Here's a light one for the day.
In the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre we've seen a nationwide debate about gun control, guns, and their role in American society. One thing we've seen is that the anti-gun-control people see themselves as the true defenders of American liberty. If you listen to them they'll argue that widespread gun ownership is our indispensable bulwark against tyranny.
They also complain about civil libertarians who are strong defenders of the Bill of Rights, but somehow overlook the Second Amendment in our civil libertarian zeal.
So here's what we're hearing today from the anti-gun-control civil libertarians: They don't like what CNN talker Piers Morgan has been saying, so they want to kick him out of the country.
That's right: according to HuffPo, over 30,000 people have signed a petition calling for the deportation of Piers Morgan because he's in favor of gun control.
They're calling his support for gun control “a hostile attack against the U.S. Constitution”.
Apparently in their view freedom of speech isn't part of the Constitution.
