New York Times Argues Against Second Amendment

Yeah, I know. Another Obama bites dog story. But as is typical of the Times, they miss the point that right in their own story.
"In writing the Second Amendment, the Framers didn't envision the kind of gun toting that is permitted across this country today..." 


"...I am not naïve enough to believe that doing away with the Second Amendment would do away with gun violence, but I know firsthand the impact of guns and gun shots on children. This nation was constructed and reconstructed in the aftermath of violent and bloody conflicts. Still, the Framers believed that not only the Constitution, but also the peaceful way the document was created, would penetrate the Americans' minds and change they engaged. The Constitution would be the only weapon needed unless there was an external enemy. "
What the author misses is that the Framers believed that the populace should be armed to defend themselves against their own government.

And then there is this from John Adams: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

What the Framers did not envision were pockets of immorality enabled and even encouraged by Democrats.
