The Bill of Rights, with Your Host,
Piers Morgan

National Review Online, by Charles C. W. Cooke

Original Article

Posted By:Mr. Know-It-All, 12/5/2012 1:51:45 PM

My fellow expatriate, Piers Morgan, appears to be on yet another quest to embarrass himself, this time by taking the Constitution’s amendments one by one and demonstrating in public that he has no idea what they mean. In the wake of Bob Costas’s anti-gun rant, Morgan took to Twitter to complain about the Second Amendment: Piers Morgan ?@piersmorgan The 2nd amendment was devised with muskets in mind, not high-powered handguns & assault rifles. Fact.

Comments:
Check out the Twitter exchange here. Morgan gets put in his place, LOL.

Oh, Piers Morgan is such an embarrassment to any expat Briton with half a brain. How long as he been in the U.S.? Couple of years? People study the Constitution for decades and still differ with each other. As a naturalized American citizen, I think I know the Constitution better than Piers Morgan and it makes me feel more secure to know that there are many ex-military with weapons in our subdivision.

He´s a former liberal who´s been mugged just waiting to happen.

The Second Amendment is about an armed populace....period.
It is so the citizens can resist tyranny.
Go back to the land of bad teeth and bad cooking Piers, you big pasty thing you.

Since the reason for the second amendment is the preservation of a free state, and the only force capable of taking away that freedom is an oppressive government or invading army, the case could be made that the definition of "arms" would include any hand portable weapons typically available to any army. I would exclude explosive projectiles and portable rockets as they could technically be considered artillery.

Hey Piers, if the 2nd Amendment doesn´t apply to revolvers and semiautomatics, does that mean that the 1st Amendment doesn´t apply to radio, television, or the Internet?

The British rifle of the time was a short barrel affair, heavy. The Americans had developed a longer barrel, twisted bore rifle for shooting squirrels. THAT is the reason(one of ´em) that we prevailed in the Revolution.
The 2nd Amendment was written with the VERY LATEST TECHNOLOGY in mind.
Piers Morgan is a J.O.

Morgan is such an idiot, he believes that not agreeing with him is an attempt to deny him his First Amendment rights. That is liberalism in a nut-shell.

The dunce was once given a first-hand education on the subject by Ted Nugent in front of a national television audience and he still doesn´t get it.

And I submit that #5´s replay above is actually better than that of @carolsjroth!

#4, in the oft cited but little explained Miller v Colorado case the ruling of the Judges mirrored your thinking except...

Since the second was meant to assure a civilian militia force it would reasonably only cover weapons capable of current military service. Weapons other than a military service type could be regulated by the state. The left latches on to the latter. The court ruled that since Millers sawed off shotgun was not a military weapon (even in 1930 they forgot WWI and the trenches). the state could regulate it.

They forget the part where the state coulkd not regulate or restrict ownership of military weaponry such as fully automatic machine guns and portable cannons.

Under that interpretation your AK-47, BAR, Grenade launcher and shoulder fired anti-aircraft missile could not be regulated. Granpas Italian sporting clays double barrel shotgun could be banned.

Lie-berals far too often use the ´´freedom of speech´´ as a weapon to shut down their opponents. It´s very effective, especially if they throw things like ´´racist´´ or ´´sexist´´ in with their diatribe.

And, far too often, conservatives let them do just that.

That is why they were able to destroy this republic on November 6th.

In Colorado, efforts to recall a third anti-gun politician ended this morning with the news that Senator Evie Hudak, who represents the communities of Arvada and Westminster, will resign. Hudak apparently decided that the election, which if lost could have flipped control of the state’s senate, was not worth the risk.

RALEIGH, N.C. – After a year and a half behind barbed wire as a prisoner in World War II, 2nd Lt. David C. Cox had just about reached his breaking point. Deliveries of Red Cross parcels to Stalag VII-A had all but ceased, and the U.S. Army bomber co-pilot and his fellow POWs were subsisting on scanty rations of bug-infested soup and bread. Outside the wire, Adolf Hitler´s forces showed no signs of giving up.

Gov. John Hickenlooper signed bills Wednesday that place new restrictions on firearms and signaled a change for Democrats who traditionally shied away from gun control debate in Colorado - a state with a moderate streak and pioneer tradition of gun ownership and self-reliance. Hickenlooper´s signature of the bills comes exactly eight months after dozens of people were shot in a movie theater in suburban Denver, and on the same day as the executive director of the state´s Corrections Department was shot and killed at his home.

My favorite memory of Ed Koch is a moment from one of the Democratic presidential primaries of the Eighties. He was in his hey-day: mayor of New York, omnipresent media yak-in-the-box, grand rebbe whose hand had to be kissed by any presidential candidate hoping to score with Jewish voters not only in NYC but Florida as well.

Illinois Senate Democrats advanced legislation late Wednesday to restrict semiautomatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, pressing forward with new gun control measures in the waning days of the session over the objections of firearms groups. Amid the developments, the Illinois State Rifle Association issued an “urgent alert” to its members warning them that Democratic legislators were trying to push through last-minute anti-gun legislation.

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
