This Is Somewhat Refreshing

When was the last time you heard a candidate for president answer a series of "Yes or No" question with (gasp!) "Yes or No" answers?


Some people argue that the Second Amendment means different things in different places, and it's OK for New York City or Chicago to impose more restrictions on gun owners' rights than it is in Tennessee or Montana. Do you agree with that view?

Fred Thompson:



Will you support the position of the Bush administration that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, and appoint an attorney general who does as well?

Fred Thompson:


Granted, thosed weren't exactly questions that required a whole lot of thinking on behalf of the respondent, but toss those softballs at any of the members of the Karl Marx Admiration Society currently vying for the Democrat nomination for president, and see what kind of straight-forward response you (don't) get.

Think "Kerryspeak".

Oh, and speaking of gun-hating, liberal scumbags, here's what Rudy Giuliani (who, needless to say, can kiss my pale, white ass) had to say on the topic.

"Your right to bear arms is based on a reasonable degree of safety[.]"

Your guess is as good as mine as to who would get to be the arbiter of reasonable his little authoritarian empire. Seriously, that sounds like something Ted Kennedy would say, not the Republican nominee for president.

Telltale Rudy "Close, But No Cigar" Giuliani Quote #2:

"A person's home is their castle. They have the right to protect themselves in their own home."


What's that? You want to protect yourself outside your home? Yeah, right. What do you think you are, free?

My rights don't end where my driveway meets the road.

My home is my castle.

My country is my home.

Do the math, asshole.
