The Complex Truth About the Second Amendment

Liberals keep using the: "you can't yell fire in a crowded theater" discussion as a way of showing that it is o.k. to restrict the 2nd amendment. But, if you look at this argument it does not hold up. Yelling the word fire in a theater, when there is no fire, is wrong and it should be forbidden. But, if laws were passed to demand that the word fire is not to be spoken at all for ever, than such a ban of the word “fire” would be absurd. Banning a firearm is the same as banning the word fire. Discharging any firearm wrongly-even a musket gun should be illegal . This we all agree on as clear minded people. But, to say that semi auto firearms need to be banned and all legitimate use is forbidden, is very wrong, like banning the word fire!

I would say you cannot yell fire in a theater for the same reason you cannot abitarily discharge a Firearm in a crowded theater. You would set off a panic. So the argument does not hold up because you cannot just walk into a theater and fire a gun without getting arrested. The point is if you yell fiire when there is a fire your OK a Hero, if you go to your car and take your concealed weapon and stop a mass murder in a theater you are a hero just the same.

I liketorespond that you can and shold yell "fire" in a cowded movie theater..... if there is a fire. Not doing so would endanger the lives of all those people. And suppose someone took away my ABILITY to yell "fire". They would all burn whil I sat silently by.

The debate on gun control lately has been going like this: Liberals propose various restrictions on allowable firearms, acceptable owners and approved ammunition. Conservatives exclaim, "Second Amendment!" And the debate, at least in the mind of the latter group, is over.

The Second Amendment, they believe, is not just one important provision of our basic government document. It's the first and last word on the subject of firearms.

Viewing the proposals offered since the Sandy Hook massacre, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., concludes the supporters intend "to completely GUT our Second Amendment rights." The Utah Sheriffs' Association warned President Barack...
