Yes, it would be very wrong to think he knows more about the constitution. All you had to do is listen to his gun control speech the other day to clearly see this.<quoted text>
Would it be wrong to think that President Obama doesn't know more about the Constitution, has more knowledge than anyone on here?
First, some set up. The US constitution is a document that constitutes the government of the governed. To put it bluntly, it lists the functions of government and restricts its actions to what was agreed to when the government was constituted. It does not grant you rights, it restricts the government from taking or weakening rights you already hold. In his gun control speech, the president attempted to claim that 9th amendment was violated when these mass shooting happened across the county by citizens. Only the government can violate a constitutional right. Private citizens regularly place limits on speech, religious expression, freedom to associate, require you to submit to searches as conditions to entering their property, force you to testify against yourself (mandatory lie detector or drug tests), and so on. If you hold a person as a slave, you do not get charged with a violation of their 13th amendment rights, you get charged with a violation or multiple violations of 18 USC sec 1581 through 1596 and probably a few other laws. This is because the constitution gave congress the ability to make law ensuring slavery was not in practice in any of the jurisdictions of the US.
Obama was probably high or sleeping during his constitutional law classes or he is deliberately misleading a nation of idiots trying to gank emotion and political leverage where none should exist. His statements in the gun control speech should be a WTF moment for any graduating high school senior and anyone else who was ever exposed to a civics class.
