Maybe there's hope for the 4th Amendment

as it appears that more Americans have come to appreciate the intent of the 2nd. An interesting result from a recent Gallup poll:
A record-low 26% of Americans favor a legal ban on the possession of handguns in the United States other than by police and other authorized people. When Gallup first asked Americans this question in 1959, 60% favored banning handguns. But since 1975, the majority of Americans have opposed such a measure, with opposition around 70% in recent years.

Read it all That's gonna make the NYTimes ed page crazy. Snicker. Now if we'd just reclaim the 4th Amendment from the thugs at Homeland Security. And then there's the 1st, with its guaranteed right to peaceably assemble to seek redress of grievances, like maybe a grievance against crony capitalism and bought politicians. Buy a pistol, paint a protest sign.
