The spokesperson for the NRA and that little dictator from N.Korea seem to share some of the same logic.
I agree with the Mr.Burriss that an absolutist outlook on the constitution is outdated and nearly impossible. Many Americans believe in the Bill of Rights until specific issues that go against what society thinks is socially acceptable are brought into question. In my opinion some things should be protected, I agree that child pornography and classified information should not be published, not because the first amendment needs to be changed, but because it is morally wrong.
In the terms of the second amendment, I think that people should be able to have guns with in reason. I do not understand why a civilian in the United States would need a military grade automatic weapon unless they are a member of the military. But I do believe someone who has gone through the proper classes and has the required licenses should have the right given to us in the second amendment.
At the end of the day not every gun owning American is a criminal, and the people who are doing the school shootings and murders would not change their actions because we changed a law. They would have planned on breaking one law, what is to stop them from breaking another?
