Subject:Liberal bias?
Time:04:30 pm
I'm watching CNN while in a poker game. Ticker says:

FREEDOM UNDER FIRE
2ND AMENDMENT IN DANGER?

another one said

FREEDOM UNDER FIRE
ARE OUR GUNS AT RISK?

Because I've heard so many calls to repeal the second amendment... Love that liberal bias.

if they take away the populace's guns, then they could go after the first, fourth, and fifth amendments AND NOBODY WOULD STOP THEM.

Well, obviously CNN is just trying to grab ratings, but DC and many amici *are* basically arguing in DC v. Heller that the Supreme Court should rule that the 2nd Amendment says "The government can't disarm the National Guard except by passing legislation," instead of something like "The government can't disarm the populace."

They don't have to repeal the actual amendment, they can just make it impractical monetarily and legally to the point of impossibility for anyone to own a gun. Oh sure, you still 'CAN' because the constitution wasn't directly modified, but go ahead and try doing it. So yeah - gun ownership has been 'at risk' for a long time because there's this moronic notion that not having guns will make crime go down and keep people safe.

Mutually assured destruction kept everybody sane during the cold war, and that's just a large scale version of civilians having personal firearms. If you don't know if Grandma Jones is packing heat, you're not likely to take a chance and steal her purse, now are you (and the last poor sucker that tried to got a bullet in the thigh for his trouble, three cheers grandma!).

I have definitely noticed that whatever else I may have felt about the attendants at the gun & knife shows (and I felt a lot of things, not all positive, to be sure), they were as a whole *very* polite folks in the convention centers.

How many defensive uses of guns happened this week? How many did you hear about in the media?
