PJ Tattler wrote about this the other day and I’ve mentioned it before: Supporting gun rights is not enough. When we fight for things like the 2nd Amendment, we’re not just fighting for the freedom to own a gun, we should be fighting for all our freedoms equally.
The crisis our nation faces today is the current war on Civil Rights from all sides of the political spectrum. From the Republicans who helped craft and pass laws like the PATRIOT ACT, to the Democrats who renew this legislation and want to limit our gun rights. We have an overzealous DHS which isn’t afraid to flex it’s muscle and intimidate us law abiding folks. We have our State and Local police who would rather spend time generating revenue and harassing folks for non-crimes than fighting actual crime. All the while our Rights suffer under attacks from every direction.
The fight for the 2nd Amendment is a current one, but it’s only one small battle compared to the rest of our Rights. Just keep that in mind. We’re not pro-gun, we’re pro-freedom!
