Have you ever noticed that the red-shirted redcoats of Moms Demand Action are a gaggle of “Karens” demanding to speak with the manager?
Although the ubiquitous Karen meme is a joke, there is nothing funny about a group that’s hellbent on taking away the rights of other people.
Karens are not problem solvers, they are complainers. They demand that others abide by their feelings and whims, whereas responsible adults take action for themselves.
Instead of simply deciding not to buy a gun if you do not want one, the Karens insist, demand and whine that no one else should have a gun.
Of course, never do they propose how to disarm violent criminals, because that is too difficult. They are blinded by a fantasy of civilian disarmament, disregarding basic civil rights, history and reality.
These tactics are actually a twisted form of political correctness. You cannot say certain things. You cannot do certain things.
Sorry, but we’re not sorry, Karen! We are not relinquishing our natural and God-given human rights because of your irrational fear.
Listen up, demanding Karens: you have no say-so over my life, and thankfully our Founders structured our government as a Republic, wherein individual rights are protected. I don’t care if I’m the last and only person in the USA who wants to exercise her Second Amendment civil rights. In our Republic, I have every individual right to do so, and that right is not subject to the whims of mob rule.
But the truth is, I am not alone. There are more like me than you can imagine.
So the Karens can flood city halls and capitols demanding to speak with the managers, but their mob mentality will not win the day. The Constitution, which is designed to restrain Government will prevail. And even if the Judiciary should fail to preserve the Second Amendment to the US Constitution, my rights pre-exist that document.
