Are You Dumber than a Sixth Grader?

Yesterday, there was this exchange during the Senate Judiciary Committee meeting before the vote on the AWB, Between Senator Cruz and Senator Feinstein:
Cruz asked the Democratic lawmaker whether she would consider it “consistent with the Bill of Rights for Congress to engage in the same endeavor that we are contemplating doing with the Second Amendment in the context of the First or Fourth Amendment, namely, would she consider it constitutional for Congress to specify that the First Amendment shall apply only to the following books and shall not apply to the books that Congress has deemed outside the protection of the Bill of Rights?”
Her answer, whic was nonresponsive, but instead accused Cruz of lecturing her on the Constitution. This sort of evasiveness has become all too common with the Left. The jig is up, guys. We know you have no intentions of following the Constitution, and we know you know we know. So answer the question. It's a legitimate question. The answer instead was of the sort that Nancy Pelosi gave when asked where in the Constitution Congress derived the power to make us buy insurance. "Are you serious? Are you serious!?" is not an answer to the question, a question that deserves an answer.

Because, the fact is that there is nowhere in the Constitution that gives Congress the power to require people to buy insurance. And, no, Feinstein would not do to the First or Fourth Amendments what she is proposing to the Second. But, instead of going back and rethinking their approaches to legislation that clearly goes against the Constitution, these Leftists are bound and determined to do it their way, because power is what they are after, and legislation is the way to give themselves more of it.

Incidentally, there is way to amend the Constitution.  It has been done 27 times, so although it is difficult, it is clearly not impossible. But these Leftist know that the American people would never give up their rights to weapons, so they go about it as though the 2nd Amendment read "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, except that semiautomatic rifles shall not be allowed to the people."
