We’ll have the constitution even if we have to commit treason #gunappreciationday

I realize that for many, the concept of Treason, ingrained in the Constitution and spelled out pretty darn well, is a concept that holds no substance if a black guy in the White House, but when you advocate guns and arming yourself on the inaugural weekend, you are setting yourselves up for some, well, treason -

The myth is this… the constitution is under attack and must be preserve by buying chik-fil-a sandwiches, I mean, guns… Because, you know, there is total truth in any of those things.

Guess what… the Constitution is still there, and no less so than under a white guy as President, or, maybe in 2016, a white woman.

Let me let you in on something… if you take up arms against the U.S. Government for any reason, or anything any of the State governments, you are committing treason:

Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. – Article III, Section 3

You cannot preserve your god by killing it…

Wait… oh dang it…
