Ladd Everitt dives, crashes and burns.

NRA News’ Cam Edwards may look now like some wholesome farmer, but do not be fooled and think him ignorant of our history. Dear Ladd saying that Pennsylvania’s original constitution did not contain RKBA did not go unchallenged by Cam:

In fact, the original constitution of 1790 in Section XXI is where Cam’s quote comes from.

But Ladd does not give up…

So maybe he meant the U.S Constitution and not the one from PA. But if so, I am not sure if by “pamphlet” Ladd refers to that part of the U.S. Constitution called “The Bill of Rights” which would make him a much bigger idiot that he usually represents.

Charles C.W. Cook summarized the exchange:

And I have to agree.

  1. Also Article IX Section I:

    “Of the equality and rights of men.
    Section I. That all men are born equally free and independent, and have certain inherent and indefeasible rights, among which are those of ENJOYING AND DEFENDING LIFE [capitalization added] and liberty, of acquiring, possessing, and protecting property and reputation, and of pursuing their own happiness.”

  2. I think Everitt perhaps is referring to the federal constitution; as the constitutional convention was in Philly. And yes, the 2nd amendment – as well as the REST OF THE ENTIRE BILL OF RIGHTS – was an “afterthought” of sorts.

    However, Ladd may want to remember his basic history: The BOR was left out not because no one imagined that those rights did not exist; indeed, the rights were considered inalienable and inherent. The concern was that a BOR would be seen as a limitation on rights – that a listing of rights would serve to limit the people’s rights to those and no other. That is the philosophy reflected in the 10th amendment.

    Note how that turned out.

    BTW – he’s not arguing that the principles of the 1st amendment were “fringe” in the same way, is he? Is he that stupid?

    Well, yes, why yes he is that stupid.

  3. It’s been awhile since he stuck his head up. My guess is he’s trying to attract attention to himself as his current gig as Takai’s pet anti-gun monkey likely isn’t going to last long.
