Skip to comments."Time for Leagues to Do Something About Players With Guns" (Abolish 2nd amendment)
Posted on 12/01/2008 4:47:31 PM PST by GreaterSwiss
Now, let's not start screaming about the Second Amendment. To begin with, the amendment should be abolished -- a sensible interpretation of the amendment is that it was written to allow the people to raise a militia for protection and to hunt for food. Clearly no one needs to raise a militia these days, and those who hunt for a living can be licensed to do so.
It would be nice if President-elect Obama had the time to focus his energies on repeal of the Second Amendment, but he first has to deal with a broken economy and the incredibly wrong-headed war started by his predecessor. What's more, the issue of gun rights causes almost as much screaming from the right as abortion rights, the irony being that those yelling the loudest about the right to life are usually those yelling almost as loud about their right to carry weapons that kill.

Moron. Public school product, no doubt.
Why are so many sports “journalists” such complete brain-dead moonbats? Besides the notorious Olberman, so extreme even other moonbats mock him, there is the truly despicable Bryant Gumbel. The latter put in the single most disgraceful performance in the history of broadcast journalism on the morning of 9-11-01, continuing to insist that the attack was not not deliberate even after the second plane hit, and browbeating traumatized eyewitnesses who dared to suggest otherwise. Fortunately, even the networks could not stomach his arrogance forever and he was eventually reduced to narrating UFO propaganda on the Sci-Fi Channel before a pathetic attempt at a comeback in sports, which he naturally ruined with his big mouth.
There is a bad sickness loose in this country and the journalism/advertising/entertainment continuum, the media-industrial complex, is the focus of most of it.
If the majority of today’s public hadn’t been fed a steady diet of this trip in school, with virtually no counter, this idiot wouldn’t be able to get away with publishing such outright lies.
I’m just going to guess that Feinstein didn’t suggest that the NFL stop allowing hoodrats into the league or preventing players from going to strip clubs and night clubs during the season.
And I’m guessing that he isn’t going to suggest that there be instituted some kind of One Strike policy for criminals in the NFL (would might otherwise be in jail already if not for their physical gifts and NFL security bailing them out of criminal situations).
Actually, there's never been a better time to raise a militia.
“What’s more, the issue of gun rights causes almost as much screaming from the right as abortion rights, the irony being that those yelling the loudest about the right to life are usually those yelling almost as loud about their right to carry weapons that kill.”
I’ve heard this argument, in several variations (death penalty, etc.), from lefties over the years. The fundamental (no pun intended) flaw is always the same: they create the false argument that an unborn child is morally equivalent to whatever it is they are criticizing.
It is patently absurd to say that wanting legal protections for an unborn innocent is somehow equivalent with owning and (if necessary) using a firearm to protect oneself against harm to life and limb.
It was also needed for citizens to be able to protect themselves, their families, their homes, and their property from those who would take what is not theirs or cause them harm. (Most of those who would do so are known today as Obama's voterbase).
Suggesting that the gun grab is a needed effort, this fool doesn't walk the streets of New York or Washington D.C. at night, I'm sure.
To his credit, at least he attacks the 2nd Amendement openly, instead of trying to give a different interpretation that is opposite of the intent. Other liberals usually take the latter route.
Whoops - truncated my last post - here’s what I meant to post:
It is patently absurd to say that wanting legal protections for an unborn innocent is somehow equivalent with a convicted 1st degree murderer facing execution. And it’s just beyond the pale to suggest owning and (if necessary) using a firearm to protect oneself against harm to life and limb is somehow in contradiction with being pro-life.
sorry for the goof, folks.

Clearly, Feinstein is an idiot and a wuss. Sensibilities such as his will lead to tyranny.
George Washington: “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people’s liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them [guns] by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference [crime]. When firearms go, all goes,
we need them every hour.” (Address to 1st session of Congress)
to post a piece of crap like this w/o a major hurl alert borders on criminal.
“”No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The
strongest reason for the people to retain their right to
keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect
themselves against tyranny in government.””
If he said this today, Jefferson would be placed on an FBI watchlist and probably get a visit from the ATF.
Beginning January 20, 2009 you will get a bellyfull of it, my FRiend.

That’s a good question and I haven’t the slightest idea. You’d think sports “jounalists” would stick to the thing they at least claim to know something about. A good number of them aren’t even proficient at that but when they write on other subjects they expose their stupidity.
The sheer stupidity of that statement is beyond belief.
And, the fact that it was written in regards to a damned football player...a football player, people, is equally astounding.
We are surrounded by idiots, from the damned fool that wrote the above pap, to the breathtakingly witless fools that actually think the actions of a damned football player actually rise to the level of argument about the viability of the US Constitution and our Bill of Rights.
We ain't going to hell in a hand basket...we are already there.
America, I weep for your future.
One thing that President Obama will probably succeed in doing is officially end the Cuban embargo, and, in return, Cuba will allow its athletes to become professionals on the worldwide stage. Tons of Cuban boxers and Cuban baseball players would go professional.
Funny thing is, for a “sports journalist” he misses the point that outdoor sports like Deer Hunting or Duck Hunting are on the major cable networks, and target shooting is a Olympic Sport.
Leftists run sports media, make no mistake about it, when ESPN is running Obama stories, you know the gig is up.
Furthermore, when a “journalist” strays afield into a political topic, they should at least have the barest minimum of knowledge as to the subject matter they are writing articles about, alas, he does not even pass that low bar.
I wish he had the time to do that, too. It would take up his time on an impossible task and take away time that he could be screwing up something else.
