Ed Rasimus has left a new comment on your post "What passes for critical thinking at the Wall Street Journal":
At issue isn't the protesting against the administration, but the prudence and wisdom of flaunting the firearms at Starbuck's and park gatherings. We shouldn't question the right to do it and we should always be aggressive in defense of the Second Amendment, but we have to recognize that there is the aspect noted in the WSJ which is that it gives the hoplophobes something to illustrate their meme about redneck, dangerous, militia types who are a social hazard.
We act against our interest when we do that.
Do we really? Is it really in our interest to worry about whether we scare the straights or not?
Your thoughts, Irregulars.
