    Same as "shall not be infringed". But they don't mind overlooking that

    The press should remain free and unrestricted. If people arenít smart enough to decipher the bull**** being fed to them then weíre on a path to nowhere anyway. May as well let it all disintegrate when they get their way so at least we will have historical proof that the liberal agenda is a dream.
    A nice thought, but it's not going to happen. How many alibis for the serial failures of socialism/communism have we heard yet its proponents are not the least bit dissuaded

    If we fail to resist this, we are subjected to the troubles needlessly; and there are real barbarians at the gate. If we fall, our like may not be seen again

    Trump has a way of pointing out injustices between the 1st and 2nd amendment in a way that really drives people to discuss why we have limitations on one but not the other.

    That isn't the point of the bill at all. This really is, as Kirk suggests, A Modest Proposal.

    One of the few real powers POTUS has is that of the bully pulpit. Him voicing his opinion does not revoke or restrict anything. Executive orders are valid only to the extent of current law unless Congress chooses to allow overreach as with Obama. I for one enjoy a discussion that starts to compare the expression of Amendments. How about having the same requirements for voting rights as we have for 2nd Amendment rights? Sorry, off topic.

    President Trump doesn't scare me nearly as much as those who will stop at nothing to undermine him and the Electors that put him in office.

    And sometimes you support and expands rights with satire and wit.

    It is not Lucas's fault that some are self-righteous, unread dolts who would not know Johnny Swift even if you hit them with his entire catalogue.

    He is basically throwing the same **** at them about 1stA just like how these people are throwing **** about 2ndA so they'd know how it feels when a right that matters them are attacked. I'm not bothered by it.

    And these freedom of speech is also what causing all the segragation, hatred. But that's freedom and I'm ok with that.
