John Edwards on what is a right and what is a privilege

Edwards is asked what he considers a right or privilege and I was shocked by his answer. Here is a lawyer and someone who has pledged an oath to uphold the constitution when he was a Senator and as president will do the same admitting that while he believes that we have a right to an education, healthcare, living wage and access to the Internet, it's a privilege to own a hand gun! I think that if I cared about my right to bear arms, I certainly would not vote for this guy.

It's a little long but listen to the whole thing, it will give you a little insight into what an Edwards presidency would look like (if you want to skip that and get to the point, it's in the last minute of the interview).
