This is not as much a gun thread as a constitution thread.
"Our whole society controls how much you can drink, how many pills you can buy, we have controls we accept on everything else in this society -- except guns," Bouchard said. "Those things are all acceptable to us. But with guns most people will not even discuss restrictions
This is the last paragraph in cnn's report where they get to their point.This is where I start flaming.Of course they fail to point out,That while how much you can drink,and how many pills you can take are not Constitutional issues,they just lump them in like it doesn't matter.
The article starts with stats about handguns verses assault weapons.Even though the stats show the assault weapons ban makes no sense,At no time do they point out that the present attempt at assault weapons is the first step at the 2nd admendment.
CNN is not a news organization that is neutral,they are a lobbyist with a agenda.

I don't know where you are getting that the right hates the 1st/4th. If you are referring to Bush he was in no way a conservative regardless of the letter after his name. Rand Paul and other conservative leaders are the ones fighting to repeal the patriot act and other violations of the 4th. As far as the 1st. Well someone on either side is always trying to step on that be it the religious right trying to force church down our throats, the atheist left trying to ban any mention of religion in public or Obama trampling on our freedom to peacefully assemble.
