I am genuinely curious.
When any person is sworn in as a Congressman they must take the oath of office.
That oath includes these specific words;
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
Now I am a total busybody when it comes to the 1st and 2nd Amendments of the Constitution – they are, for me, the bedrock that helps guarantee a Constitutional form of government.
So when I hear or see Members of the “Democrat Group Think Herd” aka the current group of molluscs masquerading as “Democrat Part Presidential Candidates” laying out what they intend to do to hamper law abiding citizens from owning guns and bearing arms – I wonder.
I wonder how they can take an oath to uphold the Constitution while loudly announcing that they do not intend to do that? There is not much wriggle room – at all – in the amendments for the federal government to interfere in the rights of Citizens.
How do they get away with it? Is it not perjury to swear an oath when you have already stated you are not going to uphold it? How are these people permitted to swear to something falsely?
