I love listening to British people weigh in on our Constitution.  I wonder how he feels about the Declaration of Independence?

Although at this point, I'd be more comfortable keeping Piers here in America but deporting Alex Jones to Zimbabwe.

wildcardjack: Of course... He stole a job from a hard working American journalist, it should have gone to a Peter Jennings type.

Okay, I don't know anymore journalists.

Jennings was Canadian.

Mean Daddy: Amazing how many First Amendment advocates are out there, but few Second Amendment ones. Have you ever thought who would ensure the First Amendment rights if there were no guns? Oh that's right Harry Belafonte. It's only for hunting, not to protect us from an overly intrusive gubmint.

While the idea was protection from an intrusive government, that approach really no longer applies. The American military is so ridiculously advanced that Billy and Frank's rifle collection isn't going to protect them from anything. The only would be that troops would refuse to turn on their fellow countrymen, but even then you only need skeleton crew to take down even thousands of revolting citizens. When the law was written, the competition was basically fair between the soldier and the citizen, except perhaps for being outnumbered.

Now personal protection from intruders, wildlife, etc still makes sense. But don't point to gun rights as being necessary to a free state in 2013. The fed will simply drone strike your ass while drinking the morning coffee. Then they'll send a tank just to be sure. Conservatives are the ones always clamoring for a huge, bloated military, so they shouldn't be surprised at the results if they ever tried to take it on.

Also, your remark about there being a dearth of 2nd Amendment advocates is without a doubt the most asstarded thing I've read here today.

edmo: Laws are derived from the Constitution and they apply to all within the country , citizen or not. Why do people believe the rights within do not also apply? Of course they do.

Like the right to vote?

When we get rid of the 2nd amendment we can work on repealing those pesky 1st and 4th ones.
