SHALLICK: This White House uses the First Amendment to protect flag burning, to protect pornography, to ban school prayer. Why, when the Second Amendment clearly says that the government will not infringe upon a citizens right to bear arms--
TOBY: It doesn't say that.
SHALLICK [exasperated]: Toby--
TOBY: In fact it doesn't say that at all. [Sardonic.] It only says that if you remove some words from it. It says "A well-regulated militia, being necessary for the security of a free state, the government shall not infringe." The words "regulated" and "militia" are in the first sentence. I don't think the framers were thinking of three guys and a Dodge Durango.
SHALLICK: You don't really know what the framers were thinking, do you?
TOBY: No. But I do know that if you combine the populations of Great Britain, France, Germany, Japan, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark and Australia, you'll get a population roughly the size of the United States. We had 32,000 gun deaths last year; they had 112. You think it's because Americans are more homicidal by nature? Or do you think it's because those guys have gun control laws?

dearcoketalk: In response to your response to the “guys as the key and girls as the lock thing”. I think your response was really brilliant, but I want to bring up one problem I caught. Using the word “retarded” is damaging. I understand that you were trying to state that the person who said this “simile” was being ignorant and a jack ass (as well as his friend for thinking it was “cute”) but...

balltillifall: busterchaplin: I never hear anyone arguing over whether The Darjeeling Limited or The Life Aquatic is their favorite Wes Anderson movie. Oh, I’ve heard arguments about them- I’ve had arguments about them… but never about which one is most-beloved. Quite the opposite. Likewise, I never hear anyone debating… My favorite Wes Anderson film is The Darjeeling Limited. And mine is...
