Thought for the day:

Since the liberals all claim that the Second Amendment is not about current firearms, and doesn't apply to revolvers, autoloading pistols, rifles which fire more than one shot, and (especially) AR-15's and Ak-47's, since none of those types existed when the Constitution was written in 1776.... then one would wonder:

Will they apply the same logic to the First Amendment? After all, communication was verbal or by newspaper (printed on real paper!) in, following their logic, the First should not apply to television, radio, printed t-shirts or the internet or speeches amplified with modern sound equipment, since they didn't exist when the Constitution was written either.

Wonder how they'd like that idea. Not that (being liberals and all) they'd see the logic.

Yep - follows nicely. I suspect you'd hear a few "ya buts" and they'll keep right on bangin' on the 2nd.

I had someone retort that speech never killed anyone. I pointed them to youtube to watch the speeches of the Grand Kliegel exhorting his followers to lynch people.

Freedom means having to deal with the knuckleheads without taking away the rights of the non-knuckleheads.
