What This Country Needs Is A Pistol In Every Holster

A caller to KTTH's Dan Sytman Show this morning had a rather intriguing take on John Kerry's argument last night to a woman who'd asked him not to spend taxpayer dollars on abortions. Hiding his commitment to NARAL within:

I believe that you can take that position and not be pro- abortion, but you have to afford people their constitutional rights. And that means being smart about allowing people to be fully educated, to know what their options are in life, and making certain that you don't deny a poor person the right to be able to have whatever the constitution affords them if they can't afford it otherwise.

Mr. Sytman's caller after duly noting that there is no constitutional right to an abortion--and as Scrappleface has pointed out; if your name is Rush, you don't have a right to privacy either--wondered if Mr. Kerry's logic wouldn't require that, under the Second Amendment's Right to Keep and Bear Arms, poor Americans be provided with firearms at taxpayer expense.

Come to think of it...if the FLUBA has a First Amendment right to publish...why should it be restricted to this buggy blogging software? Criminal suspects who can't afford a lawyer get one courtesy of taxpayers, why not suspect bloggers getting their own television shows?
