JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

With the rash of people bringing firearms to health care town halls, I’m starting to wonder whether folks on the right are under the impression that there’s some sort of transitive property of amendments — like First, gives right to free speech and redress of grievances and second, gives right to bear arms, which equals the new virtual amendment “(1+2)” which is the right to armed free speech and redress of grievances.

Or maybe it’s just that the first and second amendments are right next to each other in order so they’re supposed to blend together.

I’m all against handpicked town halls and loyalty oaths at the gate, but I feel like maybe we can get a no fire arms at town halls movement going? Grassroots and everything …
