Joe, Yes, I believe the 1st amendment would be void as you described, and if it wasn't it very soon would be eliminated without the threat of firearms to protect it IMHO.

Just thinkin outloud sorta speak
Yes and no.

Yes: The 1st and probably others won't mean anything other than what your told they mean.

No: The 2nd won't go away. It will simply be interpreted and ruled upon by the courts, any way that fits the circumstances that exist. Why abolish something you might need later? Can you envision an armed militia fighting against radical right winged nuts who are defending a "misinterpreted and outdated" Constitution? Now your an Enemy of the State... that is unless you conform.

Sounds crazy I know. Crazy enough to mirror real events.

If a conservative wrote a column with this venom it would be on 60 Minutes, and pasted on every paper, Tv, and radio station across the country, and the paper that allowed it would be run out of business for incompetance. Lets see what they do with this moronic columnist and newspaper. I'll bet that except for Fox, nothing. We now have a biased media in our country. We clearly saw this in the election, Benghazi, etc,etc. This was one of the concerns of the Founders; essentially the breakdown of the 1st Amendment's intention, that induced them to create the Second Amendment. Everyone thinks that free speech was the First Amendments singular intent. It was also intended to make sure that all viewpoints, including the government's, were objectively, and in an unbiased fashion, presented to the populace by the media. Not only ironic, but brilliant!

Here's another hateful and unabashed attack on gun ownership. They are even getting at congressmen now.

Journal News' release of gun owners locations has already led to a break-in. I'm hoping that precedent is set.
