"We're here to protest the Second Amendment," Alemao said.
I'm curious if they know what the other Amendments are about or if they just know about this one since their parents are probably blathering on about it during their "quality time" anti-American liberal rag fest.
Sometimes I'm almost ashamed to live in the great state of Iowa, especially when I see our young people make such idiots of themselves. You're right it comes from their homes first and then from the schools. I'm glad to say a lot of young people come from other states to attend our schools as we do have fairly good colleges (but liberal professors), so they are not all Iowan's doing the protesting. They forgot to find out that Toby is a democrat but a huge supporter of the troops, thank you Toby!!. I love "Nuge". He's so far right he is "right"!! Too bad he couldn't make it to the show. Our corn fields are a great place to hunt and you can't do that without guns!

I happen to be Andrew Alemao, the protester quoted in the article, and I think you should know that I DO know what each amendment in the Bill of Rights stands for.
1. Speech, religion, assembly, and press
2. The right to BEAR arms... (Notice the word "bear." I don't care if you own a gun, but keep it locked up somewhere discrete in your own house; you don't need to be toting it around in your vehicle. I do not want to get rid of the 2nd Amendment altogether, I just want to rephrase it so that it addresses modern concerns instead of colonial ones.
3. The right to refuse the military from staying at your house
4. Prevents unreasonable searches and seizures without a warrant
5. Prevents those who have been arrested from incriminating themselves, prevents double jeopardy (being tried for the same crime twice), also requires government to give you a fair some for property they demand from you
6. Fair and speedy legal trial
7. Fair and speedy civil trial
8. Outlaws excessive bail and cruel and unusual punishment
9. Rights not listed are given to the people
10. Rights not listed are given also to the state
I feel it is also important to know that NEITHER of my parents are liberals. Both of them have voted for both parties more than once. As for my school, I wouldn't call it "liberal." Just plain "tolerant" will do.
