Sen. Chuck Schumer D-N.Y. asserted on the Senate floor this afternoon that the Second Amendment was “not absolute” comparing restrictions on assault weapons to restrictions on child pornography.

“No amendment can be absolute,” Schumer said. “I believe you can be pro-gun and pro gun safety, just like you can be in favor of free speech but also against child pornography.”

Schumer proposed an assault weapon bans for civilians arguing that it would be an acceptable restriction on the Second Amendment.

“We can come together,” he said. “There can be a way of moving forward in the middle.”
