The political theater over gun control took on a new dimension this week, as House Democrats decided to stage a sit-in protesting the lack of action on the issue.

We give them points for knowing where the television cameras are, and for their use of Twitter, which is how they spread their sit-in protest message far and wide.

As for their understanding of constitutionally guaranteed rights...well. They certainly understand the right of assembly, and of free speech. But due process and the right to bear arms? Their weaknesses in those areas remain as wide and deep as ever.
