Yeah. We know this is a terrifying turn of events. Those U.S. Navy personnel might pose a Security risk, being home grown Patriot types. Dear God, they might be right wingers, maybe even believe in the Constitution.
Never fear. Obama probably has his legal advisors working right now to write up his next Executive Fatwa insuring that they can't have any live ammunition.
We have had to listen, for Decades, to people in positions of Authority who should know better fumble out their explanation of what IS, despite it being Wrong, as taking precedence over what's Legal.
600,000 Americans DIED in our War Between the States.
And from all of that carnage came the 14th Amendment to codify in Black Letter 'Keep Your Hands Off' what's up.
Section. 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
Notice the jurisdictional clause is first up and therefore Supreme.
"All persons . . . are Citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.
"Citizens of the United States" is first, and therefore Supreme to "of the State wherein they reside".
And there goes any individual State (or anybody Else's) Authority to regulate, chisel or otherwise infringe on Any of the Constitution or its Amendments.
If you need further clarity on the limitations of the Executive or any other branch RE: Regulating, Chiseling, or Infringing, please read the Constitution itself. It's neither lengthy nor difficult to understand.
