If the Left insists upon limiting the Second Amendment, then maybe it is time to reexamine the First Amendment, in light of their arguments for limiting the Second.

The problem with this particular misguided missive is that it incorrectly presumes that the 1st Amendment is not important to conservatives.

Just place it upon the mass media and politicians. Have them register all commo equipment they purchase as well as have a 15 day waiting period (make it six months instead). Make sure they have to take about 300 hours of training in the responsible use of their mouths before they go shooting them off. If caught in a lie, fabrication, or spouting words that could result in the diminishment of Constitutional protections they get charged accordingly by zealous DAs.

It would seem prudent to outlaw high capacity email programs. The danger is that I have relatives who might barely qualify for free speech licenses, but they tend to mass spam stupid jokes and articles debunked years ago to dozens on their contact lists. I have similar problems with FR ping lists. ;-)

Don’t forget to have the list of the home addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and other contact info on all journos and politicians posted and mapped on a website.

Yes, the analogy has been brought up before that Television, Radio, and the Internet is the “assault weapon” of the First Amendment.

We need mandatory background checks, and the ability to keep MCDs away from people who are psychologically unstable — for example, people who disagree with CNN. All we’re asking for are commonsense speech control laws. It’s for the children! /s
