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!
