many libs say guns should be treated like cars
my driver's license was obtained when I turned 16
It is good in all fifty states and many other nations
I don't need a license to buy a car
I don't need a license to operate a car on private property
There is no limit to how fast my car is capable of going or how many cars I own
I can own the same cars that police own-indeed I can own cars far more powerful than police cars
I can drive my car in any state
he noted it is an individual right that is exercised collectively-such as voting or more importantly, serving on a jury/ However he has conceded that in order to exercise the right in a collective militia action, people had to be able to own and train with guns but only their collective use was protected by the amendment Yet he cannot point to a proper federal delegation of power that would allow federal regulation
Anti Gun funded Ohio State Historian Saul Cornell (his center on gun issues is funded by the Joyce Foundation) tries to make a hybrid argument as well
unlike Amar who is intellectually honest, Cornell starts off with "how do I justify gun bans" and works backwards in an attempt to undercut the clear intent of the second.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
