I Could Support This Individual Mandate

I know that Judge Roger Vinson has ruled the individual mandate unconstitutional and I agree completely with his ruling. Of course the Obama regime is ignoring the ruling and pressing on with implementing this disaster even though they should be putting an end to it. Judge Vinson made it clear that the federal government was expected to follow a ruling and therefore he did not need to make an additional ruling telling them to do so. Obama and his people do not obey the courts or any other legal entity that interferes with their agenda.

I know that this decision can be overturned in a higher court and it is obvious that it will eventually be decided in the Supreme Court. So while I am happy that this was ruled unconstitutional, I know that it can be back as quickly as it left.

I do find that I might be in favor of an individual mandate. Several lawmakers in South Dakota have introduced a bill that would require all adults age 21 or older to buy a gun:

Five South Dakota lawmakers have introduced legislation that would require any adult 21 or older to buy a firearm “sufficient to provide for their ordinary self-defense.”

The bill, which would take effect Jan. 1, 2012, would give people six months to acquire a firearm after turning 21. The provision does not apply to people who are barred from owning a firearm.

Nor does the measure specify what type of firearm. Instead, residents would pick one “suitable to their temperament, physical capacity, and preference.”

One of the lawmakers admits that the bill has no chance of passing and he does not expect it too. The bill was introduced to demonstrate the absurdity of the government forcing people to buy things.

Then again, the detailed and well researched decision by Judge Vinson demonstrated the absurdity of the government’s action all by itself…

Cave Canem!
Never surrender, never submit.

    I thought that was already a law, somewhere in the south. Was it a town in Georgia or Alabama?

    I know the SEIU members around here don’t act up because we have carry permits, and take ALL of our rights with us wherever we go.
