Anthony Romero Director of ACLU: "The government can and should regulate firearms"Submitted by Verrater on Thu, 07/18/2013 - 21:20
second amendment... sigh... the right to bear arms.. an individual right or a collective right.. great academic debate... but what's the point? govt can and should regulate firearms... at the end of the day, we do very little on the second amendment. that one amendment is covered incredibly well by the NRA and gun control groups. So i say, let the NRA take the second amendment. with there larger membership base, and bigger budget. we will handle the first, fourth, fifth, and 14th amendments... this is usually a red herring that folks use against us when they don't like the other stuff we do.. i'm not suggesting that is your point of view.. but if you want to support the second amendment, go to the nra. if you care about the rest of our democracy, then we are your group.
