There has been another mass shooting and a revival of the illogical attempts by the gun grabbers to pass legislation that would have done nothing to prevent it, but would punish law-abiding gun owners. One of their favorite arguments, no matter how often debunked, is that the Founders wouldnt have written the Second Amendment as they did had they anticipated anything beyond muskets.
Heres a classic recent example from that brilliant British expert on American history, CNNs Piers Morgan, who seems to be projecting when he calls his debating partner an unbelievably stupid man, because he cant logically hold up his own end of the debate. Indeed his only argument seems to be an argumentum ab incredulam I cant believe youre making that argument.

If the RKBA is a collective right exercised through the national guard, then why isn’t free speech also a collective right as well exercised through national public radio?
We need a 100 word max limit on letters to the editor or Congresscritters you have to use a quill pen to write it.
After all, you can’t write “fire” in a crowded theater showing a film by a fat guy in a baseball cap.
In an odd way, I think Whoopi has identified the real problem. The 2nd amendment really was for the purpose of enabling the citizens to defend themselves from a potentially tyrannical government. But if we cannot own weapons equivalent to those that the government possesses, the 2nd amendment is pointless. Any law that keeps me from owning a tank or a bazooka or a tactical nuke, for that matter, should be declared unconstitutional.
I agree. Only the government should be able to publish complex thought.
1. Limit public expressions of thought to 1 word
2. Eliminate semi-automatic assault strings of words (sentences)
2. Put a thirty day waiting period into effect
3. Limit public comments to a one 1 word expression every 30 days
4. Make folks register with the national registry before they can publish their word
5. Make sure they register with local and state government when they move
6. Do a background check to make sure they haven’t broken any government laws
7. Make them re-register every twelve months
You have one of the best tag lines on FR right now!
Amendment One and a half:
“A well-schooled electorate, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and read Books, shall not be infringed.”
Liberals would write such an amendment, and then write laws preventing possession or use of books by anybody, unless they had the equivalent of a high-school diploma (or better), ie: “well-schooled”, and nobody could have a book unless they were a registered voter, ie: part of the “electorate”.
in MN of all places. if Marx Dayton finds out , he pee his panties.
Another good call...
