Second Amendment ‘Is Just In Case The First One Doesn’t Work Out’
Recently Dave Chappelle was fêted on Sunday night in Washington, D.C., as this year’s recipient of the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, a lifetime achievement award bestowed annually by the Kennedy Center. Known for his irreverent and boundary-pushing sketch comedy show and stand-up routines, Chappelle has never shied away from an opportunity to eviscerate political correctness for laughs.
Whether you like Dave Chappelle or not, he has the right to earn a living, he has the right to an opinion, and the right to express that opinion verbally. One opinion he had was in regard to people that did not necessarily agree with him.
“Don’t get mad at ’em, don’t hate on ’em,” Chappelle said Sunday. “Man, it’s not that serious.
The First Amendment is first for a reason. Second Amendment is just in case the first one doesn’t work out.”
That is the basic gist of our Constitution and why it is an amazing document. Each section is not to be read individually, but as a full collection on philosophies to obtain freedom and sustain freedom, so that each Citizen of the United States would have the opportunity to succeed if they wanted to and worked hard for it.
Our Military and our Veterans are given the most important duty our Country has – to protect that Constitution. Stephen, as a member of the National Guard and I, as a member of the State Guard, thank you for the service you gave to uphold the Constitution and those freedoms it hopes to sustain for us.
