    As an aside, a couple of nights ago I heard U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Scalia being interviewed on radio, and he stated three different times that "... the United States Constitution gives certain Rights to the People."

    You'd think a so called conservative U.S.S.C. judge would know a bit more about the Constitution than that, wouldn't you?

    Wonder how Scalia will find on Heller??

    Position A: No gun control laws.
    Position B: The gun control laws we have now.

    I'm willing to compromise between those two positions.

    mike101,you are so correct.And what I should have added in my earlier reply to JohnBT,is that Leonard Pitts is a born and raised child of South-Central Los Angeles.As he grew up he witnessed the carnage of gang and turf warfare in the Watts Zone(1965).
    His brother-in-law was killed in S.C. LA, one of the worst crime areas in the U.S., by a murderer with a gun 20 years ago.
    All of this has shaped Pitts ideology as it would most of us.
    This is not to excuse his total ignorance of the 2A,which merely affirms ,not grants ,the right to keep and bear arms,a blind spot for so many liberals.
    But,I believe he can be reached.Like Soybomb's admirable attempt,we can only try.

    You folks just said what I was gonna say... discussion stops before it's started, because rights are not granted in the constitution.

    I usually identify with Mr. Pitts. He is realistic and refreshing,especially in a sea of very left oriented OP-ED writers. This piece shows a new side to me, the fact that he presumes rights are granted to us by the bill of rights is very scary. To his credit I would not be surprised in the least if he responded to any well worded email.

    Let's compromise, I'll keep my guns and you'll stop complaining about them as I'm a law abiding citizen! ;)
