I do not need trained on how to exercize my freedom of speech.
Do not need to pay a $115.00 fee to be permitted to redress grievances.
Do not have to have a check on my mental stability or substance use to vote.
Do not have to have a background check to prevent me from pleading the fifth amendment.
Do not have to get fingerprinted to go to an assembly of peers.
The second amendment is already being infringed upon. Those absurd infringements postulated above on other rights in the Bill of Rights make no sense. So how does anyone talking out of both sides of their mouth say "I am thinking we need certain restrictions on gun ownership, but...I support the second amendment."
I am just baffled at the incongruence of the thinking that supports comments like that.
The teeth are being pulled slowly and surely on the second amendment. As soon as it is toothless then none of the rest of the constitution or the bill of rights is worth the paper they are written upon.
