Since my political beliefs are broad spectrum, I find the current consternation by the anti-gun gun crowd interesting… they are upset that the four gun control measure failed in the senate today. Now, we are talking about a population that is all about rights and civil liberties.
These same liberties include the premise that one is innocent until proven guilty.
Enter the crowds pushing for rumors to equate a criminal conviction… ask any vet is they have seen careers destroyed by unfounded rumors or not. So you are going to take away a popular right, based on a rumor?
Tell me that that feels good and why generations of solders put their lives on the line… Between this and the Muslim fear mongering of the Right, it sure reminds me of the McCarthy era.
Here they call for shaming of those that chose to stand on American judicial principles if nothing else… I think the shame is being misdirected. Shame should fall to those that want to make take away our founding principles. Closer and closer to the tipping point we go.
