New Strategy: Repeal the 2nd Amendment

I think that angle is one we'll be hearing much more in coming months, now that the anti's have lost the battle over what the 2nd Amendment actually means.

The Chicago Tribune is already on the ball calling for repeal.

I left the following comment on their blog and I really don't think there's anything else that needs to be said.

"Repealing the 2nd Amendment doesn’t make it go away anymore than repealing the rest of the Bill of Rights would allow the government to kick in my door and rob, beat, imprison and torture me with impunity. The 2nd Amendment is inherent and inalienable just like the rest of the Bill of Rights. Words on ink & parchment don't "grant" me the right to keep & bear arms, they merely codify a pre-existing right. My rights, all of them, exist independent of the Constitution."

You said that about as perfectly and succinctly as could be said. Bravo.

This is the same paper that ignored 2500 people lobbying for firearm rights as "not newsworthy" (really, they said that) yet Jessie Jackson busing in 200 people for an anti-gun protest gets front page coverage.

It seems almost everything Jackson / Sharpton do is considered "newsworthy" no matter how stupid.

Considering they printed this garbage I'm not the least bit surprised they ignored pro-gun resolutions in Illinois as well as the march on the state capital. Did other Illinois papers at least cover it?

Thanks for the compliment Brigid, and Kevin, it's an honor to be quoted on your site.
