You take away one of my rights…I get to take away one of yours. How would you like that?

This rant is the result of a earlier post that I replied to.


The topic of guns is an emotional issue for many, just like abortion, racism or religion.

Explain to me why millions of legal law abiding citizens should be penalized because of one nut job?

As far as I am concerned, once a topic reaches a point where decisions are made on an emotional level....it should be shelved until saner heads prevail.

But saner heads rarely prevail. So what I propose is this.

You take away one of my rights…I get to take away one of yours. How would you like that?

Minorities no longer have an equal status or a right to vote. Or abortion is once again illegal.

There will probably be many that say that the above have nothing to do with guns. But they all do. They are about rights.

What one right do you value most? Are you just selective or do you hold them all dear?

That said, I don’t advocate taking away anyone’s rights at all. But tit for tat only seems fair…doesn’t it?
