A systemic failure...

I thought regressive taxes that made it harder for low income people to exercise civil rights were a bad thing?

There is a systemic failure to get folks to understand that the Second Amendment is enshrining a basic civil right, the right to defense... defense of self, community, and nation ensuring that the people have adequate access to the proper tools for that defense.

You'd never see someone putting an op-ed in a national outlet asking if we love the right to a trial by jury or the right to be protected against cruel and unusual punishment more than we love our kids.

"Oh, but people misuse their right to keep and bear arms!"

Hey, I'm pretty sure a lot of people on the Left think that a significant portion of the electorate misused their right to vote in 2016, and I don't see hair-shirted op-eds talking about reasonable restrictions on that.
