"The American press corps is very, very focused on the First Amendment and will go to great lengths to make sure that right is not diminished. " Except that "or the free practice thereof" part of the exclusion clause. Can't have Christians openly practicing their religion, now. They might start thinking their rights come from God, or something.

The next time the "press" tries to tie the RKBA to muskets tell them that the Press in that day was a HAND-CRANKED Gutenberg press and NOT electronic media or high speed linotype presses.

So machine guns are bad, but machine presses are OK? Hmm...

What about large capacity paper supplies?

We all know the term "The Bill of Rights" which are the first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution although few of us (including me) could name them.

Hint: None of them start "Thou shalt not …" Rather they tend to start "The Government (or Congress) shalt not …" Keep that in mind.

The First Amendment is a catch-all of rights upon which the Congress may not trample: It protects an individual's freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and freedom of the press, as well as the right to assemble and to petition the government.

The American press...
