Why Liberals Should Love 2nd Amendment

No, I’m not about to get preachy here. But today I read one of the best, most concise and passionate (but rational) arguments for why liberals should embrace the second amendment. And it was written by a diarist at Daily Kos:

In no other country, at no other time, has such a right existed. It is not the right to hunt. It is not the right to shoot at soda cans in an empty field. It is not even the right to shoot at a home invader in the middle of the night.

It is the right of revolution.

Let me say that again: It is the right of revolution.

Wow. Go read the rest. Now.
