Common sense isn't so common, unfortunately.

time for him to pony up and do an actual news/debate show. cant hide behind the satire your whole career when its obvious we turn to him for a dose. imagine if he actually debated his guests, long over due imo. he always has a good angle and makes a solid, objective point.

My theory is that what Americans call "common sense" is actually "wisdom" which is not a common attribute.

So, you're saying we should outlaw religion, because dystopic history = Inquisition/Salem Witch Trials/Nazism (to a lesser extent on Nazism).


American history says we've always been able to own guns...we still have that right. But we don't have a "well regulated militia". And even if we did, the government has the military. No amount of fire power in your gun case is going to protect from tanks and explosive ordinances.

I am all for the right to own guns, but I agree that regulating what types and how powerful those weapons are is the right move and I think it's the reasonable position.

imo, the main thing that would protect the people from true tyranny of the executive branch is the fact that I think many soldiers (and generals) would outright defect. not all, but I think many would... at least right now.

With a D president they would. They shut up and followed orders when Bush was war criming it up.

We the population are the militia, as I've said, we are the largest standing army in the world, by far.

The 2a does not dictate the firearms I may own, just that I may posses them. The colonist were better armed than the british, wish you could change that?

They made that before they even IMAGINED high-caliber, automatic weapons. It also doesn't dictate that the government cannot enforce regulations on WHAT you can own. It is constitutional to regulate. Sorry, that's the fact of the matter, and it's correct.

Also, it doesn't say the people are the militia. A militia can form, but it can and will be regulated. In other words, they'll tell you how powerful you will get...and that includes your weapons.
