Good Morning from NYC where I’m thinking about the current political debate over the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Specifically, it occurs to me that the furor is focused on the wrong Amendment.
What we should be debating is whether the 2nd Amendment really gives even dirt-bag nut-jobs like the Virginia TV shooter Vester Lee Flanagan II, the right to keep and bear arms.
Another thought occurred when I walked from my morning WABC radio show at Madison Square Garden uptown to Fox News around mid-day yesterday. I was greeted outside the building near Radio City by the reassuring presence of heavily-armed NYPD officers.
After thanking each of them individually I walked in, happy that they were outside. Obviously they were there to discourage copy-cat killers, the deranged maniac wannabe’s who don’t even have the brains to come up with an original plan to kill on their own.
What I also thought about, was why don’t these psychopathic murder/suicides do the suicide part first? If they have a problem with the world, then just go to wherever dirt bags go when they die and leave the innocents to live their own destinies.
