I am really concerned about the number of people that simply disregard the Constitution as it relates to gun rights. When I mention this they just act as if the Constitution is some outdated document to be tossed aside at a whim.

I fear this is also showing up in other areas such as freedom of speech versus hate speech. I remember the day when Jewish ACLU Attorneys defended the right of Nazis to hold public rallies, but now I fear we are not far from seeing the Justice Department arresting Ministers for statements they make in a sermon.

I fear we are focusing too much on what is best for “society” by oppressing the freedom of the individual.
