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. 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 a law was passed to demand that the word fire is not to be spoken at all, for any usage, 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 a semi auto firearm needs to be banned and all legitimate use is forbidden, is wrong, like banning the word fire!
