were you here earlier Sir Mr Swanson
we're here for the first pound okay so I
don't have to go through the whole thing
that Mr Khan is referring to
um
it is very easy to legislate the removal
of an inanimate object I've been
carrying weapons
my entire adult life it's very easy to
legislate removing that it is nearly
impossible to legislate the healing of a
man's soul
and that's the core issue here it's not
the weapon
it's the soul of the person that's been
injured by combat and I have multiple
combat tours
so what you're doing sir is chasing a
symptom and you're not looking at the
root cause
I understand she volunteered to study
this again I read your resume it's
incredibly impressive and tragic at the
same time I'm very sorry about your
family's history it's just terrible
your academic record is incredibly
impressive and it just seems
like you want to do more of the same
study study study study study
on a philosophical level
the Constitution of the United States
has a provision that's written into it
that allows you to change the
Constitution if you feel that it's been
an error ordinance Edition that's the
amendment process
the 18th amendment was passed that
prohibited
sale of alcohol in the United States of
America it was and played for like three
years and they realized it was a
terrible mistake because they had
increased
organized crime
and it was repealed
the
original error that Mr takano is
referring to it wasn't just an error
it's the original sin of the United
States of America the compromise was
made to
count human beings as two-thirds of one
person if they had more melanin in their
skin
than other people and that was horrible
the finest my opinion amendment that has
ever passed in the United States of
America is the 13th which got rid of
slavery and indentured servitude
so in the spirit of the 18th and the
21st Amendment which repealed it
are you calling
for the repeal of the Second Amendment
I am not I'm prepared to accept the way
the Supreme Court has interpreted the
Second Amendment and to try to work
within the the exception and justice
scalia's statement and in Heller that
the right is not unlimited and so it
falls directly reading Law in the book
reading Law Antonin Scalia goes through
the developmental process of the Second
Amendment and I think that you're
misinterpreting what he's saying so now
listen here
what we're doing
is we are subverting the Second
Amendment
the Veterans Administration does not
have the authority to remove
constitutional rights now or ever
this body including my Democrat
colleagues are the only body that are
chartered by our Constitution that can
change it
you are not
neither is he you can't do that and
you're actively willfully and knowingly
subverting the Constitution of the
United States of America and that will
not stand with this body sir
so either you amend the Constitution
which is incredibly difficult on purpose
so you can't willy-nilly change these
things it takes a very deliberative and
hard-fought process we watch the movie
Lincoln last night as a body and it's
fantastic is a two-month period of time
about the ratification of the 13th
Amendment which freed men
and helped correct the original sin in
this country and it was 20 Democrats
voted for that and if they had not it
would not have passed so either you call
for the repeal of the Second Amendment
or you stop doing this
and you stop doing this
knock it off
you're subverting the constitutional
rights of American citizens and you
don't have that Authority we do
that is all I have to say yes sir please
comment Mr Swanson
I certainly concede that we cannot
broadly limit legal access to guns well
then don't
what we have to do is something more
difficult and that is to figure out
who are the people who pose such a high
risk of harming themselves or others
that it is Justified you're a clinical
psychologist in this field for almost 40
years
and you haven't figured it out yet maybe
you should look at a different vocation
sir I think we've made a lot of progress
on that score and I think we have not
veteran suicides increasing that's not
true
that is not true we've spent 19 billion
dollars in 2023.
on suicide prevention and suicides are
increasing your your methodology your
methodology has been proven to be bad
and I have no more time sir without a
yield back thank you thank you
representative I'm not going to
4:56
recognize myself

Yes it is; This posted written material was copied 'directly' from the transcript 'as is', 'as offered'. You have a second added option of CC which is offered for those with hearing impairments. Or there is the third option, you can simply 'turn up' your hearing aids and listennnnnn...  :shocked: :wink: :grin:
