Gun Advocates try to Disseminate the Bill of Rights, Hilarity Ensues

The second amendment reads: A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Apparently Piers Morgan doesn’t like guns. I haven’t seen this show (yet) so I’m not sure what he’s done but in the small interviews I’ve heard on Howard Stern I’m sure that whatever is happening on his show is messy.

It was called “Meet the Bloggers” and I thought it would be about the intersection of blogging and marketing but it went into a direction I hadn’t expected, which was just blogging. Since I had my own agenda I tried to address the fact that bloggers aren’t journalists (I think the moderator disagreed with me). There were three other people waiting to speak so I didn’t get to quite finish my thought which was that bloggers are …
