Obama, Gun Control, and Abortion

Gun Control is in the media a lot recently as Obama and liberals promote their goals of restricting availability of guns. Proponents state they’re not taking rights away, only making “reasonable” controls and restrictions, the idea constitutional rights are not absolute (can you yell “fire” in a movie theater, for example).

But compare a constitutional right (2nd amendment) with a non-constitutional idea (abortion).

Those pushing restrictions, taxes, or a 7 to 14 day wait to exercise your Constitutional 2nd amendments rights as “reasonable” complain when an abortion might require a 24 hour wait before terminating a baby.

“Reasonable” is all in the eyes of the beholder, and as usual, varies with the political goals desired.

Abortion and gun control, while not on the same constitutional level, expose hypocrisy and inconsistency of the groups promoting one while trying to deny the other.

Of course, they hope nobody notices.

    I apologize that this may not be the appropriate place to ask these questions, please direct me the appropriate place if there is a better one.

    I’m trying to figure out something about constitutional conservatism to understand it a little better.

    If the Constitution is “not a living document” are those who adhere to constitutional conservatism against amending the Constitution?

    Or does the “not a living document” term mean that it’s not meant for the interpretation to be adjusted over time give the circumstances of a particular era?

    Lastly, if it is okay within the context of constitution conservatism to amend the constitution, how is that justifiable and not viewed as adjusting the interpretation of the Constitution (amending it) for the realities of the era in which the amendment took place?

    Thank you in advance for any time put into answering these questions.
