That smell. What is it?

It’s Houstonian Jesse Judice shitting his pants, apparently:

Regarding “Candidates push for legalizing open carrying of handguns” (Page A1, Monday), the article and the accompanying photograph are terrifying.

Surely the framers of the Second Amendment did not envision the reduction of neighborhoods to armed camps, where the encounter of another person is seen as a threat and not a gift.

The thought that supposedly religious ethical family men could even conceive that this is a common good appalls.

The most cursory reading of the Second Amendment reveals the error of this attitude, the opinion of the Supreme Court to the contrary notwithstanding.

It is time to seriously consider the revision or elimination of the Second Amendment to avoid this insanity!

Revision or elimination of the Second Amendment, eh? To what end? Judging from his hysteria I’m going to guess Mr. Judice is probably not in favor of anyone owning guns, and that only means one thing. Such leads to the question: If Mr. Judice is this up in arms — so to speak — when no one’s actually shooting anyone, just imagine his reaction when the gun-snatching starts!

    Sounds like the author would like to see us disarmed, “reeducated” and for the “bitter clingers” sent to the gas. That’s what people like him do with “undermenchen” isn’t it?

    In a very abstract way, I almost wish we could remove the 2nd Amendment from the argument about the right to keep and bear arms.

    Because that would leave the 9th Amendment free and clear — without any reference to the Militia.

    But to address his points – the Founding Fathers not able to envision “armed camps”; good grief Charlie Brown, thanks for showing your absolute ignorance of history. Care to guess how many people (not just men) in their times were armed? It was almost universal.

    And for religious people; God wiped out the first born of Egypt to get His Chosen People free, He ordered the wholesale slaughter of inhabitants of particular areas multiple times, David — a Warrior King — was especially loved by God. Sampson — ever hear of him?

    Sorry but the Unchanging God doesn’t seem to have a problem with armed violence and especially not with self defense.

    Want to revise the 2nd Amendment — be careful what you wish for. We might end up with people owning fully armed F-22 Raptors, Abrams tanks and Minuteman Missile siloes.

    A lot of us do argue that, basing it on the natural right argument, but then that doesn’t gain much if any traction with those who want to ban guns.

    And I do dearly wish that revisiting the 2A would allow F-22s and whatnot, but I’d be more afraid anymore that it would lead to things like gun confiscation.
