“Unconstitutional laws aren’t laws.”
That is absolutely right. If a law violates the Constitution, it is not legitimate.
But the matter goes even further than that. If one of man’s laws violates the fundamental and broadly accepted principles of Natural Law, it too is illegitimate, even if the Constitution is silent on the subject. Of course, the Constitution isn’t silent—this is part of the purpose of the 9th and 10th amendments, whose point is to say, “Hey, we’re not listing every single right here, but we are letting you know that the ones we’re not listing still belong to the people.” A government must not make laws that disparage natural rights. A government or party that does so begins to relinquish legitimacy.
If Obama and the Democrats push too hard on the gun issue, it may be their Waterloo.
