take decades to critically evaluate information and change their views).

Tackleberry

“There are three and only three ways to reform our Congressional legislation, familiarly called, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box”. – Fredrick Douglas

These past several years have shown us that none of these institutions have much integrity remaining. Where does that leave us? Add to that, with few exceptions, our parties are only giving us the choice of which party hacks they are willing to let us elect. Most are little more than a degree off from one another and we have only polish and personality by which to choose.
