Well, that explains a lot
Sometimes I ask how people can be so very “okay” with attacks, not just on the 2nd Amendment, but on all our civil rights. Since I largely grew up in and around newspapers, I thought I’d look at attitudes regarding the 1st Amendment. I came across these two pieces from 10 and 7 years ago. Now, I’m afraid I understand (and I’m more than a little depressed). My concern is based, in part, upon the relative ignorance of the population regarding our rights (First Amendment rights in this case) and by how much opinion changes immediately following a crisis (in the SOFA link compare results before and after 9/11). Read ’em yourself…and weep.
