Cowardice in gun rights circles

I wrote about this last year (probably after some other mass shooting), but gun rights advocates need to own the consequences of their position. If you are prepared to say that gun ownership is a sacred right, then you need to be  able to defend why the frequency mass shootings and the tremendous gun violence death rate are all worth it.

I’ve seen more than a few gun rights supporter friends of mine hiding behind the canard of “this isn’t time to talk about politics.” That’s nonsense now, and it’s always been nonsense. And I’m so proud of this Parkland student for calling out the Coward in Chief, too.
