    Are wanted by these folks.

    So, it's about them, but others don't have the right to feel safe?

    •  You are allowed to feel anything you want. (9+ / 0-)

      But you can't obstruct other peoples' Rights based only on your personal feelings.  That's not how Rights work, else we'd still have Segregation.

      •  The racists thought they were being oppressed (0+ / 0-)

        by the unconstitutional demands of the rest off the country.  So in that respect this is exactly how our democracy works.  We don't have to yield to the selfishness of evil people.  We can enact laws that disarm them so that actual rights are protected.  Thats how rights work which is why we no longer have segregation.

        •  What selfishness was going on here? (0+ / 0-)

          What "evil"?

          And guess what?  It is an "actual right", no matter how much that chafes you.

          You are simply trying to endorse a new form of segregation.  Congrats.

      •  But those that want guns everywhere ARE (0+ / 0-)

        Restricting the right of others to be safe in public, when you consider how many of the gun carriers are not that "responsible" when they carry.

        Do we not have a right not to get shot "accidentally" by the careless?
