"No right is more or less important, but we have restrictions on the 1st Amendment..."<quoted text>
Who would be best to do that?
Interesting that you make that comparison. Because all over the country conservatives are working to put all sorts of restrictions on the right to vote - gov't issued voter ID, ending early voting, ending same-day voting, ending Sunday voting, and so on.
So a Constitutional right where there's virtually no evidence of abuse and where a national election has never been swayed by in-person voter fraud, and conservatives are adding all sorts of restrictions.
But a Constitutional right where there is not only abuse, but that abuse costs the lives of 32,000 Americans every year - and the right shrieks at even the mention of any restrictions. Some even claim the existing regulations on guns are un-Constitutional.
Can you explain that? Because it seems enormously hypocritical to me.
I don't have a problem with gun safety training for kids. I think targeting "gangsta rap" is a red herring.
No right is more or less important, but we have restrictions on the 1st Amendment and conservatives are actively working to place restrictions on voting, so why is the 2nd Amendment off limits on the right?
We have penalties for abuse...there are no laws that can or will restrict free speech. You can yell "fire" in a theater if there is a fire...you can yell "fire" in a theater if there is not a fire because there is no law that restricts it that would force people to have their mouths duct taped to watch a movie. If you do yell "fire" without a fire, then you face penalties for abusing "free speech".
"...and conservatives are actively working to place restrictions on voting,..."
BS...what is wrong with voter ID...? You just said that "No right is more or less important..."...then why would you not support identifying someone who is going to vote...? You want to have positive ID of those that buy a gun do you not...? Well then, why not to vote...? Quit being a hypocrite.
"...so why is the 2nd Amendment off limits on the right?"
Because that's what the Bill of Rights tells the Gov't when it was passed...it's a restriction on the Gov't.
