I read where that supermarket rag with the stories about Elvis and his alien love child has gone bankrupt. So where did this headline come from?

Liberal, Anti-Bush Editor Wonders, 'What if the Second Amendment is for real?'

Duck! Didn’t you see that flying pig? It almost hit you! In other news related to flying pigs, a liberal, anti-Bush newspaper editor has come out in favor of our 2nd amendment rights.

The Connecticut editorial is titled: Time to admit the 'gun nuts' are right

Unfortunately it took a particularly gruesome triple murder to bring the editor to this revelation.

What if the Second Amendment is for real? Is it possible that it should it be revered, just like the First Amendment?...

Is it possible that the Second Amendment is not a quaint and antiquated remnant of a world that will never return, but an idea as relevant and sound today as when it was written?

Is it possible that we are not talking about the right of the government to form a militia when there is no standing army, but the right of the individual to defend himself, or herself, against both tyranny and lawlessness? Maybe we are talking about the right of self-defense -- the right of the individual to take up arms against a government that wants to oppress, be it foreign or domestic. And the right of the individual to defend himself against criminals, brutes, and barbarians when local police seem unable to stop them.

Might the Second Amendment matter almost as much as the First?

I think the answer is yes.
I stole this from my foxy friend Mary Katharine Ham at townhall.com:
