Bill Maher asks what Constitutional rights we should lose--2nd Amendment chosen

Maher, who has shown his hostility to the concept of private gun ownership before, then came in with the "resistance is useless" argument against the Second Amendment as a bulwark against tyranny. He went on to explain that an armed citizenry would not have a chance against the federal government, because "The government has nuclear weapons, and the Marine Corps, and the F-22." This, of course, ignores the fact that would-be tyrants want a people to tyrannize, not a blasted, radioactive charnel house, and that the Marine Corps and F-22 have not changed the fact that we will soon be leaving Iraq with the final outcome still very much in question there. Maher has clearly not read "A Handgun Against an Army." [More]
