    If the 2nd doesn't protect AK47s, the 1st doesn't protect modern media

    If 2nd Amendment Doesn't Protect AK-47s, 1st Amendment Doesn't Protect Modern Media

    "A March 11th letter to the LA Times' editor takes on the argument that the Second Amendment only protects the kinds of guns in existence at its ratification by showing this would also mean the First Amendment only protects the kinds of speech of its day."

    Well said! Bravo, Robert Emerson (LA Times)

    That's a very interesting argument. Of course most people on the left would say it's ridiculous.

    My copy of the Bill of Rights just says "arms," not "small arms." So, if I'm going to be restricted to the arms of 1789, that includes battleships, heavy artillery, exploding rockets, and various bombs.

    People back when the Bill of Rights was ratified owned privateer battleships.

    re: the 1st:
    They are already trying to control the internet by saying the bloggers aren't REAL journalists.
    One proposed bill says that they (government) would say who a real journalist is.
