The 1st Amendment Was Devised With The Printing Press In Mind. Fact.
I just stumbled on the most interesting Tweet by Piers Morgan at Twitchy.
The 2nd amendment was devised with muskets in mind, not high-powered handguns & assault rifles. Fact.—

Here’s my reply.
@piersmorgan The 1st amendment was devised with the printing press in mind, not your stupid CNN show. Fact.—

It is time to make the left live by the rules of their own stupid logic.
If the framers of the Constitution were talking specifically about muskets in the 2nd Amendment, then surely the 1st Amendment only applies to the manual printing press. Under such a narrow interpretation of the Constitution, TV networks like CNN are a clear violation of American law, as is the internet and Piers Morgan’s Twitter account.
If the evolution of technology doesn’t apply to law abiding American citizens under the 2nd Amendment, it certainly doesn’t apply to British citizens living in America and enjoying the protection of our 1st Amendment.
