Rubbish. Sheer stupidity and arrogance. They're all sacred and inviolate Rights. Only a treasonous fool argues that some Right they don't regard as being particularly critical to their personal liberty is any less sacred or inviolate than the others.<quoted text>
We wouldn't be able to defend our rights with it. You have a semi-automatic rifle to protect your rights? Got it, the government will use RPGs, Drones, Tomahawk Missles, Sonic Emitters. So either you want whack jobs with those, or your out powered and the second amendment doesn't really matter a whole lot. You're call. In the end, that amendment is as pressing anymore, because it wasn't in the intent at that time that weapons tech would get so high.
With the first amendment however, you can speak out and make the people who would use those weapons, not use them based on rational reasoning. If thats taken away, people can become sheep with no one to state the other side.
