So once again, Jeff Sessions has proven that he’s no friend to the Constitution.
Earlier today, ABC news released a video exchange obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. In it, a DOJ intern asked him why he’s supposedly so lax on gun control laws, but still wanted to aggressively enforce marijuana prohitibion.
In response, Sessions quoted a medical association claiming that marijuana is dangerous – then went on to say that he intends to “defend the 2nd Amendment,” and “it’s as valid as the 1st Amendment.”
Here’s the thing. The 10th Amendment is just as valid as the 2nd, the 1st, and the rest.
The Constitution was never intended to empower the federal government to ban a plant – or a gun for that matter.
And because Jeff Sessions is more dedicated to his personal policy preferences than the Constitution, his views are just as dangerous as the gun control supporting student who challenged him.
