    Why liberals should love the Second Amendment

    The Second Amendment is about revolution. . .Let me say that again: It is the right of revolution. . .

    Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government

    . . . It is not about how much ammunition is "excessive" or what types of guns are and are not permissible. Liberals cling to such minutia at the expense of understanding and appreciating the larger concept that underlies this right.

    So.

    What is the point? Is this a rallying cry for liberals to rush right out and purchase a gun? Absolutely not. Guns are dangerous when used by people who are not trained to use them, just as cars are dangerous when driven by people who have not been taught how to drive.

    No, this is a rallying cry for the Bill of Rights -- for all of our rights.

    This is an appeal to every liberal who says, "I just don't like guns."

    This is an appeal to every liberal who says, "No one needs that much ammunition."

    This is an appeal to every liberal who says, "That's not what the Founders meant."

    This is an appeal to every liberal who supports the ACLU.

    This is an appeal to every liberal who has complained about the Bush Administration's trading of our civil liberties for the illusion of greater security. (I believe Iíve seen a T-shirt or two about Benjamin Franklinís thoughts on that.)

    This is an appeal to every liberal who believes in fighting against the abuses of government, against the infringement of our civil liberties, and for the greater expansion of our rights.

    This is an appeal to every liberal who never wants to lose another election to Republicans because they have successfully persuaded the voters that Democrats will not protect their Second Amendment rights.

    This is an appeal to liberals, not merely to tolerate the Second Amendment, but to embrace it. To love it and defend it and guard it as carefully as you do all the others.

    Because we are liberals. And fighting for our rights -- for all of our rights, for all people -- is what we do.

    Because we are revolutionaries.
