"Anti-gun Oregon Democrat State Senator Chuck Riley says the Supreme Court was 'right for the time' for upholding the enslavement of blacks as Constitutional. His comments came after questioning by gun rights advocates who were attempting to understand his rational for supporting citizen disarmament edicts, and was recorded by videographer 'LaughingAtLiberals.'"

"'But that wasn't the end of it,' blogger Gateway Pundit noted. He embedded a second video, where Sen. Riley and his staffers were unable to explain how the 'universal background check' edict would work at stopping violent criminals, or do anything besides provide a registration list of gun owners." ...

Step 1: If it was a common practice when the Constitution was ratified, and was not immediately banned when the Constitution took force, then it was not unconstitutional in 1789.

Step 2: If it was Constitutional in 1789, it was Constitutional until an amendment made it unconstitutional.

Step 3: When was the Constitution amended to ban slavery? It appears that the framers of Amendment 14 intended it to ban slavery, so let's use the ratification of 14 as the date slavery became unconstitutional.

I'm not saying slavery was a good or right thing to do, and I believe Chuck the civil rights hater isn't saying that either. I'm just saying that he's technically correct when he says the Constitution didn't always ban slavery.

The 13th amendment did away with slavery. It was ratified in December of 1865.

Uncommon's right, I meant Amendment XIII:

SECTION. 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

SECTION. 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
No kingdom can be secured otherwise than by arming the people. The possession of arms is the distinction between a freeman and a slave. He, who has nothing, and who himself belongs to another, must be defended by him, whose property he is, and needs no arms. But he, who thinks he is his own master, and has what he can call his own, ought to have arms to defend himself, and what he possesses; else he lives precariously, and at discretion. James Burgh, Political Disquisitions: Or, an Enquiry into Public Errors, Defects, and Abuses [London, 1774-1775].
