Is there such a thing as justifiable homicide when the deceased is the President under the system of government imposed by the Constitution of the united States of America?
The 10th Amendment reads:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the People.
According to this final passage of the Bill of Rights, enforcement of the Constitution is the responsibility of - 1. The Central Government; 2. The States; and 3. The People. If the first two entities become incapable or willfully non-compliant with the enforcement of the specific rights and limitations imposed by the Constitution, it is the responsibility of the People (upper case) to uphold them.
The specific text of the 2nd Amendment reads:
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
The powers vested in the executive branch of the united States government can be found in Article II of the Constitution - in which nowhere does it say that constitutional rights may be suspended upon the opinion or direction of the President.
With all due respect, Mr. President, you are overstepping your bounds given the limitations that outline the acceptable actions of persons occupying your office.
I doubt America will tolerate a dictatorship very well. Do you seek to be a dictator? Do you seek to render null the natural rights of Our people through personal discretion with no respect for the rule of law?
I hope not. You will have to murder many of us in cold blood in order to temporarily get your way.
How many leaders are left, or their governments persist, that decided that it was a good idea to rule with an iron fist? None that I can think of.
This is not a threat. This is only intended to pose a question and provoke thought. I hope that you consider the 10th Amendment rights outlined by the Constitution in conjunction with other pertinent amendments.
I wish you well and hope you make the correct decision as dictated by the Constitution of the united States of America.
Good day, sir.
The truth is not always a pleasant thing to confront.
My father fought for my right to free speech, and I intend to use it in a capacity to preserve my rights.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
~1st Amendment to the Constitution
Our founders instituted such amendments that so we may peacefully defeat tyrannical entities that may come to infiltrate the American PEOPLES' government.
