Obama's 'Civilian National Security Force' Is Already Covered In The Constitution

Classical Values notes that the civilian National Security Force that Sen. Barack Obama suggested be created already exists -- and it is authorized by the United States Constitution.

That authorization? The Second Amendment.

But then, by just authorizing "the people," you couldn't create a new layer of bureaucracy . . . or create a budget for it, and with a budget, bureaucrats beholden to the politicians creating said bureacracy . . .

Nor could you force untold additional hundreds of thousands of people to be fingerprinted and background checked, just to get them into "the system . . . "

No, I guess we don't want to rely on a 200+ year old scrap of parchment to guide us.

Just pass another damn law . . . or let yet another politician create another layer of bungling bureaucracy . . . all in the name of "accomplishing something . . ."
