What Politifact has done, albeit unintentionally, is admitted that Miller is soaring over the target and they’re going to throw everything they can at him to knock him down.
“Miller’s mailer muddies the waters, because increasing gun ownership regulations is not the same thing as scrapping the Second Amendment entirely,” Politfact claims in a Thursday hit piece on the Alaska Senate campaign, where conservative Joe Miller is trying mightily to upset the establishment in next Tuesday’s primary election. “The ad is wrong when it suggests 20 million voters can repeal part of the Constitution’s Bill of Rights. We rate it False.”
The ad does not say the Second Amendment will be repealed, which is what the thrust of the Politifact stretch attempts to indict Miller on. Nowhere does he claim the Constitution will be amended to repeal the Second Amendment. Indeed, as anyone with a basic understanding of unalienable rights and settled law could tell the “Authorized Journalists,” assuming they’d listen and care, “The very text of the Second Amendment implicitly recognizes the pre-existence of the right and declares only that it ‘shall not be infringed’ … This is not a right granted by the Constitution. Neither is it in any manner dependent upon that instrument for its existence.”
What Miller says is “”If 20 million illegals vote, you can kiss the Second Amendment goodbye.” That’s clear to any informed gun owners and pro-immigration sanity activist, and is demonstrated by all credible observations, not to mention the eagerness of the Obama administration to make it so. The “pathway to citizenship” being enabled by a Democrat/Republican establishment alliance will result in an electorate with the votes to fundamentally alter what legislatures will enact and courts will uphold in the name of “compelling state interests,” effectively neutering and gutting the right.
