The living Constitution

Rachel Maddow was on Bill Maher's show last February 28th where she argued that we should use an interpretation of the second amendment that would allow the outlawing of guns.

Ms. Maddow believes in the "living constitution" and she thinks that the living constitution has outlived the second amendment.

Nowadays when people say that they believe in a "living Constitution" what they mean is one that lives up to their expectations of what it ought to say and has outlived those parts of it that they don't like.
