Why Exactly Is That?

House Speaker Paul Ryan thinks that the President should go hunting to better understand the Second Amendment.  Really.
"Yeah, I don't think he hunts, no," the speaker replied. "Maybe he should, then he can understand the Second Amendment a little bit better."
Why exactly, Mr. Speaker, is that.  The Second Amendment has nothing to do with hunting.

If the Lighwrorker wants to understand the Second Amendment better, he might consider doing a little 3-gun shooting.  Or take a CCW course.  Or, go to the Library of Congress and read the Federalist Papers.

But, Mr. Speaker, the idea that the 2nd Amendment has anything to do with hunting is like thinking that the morning commute has anything to do with Formula 1 racing.  Yeah, they both use cars, but otherwise there is no comparison.

The more the Speaker opens his mouth, the more I'm convinced he's a putz.

As I recently heard - The founding fathers were not worried about the deer coming.

Or spend a week in the south side of Chicago/ lower 9th ward in NOLA alone. Getting out of ones ivory caste surrounded by hundreds of armed guards and mingling with the sometimes dangerous unwashed masses can give perspective.
