As with so many pundits, Neish tries to spin his way out of a trap of his own making. Believing guns are evil blinds him to fact and logic and he stretches both to make his point.
Truth be told, the question has been answer by the Supreme Court and only those that disapprove of the rule of law would continue to dispute the findings. The 2nd Amendment, like the 1st (and the rest) belongs to the individual and not some amorphous government entity. We used to call this “grasping at straws”.
He further degrades himself intellectually by lumping all of those that support the 2nd Amendment in the “ultra-conservatives of the far right”. Nothing could be farther from the truth. He continues to embarrass himself by reviving the tired but much used refrain that the Founding Fathers only support the people owning single shot, muzzle-loading types of weapons. He must also think that they only supported 1st Amendment protection for those that used quill pens and set type by hand. Of course computers, electronic transfers, the digital age and the author’s iPhone would not be covered.
He then takes another page from the Brady Bunch playbook by announcing firearms were only for hunting and putting meat on the table. Funny, I’ve read the Constitution and the words hunting never appear. He continues his rant by claiming individual weapons are no match against the US military but I would refer him to the not so distant past history of another country that took on the US military with such weapons, Vietnam.
Wait, wait, I take it all back. I just realized Neish suffers from a debilitating illness and should be given a free pass to express his thoughts as part of a therapy. I see at the end of the article that he holds a doctorate degree in education administration (a running joke in the academic world) and you can’t get any more mind numbing an warped than that. Sorry Mark for bringing logic to a knife fight.
