Rep. Duncan on U.S. Gun Rights: ‘We Live In a Republic, Not a Dictatorship’

Posted on: January 10th, 2013

Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) vowed Wednesday to fight any effort by the Obama administration or members of Congress to enact gun control initiatives.

“We live in a republic, not a dictatorship,” Duncan said.

“The Founding Fathers never envisioned executive orders being used to restrict our constitutional rights.”

He added: “The president should not be able to act unilaterally when it comes to our constitutional rights. Executive orders were meant as a way for the president to implement legislatively passed laws, not to make law.”

    It’s called the Bill of Rights ….. obama has no constitutional authority to restrict 2nd Amendment rights. Anyone who enforces his executive order is in violation of the law and will be treated accordingly.
    Will someone please begin impeachment proceeding against this pretend president.

    In my opinion, the military needs to go in and take every one of these communists out starting with the big O’ if that happened you would see every one of them throwing this piece of S#$T under the bus, but it will be too late for them anyways; they have all made their beds and they will be buried in them! Oh if the military doesn’t do it… We the People WILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Clinton got rid of the last patriotic generals, the new NWO military will follow thier orders without a word. The enlisted men would have to do it but they are all out of the country fighiting a dialectical war for no reason. It is easy to take over when your national guard is out of the coutnry and they can call in UN troops to shoot you and confiscate your guns. Thank you GW Bush! tyranny brought to you by Republirats as it is always worthless conservatives who lay the foundation for despotism as who else passed the Patriot act? Oh excuse me, the act against Patriots!.

        Oh and another pet peave I have. I cant tell you how many stupid worthlees conservatives called talk shows back in the early 00 to say, “I have nothing to fear form the Patriot act, I havent done anything wrong.” It is perfectly ok to destory the constitution, institute secret courts, throw out habeu corpus, which our founders abhored as England had them. So everything that attacked the constitution the conservatives and Republirats went along with as long as good ol Gosh Wally Bush was in office! But now? All of that is in the hands of a Radical leftist! Feel safe now my buckos? Your lunacy and stupidity is now about to shove you into gulags! neo-Conservatism is as much of a mental disorder as is leftwing socialism! Classical LIberalism, the founders original beliefs, is the ony true basis for action!

    Representative Jeff Duncan, I applaud your comments. However, I have three (3) questions: Why do you and other members of Congress keep referring to Barack Hussein Obama as “President”? He is ILLEGALLY occupying the White House, and he is clearly a Usurper of the U.S. Constitution. It’s been over 4 years since Barack publicly announced he would seek the Office of the President of the United States. Why haven’t you, and every other member of Congress DEMANDED he prove he is a U.S. Natural Born Citizen? Article II, paragraph 5, of the United States Constitution states, “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age ofthirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States”. When you, and every other member of Congress are sworn in, you state, “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God”. When will you, and all other members of Congress going to fulfill the Oath you swore to? If any of you members of Congress had any backbone, you would issue a statement to the world, giving Barack Hussein Obama 48 hours to provide the proof that he meets ALL the criteria, set forth in the U.S. Constitution, to serve as President of the United States, or he will be forcibly removed, arrested, jailed, and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the Law. In addition, I would force him to prove he is a U.S. Citizen, and I would force him to prove who issued, to him, the Social Security Number he is currently using. Until you, and the other members of Congress fulfill your duty to the legal American Citizens, you should all be arrested for Treason. In Article III, Section 3,the U.S. Constitution also states, “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court. The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the Person attainted”.

    Obama has yet to answer how and why his administration allowed 2000 so called semi automatic weapons into Mexico and the death of a border agent because of this. All he did was hide behind executive prvilige. He needs to be impeached now.

    I believe that all this anti-gun talk is to divert peoples attention away from the real issues… 1.) We are %17 trillion in debt. 2.) We have an illegal person in the WH… 3.) Fast & Furious need to be vented… 4.) Benghazi need to be vented… 5.) Why are Nobama’s cronies given a job as Czar at enormous salaries when they do nothing except collect big checks…. 6.) When is Solindra going to be prosecuted for fraud and the fruitcake that approved all those so called loans… 7.) Who is going to investigate voter fraud???? The crook, eric holder, never will because it goes right back to Nobama….
