God knows I get into it. Debates with anti-gunners. During a recent back-and-forth, a frothing anti rejected my assertion that gun owners simply want to be left alone. “‘Left alone’ meaning they carry their guns around our families in public under a loose regime of laws and we shut the f*ck up,” he countered. I say yes to the first part – if the “loose regime of laws” means punishment for criminal acts that don’t involve keeping and bearing arms (save brandishing). And no to the second. I and my fellow gun owners do not want to deprive gun control advocates of their First Amendment right to free speech. My interlocutor called B.S. “Ask them if they believe anti-gunners have a right to advocate through every channel you do for tougher gun control laws.” I’m asking. Do you?
