There’s a lot of debate again about the 2nd Amendment, and try not to burn yourselves on a hot take shared by Alyssa Milano:

Perhaps the most striking thing about that is…
15,000 people thought this was clever. https://t.co/7sALk43Ik5

The very purpose of having a written constitution that lays out fundamental rights and is difficult to amend is so people at a later time can’t just say “times change, y’all. We can do better.” https://t.co/GQ2Q9MPWSg

Also the year the 1st amendment was adopted.
And here we are.

There wasn’t any Twitter then either, so technically Milano’s tweet isn’t even covered under the free speech umbrella (or something)! *Eye roll*
OMG. Bless your heart. https://t.co/D1MLuNFTTq

Tweets weren't protected then either.
They only knew of quill pens and the primitive printing press.
C'mon Alyssa you've got to be smarter than this…no? https://t.co/aF0eMoMEdW

I'm just glad the masks are coming off.
They don't want to have "common sense gun reform"
They NEVER wanted that.
This was ALWAYS about a blanket gun ban.
Oh, and they HATE the Constitution. https://t.co/j9aj8UP7x6

Now do the 1st Amendment… oh wait, same applies. Weird! You are good at making a fool of yourself. Maybe we should restrict your speech b/c things change, we can do better! https://t.co/05y8tgYsF9

Also things like math, philosophy, free speech. Let's get rid of those too, right? https://t.co/07RQwqXfuL

See how quickly they went from "protect the Constitution" to "the Constitution is trash?" https://t.co/i3IDUT0aA5
