when is one right that we are guaranteed, superior to another right that we are also guaranteed? IMO, it can't be. the reason for this thread, is to point out some trends in opinions, and viewpoints on one right, vs. the other. i have seen, and not just on this forum, but on my Facebook feeds of those who believe in the 2nd Amendment, that silencing, or infringing upon another person's 1st Amendment rights to free speech and their right to their opinions. i have no love, or belief in what any anti-gun activist may have to say about guns, even up to including the such as Soros, or Bloomberg, or Obama, Feinstein, or any other person who comments about that guns are evil, or they need to be banned or whatever. whether it's outright banning, or just more restrictive gun control laws. doesn't matter. i don't buy their beliefs, or viewpoints, or opinions in the least. i don't agree with them in any way, shape, fashion or form, but i do respect their right to their opinions, their beliefs, their right to protest what they think as matter of free speech. and if you believe in your right to the 1st Amendment, and to the 2nd Amendment, then you also need to respect their right to free speech, their opinions, and their right to protest in what they believe is wrong, even, and maybe especially if you disagree with them. i consider it to be taking the moral high ground. now protesting, i fully support as well, and their right to do so, as long as it's peaceable, and done within the confines of the laws, as in not assaulting others, destruction of private and public property and the hindering of other citizens in their normal course of day to day affairs. once they start down that path, it's no longer protesting, but criminal actions. but i have seen some say that anti-gunners should not be allowed to protest, and it's because they disagree with their opinions. i have seen some say that anti-gun proponents should not be allowed to spend money on advertising, or campaigns, or funding protests. it's their money, and it's their's to do with as they want. it's their right to protest. it's their right to their opinions and viewpoints. if you want to fight them, then learn the truth, learn the facts, and use common sense, and reasoning, and logic to show the fallacy of their thoughts and opinions on guns, gun rights, and law abiding gun owners. fight them with facts and evidence and in a reasoned and controlled manner, since many times, they are going to result to such in a emotional response. and if you can't reason with them, then just ignore them, and fight against them by using the power of joining pro-gun organizations, emailing, writing and calling on your legislators and representatives to voice your opinions and where you are voting. there are ways to counter the anti-gun culture and it's activists, but it's never by silencing, or infringing upon their right to free speech.
