    Maybe we should repeal the First Amendment instead then we would not have to read or hear about the criminal violence using guns.

    Not everything Pattis Esq. says is bunk...

    From the article:
    We love our guns. They are supposed to keep us safe and secure. Government is supposed to shudder at the prospect of an armed citizenry’s resorting to self-help to chase tyrants from office. That’s patriotic nonsense. We don’t revolt. Despite all our wild rhetoric about the dangers of federal tyranny, we’re a highly regulated and largely supine people. Every four years, a verbal war of words takes place prior to presidential elections. Then we settle down into a compliant torpor, moaning and groaning about government, but trusting and obeying every step of the way.
    THAT is the truth... Pure as it gets.

    The rest of it is balderflop.

    Unless he wants to change the second amendment... to read...

    "The right of the people to keep and bear arms and ammunition shall not be infringed, taxed, regulated, or otherwise abridged."

    My thoughts exactly. The problem is, she wants to give you only the rights she deems fit. After all, she knows better than the unwashed masses.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    I don't know what this guy's beef is; 2A is keeping him employed. He should be endorsing it.

    At least the first amendment keeps these people out in the open where we can keep an eye on them.

    As a holder of a Geography degree, and cartographer by trade, him saying that Yemen was in Africa made me chuckle.

    He seems to think the second amendment puts guns in the hands of criminals and children. You cant explain reason to emotional/stupid people.

    "I frankly don't much care what the founders had to say. "

    Yeah, see that's where you go wrong right there. Now I don't much care what YOU have to say, Norm.

    But he is so well informed about guns! Why, he even saw one once. Is it any wonder there are so many jokes about lawyers? The list of reasons we don't trust lawyers is so long it would last a lifetime in the bathroom!

    If you are a lawyer please disregard the above comment.

    Well maybe the trusting part.... but are you admitting or advocating disobeying laws? That's a no-no.
