Richard Dreyfuss Sours On Second Amendment?

posted on July 24, 2015

Full disclosure: We’ve some unrepentant fans of Neil Simon’s “The Goodbye Girl” here at A1F, and in consequence have always been grateful that Oscar-winner Richard Dreyfuss was at least a tepid defender of the Second Amendment. And in some deep water too, as he showed here against elitist loon Piers Morgan in 2013.

That’s why his latest foray is disheartening, and it truly falls apart when he compares cars and their licensing to firearms ownership. This decades-old, tiresome notion is simply insupportable if you trouble yourself to read about the true basis of the right.

So here it is again: Fresh from a successful insurgency, no one knew better than the Founding Fathers that the last organ of society to entrust with exclusive firearms possession or knowledge of where THE OTHER firearms were, is government. As history repeatedly shows, they simply come and take them, whereupon tyranny writ large begins anew.
