The 2nd Amendment hardliners say gun control is the step right before we lose the 1st Amendment Right to Free Speech.
But I’d venture that a bigger threat to Free Speech is this response to pro-gun control arguments: “U should be shot & killed. Hopefully with an unregistered gun. U r a clown.” (One of many messages we’ve already received today at my job.)
So they want to protect the Right to Free Speech by murdering those who speak out for gun control? Seems legit.
If you are about to write out a comment saying that someone who opposes guns or supports gun control deserves to be shot, just understand that you’re making the case for taking away guns from you specifically better than anyone else ever has.
