Editor's note: I know this isn't "gay" related to most people, but when it comes to deporting someone who excercises their right to free speech in this country, I have to take a stand. As a gay man Ibeg everyone not to blame us for the bigotry of bigots and fools.

The White House has responded to the petition seeking the deportation of Piers Morgan with a statement from press secretary Jay Carney explaining the First Amendment.

The petition, which received well over 100,000 signatures (25,000 are required for a White House response) was led by conservative radio host Alex Jones.

He wrote, "British Citizen and CNN television host Piers Morgan is engaged in a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution by targeting the Second Amendment. We demand that Mr. Morgan be deported immediately for his effort to undermine the Bill of Rights and for exploiting his position as a national network television host to stage attacks against the rights of American citizens."

Actually, I heard on agood argument on tv the otehr day by a Second Amendment supporter who says there are NO LIMITS that may be placed on the people's RIGHT to bear arms.
His argumen is the plain texts says "The Right to bear arms shall NOT BE INFRINGED." To "infringe" mains you place "a limit". The plain text says that congress can NOT do that. Therefore, no limits whatsover.
If you're a literlaist and a textualist, then you have to agree wit him. If you have NO regard for what teh U.S. constitution says at all, then you don't have to agree with him.
For the record, I BELIEVE in SOME limits as do almost everyone else in the U.S. what THE ARGUMENT is about is WHERE you draw those limits.
I draw them at landmines, chemical weapons, biological wepaons, and nuclear wepaons. Other than that I think everything else is fine for people to own.
You canNOT take my tactical nukes away from me! It;s unconstitutional, and I won't stand for it!

Now excuse me, I'm thinking rabbit for supper. I'm taking the Chicago Piano.
