I have, on my Facebook page...and granted...thats only a few hundred people...but it's my circle, begun an in-earnest education campaign about the 2nd.
Every chance I get I remind people: The 2nd is NOT for hunting. The 2nd is not for home or self protection. The 2nd exists to back up the 1st. The 1st amendment is there, not to allow you to make porn movies or so you don't have to look at the 10 Commandments posted in front of the Court House...but to voice concerns when the government goes beyond it's authority. The 2nd is there for when the government attempts to prohibit the 1st.
ALL of the Bill of Rights are aimed DIRECTLY at limiting Federal Power and empowering the individual. If we would teach this to our children, like we used to, we would be much better off.
The abolishment of the 2nd Amendment will bring civil war to this country.
Medved is no conservative. He’s a RINO at best.
The irony of losing their 1st Amendment rights by relinquishing our 2nd Amendment rights is lost on the likes of Medved and O’Reilly.
Clearly Michael Medved does not own guns and does not understand that “assault weapon” is a thoroughly phony PR phrase that means nothing. Likewise Jim Boeheim, the Syracuse coach who won his 900th. game yesterday, made some similar statement which indicates he just doesn’t know jack about guns.
Medved does an interesting show, but he always hewes very closely to the far left edge of Conservatism.
O’Reilly is NOT a conservative, he’s a statist.
O’Reilly is a moron. Last night he said he was a “2nd Amendment guy”, proceeded to get different guns confused and embarrassed himself, and excused it by then saying, “I’m not a gun guy.” He said we need to sacrifice for the kids and tighten the gun laws.
This morning, Gretchen Carlson on Fox & Friends said she just doesn’t understand why anyone “needs” to own an assault rifle.
It’s like an avalanche now, and these fools don’t see anything wrong with the fact that they are agreeing with Communist China on gun control in America. All of this is a purely emotional response, and I for one am getting sick of it. When I heard that Dick’s Sporting Goods in Newtown had removed their guns, I turned off the TV before my head could explode. What——now the people in CT will be traumatized by the mere sight of a gun?
medved is no conservative. He was an avid supporter of RINOs in 2008 and I haven’t seen any change in him since then. I recall him and Hugh Hewitt another RINO lover, were on the Romeny bandwagon in 2008 and most likely also in 2012.
In many cases, they literally don't know anybody who owns a gun and often the only time they've ever seen one is when they bump into a cop on the subway. In short, they fear what is unfamiliar to them, and living as they do in crowded urban environments filled with unusually large numbers of aggressive people, they tend assume the worst about human intentionality.
If I had to base my opinion of humanity on the people I rode the train with in the city every day, I wouldn't trust people much, either. That's a big reason why I left city life behind 25 years ago, and never looked back. It's much nicer here in the country - along with my family, good neighbors... and my guns, too.
Because none of these self-proclaimed Conservatives are actually Conservative. We only have a few real Conservatives in the media... Rush is the Big Kahuna.
I would saythat they are not genuine bona fide Conservatives in the first place.I would also add that “judas” should also be in their name somewhere.
“Conservative” talking heads?
I don’t think so.
Bill O’reily is just a self engrandizing egomaniacle idiot.
This might come as a surprise but Medved is not a conservative he is a republican. He is often on the wrong side of the issue and he hates libertarians. As a alleged reformed leftist ( he claims) I think he still has a little left in him.
He has blasted any callers to his program that charged Barry as a socialist or marxist belittling them and defending Barry as just a misguided liberal but a nice guy.
Mitt Romney: These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.
These guys are not conservative.
They are not usually raving leftist lunatics which is better than most liberal liberals, but that does not make them advocates for the conservative point of view.
O’Rielly is a religious/political Catholic (traditional democrat; a Marxist ideal with a Catholic social order) and Medved is a Jewish man who considered “controversial” and even conservative, because rejects the Marxist atheist agenda of limo-liberal Jews in the dem party.
There. You answered your own question.
Don't cave to the leftist propaganda. They want conservatives to believe the gun control battle is lost even before the battle is begun. They hope conservatives will simply surrender. It's propaganda.
they have not caved, they are just effete elites who now feel safe to voice their personal beltway shapped opinions.
betway disease is part and parcel of the
