If the 2nd Amendment is interpreted literally, why not the 4th?

There was a really nice essay by Cenk Uygar in the Huffington Post this morning. You can read it here.
I sent him this comment:
Cenk's argument is crystal clear and 100% valid...and not likely to change anything with the Conservative Republicans. Too bad.
The Fourth Amendment, which gives us the right of Habeas Corpus and hearkens back to the Magna Carta, is the deepest of American philosophies and, I daresay, if any of the Founding Fathers had to pick and choose among the first 10 entries that make up the Bill of Rights, it is the one they would be least likely to change.
I'm hauling out my flintlock musket, however, to protect my home and property (and wait for the general Militia call). I only hope I don't shoot anyone by accident (my vision is faltering with old age.)
