This evening, October 19, 2007, at 8:00 p.m. EST, Arab Television Network (available on cable television) will spend about an hour interviewing me (in ATN’s Washington, DC, studio) and a panel of other interviewees who are pro and con on gun rights.
I have blogged several times about my support of strong protection for gun possession rights unless and until the Second Amendment is amended. I believe that weakening Second Amendment rights deserves robust protection of First Amendment rights. (Compare: (1) "Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances" (the First Amendment); and (2) "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed" (the Second Amendment).) Of course, I worship at the altar of the First Amendment.
Apparently the interview will broadcast live, and is available on cable television, for those receiving the Arab Television Network on their cable television plans. Have a great weekend. Jon Katz.
