Liberals and the Second Amendment.

Interesting article on the Daily Kos about “Why Liberals should love the Second Amendment.” My favorite part:

“If we can agree that the First Amendment protects not only powerful organizations such as the New York Times or MSNBC, but also the individual commenter on the internet, the individual at the anti-war rally, the individual driving the car with the “Fuck Bush” bumper sticker, can we not also agree that the Second Amendment’s use of “the people” has the same meaning?”

  1. The first amendment is written as absolute, but actually speech, press, religion and assembly are regulated by law.The second amendment states: a well regulated miltia. clearly James Madison intended for weapons to be regulated, but the conservatives want ownership to be absolute.If anything cries out for regulation it is purchasing and training of fire arms.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
