Our founding fathers guaranteed us certain protections... The freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the freedom to own and play stringed instruments of all kinds. Those founding fathers didn't place restrictions on these freedoms. They didn't say, 'The right to play guitar shall not be violated except when used to play Green Day's Time Of Your Life over and over again in the common area of your dorm!' No! Where will these restrictions end? A background check when you want to take up the banjo? A five-day waiting period to buy a Telecaster™? An all-out ban on the Flying V™ or, dare I say, Whammy Bar™?! Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, it is up to you to defend our right to keep and bear guitars!
