Obama Uses the First Amendment to Smack Down Deport Piers Morgan Petition
The White House has responded to the deport Piers Morgan petition by giving the right wing a little refresher course on the First Amendment.

Thank you for participating in We the People to speak out on an issue that matters to you.

Let’s not let arguments over the Constitution’s Second Amendment violate the spirit of its First. President Obama believes that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. However, the Constitution not only guarantees an individual right to bear arms, but also enshrines the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press — fundamental principles that are essential to our democracy. Americans may disagree on matters of public policy and express those disagreements vigorously, but no one should be punished by the government simply because he or she expressed a view on the Second Amendment — or any other matter of public concern.

We recognize that the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, sparked an intense, and at times emotional, national conversation about the steps we can take as a country to reduce gun violence. In fact, your petition is one of many on the issue, and President Obama personally responded by sharing his views on this important issue.

Silence is consent.

That's a no-brainer. These people who wanted Morgan deported simply because he spoke out in favor of gun regulations just show that they have no understanding of the Constitution at all.

is just a way to flatter your ego." -Barney Frank
