2nd Amendment Crusader
The media had this to say about me and while it is possibly exaggerated in tone, the real problem with it is that my stand has been unwavering, ALL civil liberties are equally important. You don't get to have a favorite that's sacrosanct while others are negotiable. If you tell the government that infringing the "Right to keep and bear arms" is ok, why are you surprised when they learn the lesson? The lesson is that frightened people want to be taken care of and are willing to give things up for it, like their Rights. Like "Freedom from unreasonable search and seizure" or (oh my) "Freedom of speech". These things are about all Americans, not just the likeable ones, all of them. Forgetting that leads to real peril.
