The BBC struggles with 2nd Amendment

The BBC carries a report of the welcome news that Tennessee is striking down unconstitutional limits on the right to bear arms, but, unable to comprehend what freedom means, its reporter goes scurrying around trying to find people who oppose the move, including one bar owner who states:

"We don't need vigilantism inside my business," he says. "I'm a gun owner, I have a gun at my home, but I keep it there, not at a public place where many people's lives can be threatened."

There's not much point to a gun if it's locked away where you can't get it, pal. An armed assailant is hardly likely to wait while you jog off home, and owning a gun has nothing to do with vigilantism.
