Guns aren’t free speech

“Firearms are frequently becoming part of political life as Republicans loosen restrictions on carrying guns in public,” Raw Story says (in a story here).

“Across the country, openly carrying a gun in public is no longer just an exercise in self-defense — increasingly it is a soapbox for elevating one’s voice and, just as often, quieting someone else’s,” the New York Times says.

This will be short. If you have to brandish a gun to make your point, you don’t have a point worth listening to.

And guns aren’t speech. They’re intimidation and threats.
