Begun the war against our Bill of Rights has

Beginning with the first amendment:

Schumer on Fox: Fairness Doctrine ‘fair and balanced’

Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Tuesday defended the so-called Fairness Doctrine in an interview on Fox News, saying, “I think we should all be fair and balanced, don’t you?”

In 2007, Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), a close ally of Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) told The Hill, “It’s time to reinstitute the Fairness Doctrine. I have this old-fashioned attitude that when Americans hear both sides of the story, they’re in a better position to make a decision.”

The Brady nutbunch didn't even wait for Obama to claim victory before declaring:

Obama Victory Means ‘Stronger Support for Sensible Gun Laws’

The strong Election Day showing for Democrats signals stronger support for “sensible gun laws” in this country and a “significant setback” for the National Rifle Association, a gun control group said Tuesday night.

The Brady Campaign issued a statement even before Sen. Barack Obama was declared the winner, saying the political environment is better than it’s been in years for “progress on gun violence prevention.

"America should take notice that reasonable policies on guns are carrying the day," said Paul Helmke, president of the Brady Campaign, which endorsed the Obama-Biden ticket.

The Brady Campaign says Obama “consistently supported common sense gun laws in the U.S. Senate and in the Illinois State Senate. Senator Biden not only has supported, but also has been a leader for strong gun laws throughout his career in the U.S. Senate.”
