What They Say Isn't What You Get
Who said this? "The broad principle that there is an individual right to bear arms is shared by many Americans, including myself. I'm of the view that you can't take a broad approach to other rights, such as First Amendment rights, and then interpret the Second Amendment so narrowly that it could fit in a thimble."
It sounds great. Surely millions of gun owners must cheer this speaker.
There's just one little problem: Our enemies are suddenly sounding like our "friends." And our "friends" are acting exactly like our enemies.
In the battle for the Second Amendment, our very own legal scholarship, our own words, our own political positions, are now being used against us, exactly as a Jujitsu master uses his opponent's momentum to his own advantage. And just as a martial artist flips an opponent, the terminology of "individual rights" is being flipped on its head by ruthless people who have no regard for the English language, the Constitution, or our right to keep and bear arms.
