    You are making the point for us.

    Free speech zones sprouted with the GOP's desire to leverage 9/11 and strip away civil rights, and became a "term" when the GOP decided to hold their convention in the liberal bastion of NYC - (known hostile territory) - in August, when all the rich people are away on vacation.

    The right to live one's life, raise one's children, express one's religious views, freely assemble, vote, and so on all have practical limits that attempt to balance the exercise of one's right with the potential infringement of others' rights.

    But you are right, if you are a person of color, you still haven't achieved even the most basic right to freely walk around free from harassment, detainment, and potentially violent death. And guns in the public sphere are part of that problem.

    •  A gun doesn't innately infringe on you. (0+ / 0-)

      If it is the object, then the negative impact upon you will happen no matter who happens to be carrying it.

      Is it the object, yes or no?

      And, if it is the object, are you willing to ban it from all domestic hands?

      Now get yourself a song to sing, and sing it till you're done.
