On the 4th of July…

July 4th, 2008

…in an editorial critical of Barack Obama’s supposed moves toward the center, viagra generic shop the New York Time’s actually published this sentence:

We knew he ascribed to the anti-gun-control groups’ misreading of the Constitution as implying an individual right to bear arms.


First of all, order the Supreme Court just declared that the only people “misreading” the Second Amendment are the ones who believe it does not guarantee an INDIVIDUAL right to keep and bear arms.

Second, how does the New York Times think the people who founded this country won their revolution?

With harshly worded editorials?


They won it with the personal guns they kept for hunting and self-defense.

Americans believed in the right to keep and bear arms even before they were Americans.

And as I watch the red, white and blue bursting rockets outside my window tonight, I can’t help but remember that every firework is fueled by gun powder…and so was freedom that those fireworks are being set off to celebrate.

    I think the decision was a little narrower than you write, but you are essentially correct.

    Very colorful rhetoric, though. I almost got weepy.

    What can I say, Tim? I think I was a little high from all the fireworks. ;)
