“…The Privilege Of The People To Keep And Bear Arms, Shall Not Be Infringed”

Friday, November 16, 2007

You may recall that in concluding a YouTube interview last May, the former Senator engaged in a segment called “right or privilege.”  During this segment, the interviewer peppered Edwards with a series of questions asking if he considered each a right or a privilege.  In response to the proposition of “owning a handgun,” and following a pregnant pause, came the former Senator’s one word answer:  “privilege.”  Also surprising is what Edwards feels constitutes a “right.”  To see the interview, visit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQFhdFfl6rM.
