Remember how liberals feigned reverence for the Constitution during its alleged wholesale destruction while George W. Bush was president? With a Democrat ensconsed in the White House, they are reverting to old habits when it comes to the blueprint for our republic.
On his radio show Friday, Schultz argued with a caller who said he usually agrees with Schultz, citing "socialized medicine" and higher taxes as examples of common ground they share. But the Second Amendment must be protected, the caller said, lest changes to it erode other freedoms enumerated in the Bill of Rights (audio) --
CALLER: From a legal point of view, I'm pro-Second Amendment and the reason why is one of the legacies of our founding fathers is the Second Amendment and we cannot go and do a full-scale overhaul on it because it will let the cat out of the bag, we can now tear into the First Amendment, you know, all the other amendments ...
SCHULTZ (interrupting): OK, all right, let me, let me back up a little bit. Respectfully, the founding fathers aren't here anymore. WE are the founding fathers of this country now. Things change in America. Social mores change, attitudes change, habits change, the way we think change (sic), technology is changing. The idea that we need to be stuck in the mud of a different generation because some dead people think that's the way we oughta live 200 and some odd years later, I'm not there. I'm not there. To paraphrase Gandhi, let the change begin with you, Ed. Seeing how you've often said over the airwaves that you own numerous guns and are an unapologetic hunter -- a "meat and potatoes liberal" -- how about setting an example by surrendering your firearms to the proper authorities? Seeing how those guns might someday be stolen, as was the case with the firearms used in Newtown.
We've all heard of the Buffett Rule, named for the billionaire tax avoider who wants the wealthy to pay higher taxes. Here's to the Schultz Rule, named for the liberal gun-owner who wants other people to relinquish their guns while his remain stubbornly immune from confiscation.
The founding fathers through their legacy—the Constitution—are doing a better job dead than our mis-rulers are doing alive today.

Ed is nothign but an irrelevent nobody who apaprently has to tear great peopel down in order to gin up a false sense of accomplishment and self-importance in his own life-
Is America done yet with this asshole? Seriously, what could his ratings be?
Done, done, done, done, done, done, done, done, done, done, done and done!
Bring out ze vodka, comrade!/sarcasm;)
Arggggh, I’m Ed Schultz, I no like America, founding fathers bad, me no like guns, freedom is bad, I want to destroy America, start again, Lord Schultz be king, I fix things arggggggh!
Schultz just asked the Founding Fathers to be his judges on doomsday. Does he really want that?
People today like to think that our founding fathers could not have had any intellect
because they were from way back then. Fact is, if they would read the Federal Papers
they would think differently right away, from the first paragraph, from the first chapter.
But in his revisionist world, history didn't begin until he found his echo chamber.
