1A: Why Can't We Talk About Guns?

"Why Can't We Talk About Guns?"

What Second Amendment Evangelists Fail To Understand About Their Opposition

(Alan: Here is the email I sent to 1A this morning.)


When I talk with NRA members and supporters here are my talking points.

The conservative conviction that liberals will "take their guns away" is delusional. 

My own political instincts are liberal and others often consider me a radical.

But neither I -- nor anyone I know -- wants to repeal The Second Amendment.

In fact, there is no significant movement to abolish The Second Amendment. 

A recent MoveOn petition calling for 2nd Amendment repeal got a paltry 2500 signatures.

From "the left side of the aisle" the issue has always been the effective "regulation of guns" under aegis of The Second Amendment's assertion that a "well regulated militia" is "necessary to the security of a free state."
