If you've got a gun, you can say whatever you want. (1:31)

THEY DON'T WANT TO;IT'S A FEDERAL REGULATION.

THE SAME FEDERAL GOVERNMENTTHAT MAKES IT MANDATORY

TO EXPLAIN SEAT BELTS TO PEOPLE

WILL NOT ENACT ANY SORTOF GUN CONTROL LEGISLATION.

THEY DON'T TRUST USWITH SEAT BELTS

BUT HANDGUNS, THAT'SA WHOLE 'NOTHER THING.

( laughter )

WHEN'S THE LAST TIME SOMEBODYWENT INTO A CAFETERIA IN TEXAS

WITH A SEAT BELTAND KILLED 23 PEOPLE, HUH?

( laughter )

I KNOW WHAT PEOPLE SAY.

"HEY, WAIT A MINUTE.

"SECOND AMENDMENTOF THE CONSTITUTION

"OF THE UNITED STATES:

'EVERY AMERICAN HAS THE RIGHTTO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS.'"

IT IS, I LOOKED IT UP.

FIRST AMENDMENT,OF COURSE, IS THE...

FREEDOM OF SPEECH--THANK YOU VERY MUCH--

WHICH MAKES SENSE,IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT.

THE FIRST AMENDMENT'SFREEDOM OF SPEECH

THE SECOND AMENDMENT'S THE RIGHTTO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS.

HEY, YOU GOT A GUN, YOU CAN SAYWHATEVER THE HELL YOU WANT.

PEOPLE WILL EVEN PRETENDTO BE INTERESTED.

HERE'S THE THING:IT WAS WRITTEN 202 YEARS AGO

WHEN THERE WERE THREE MILLIONAMERICANS, NOT 285 MILLION.

I DON'T THINK OURFOUNDING FATHERS HAD ANY IDEA

HOW THIN THE GENE POOLWOULD BE STRETCHED, FOLKS.

I THINK IF OUR FOUNDING FATHERSCOULD COME BACK NOW

AND SEE THE PEOPLE WALKINGAROUND ARMED ON THIS CONTINENT

THEY'D GO, "I DON'T THINKWE NEED THAT NUMBER TWO.

NOT EVERYBODYSHOULD HAVE A GUN."

THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
