The hot takes about guns and the Second Amendment have been searing indeed, but few this week have been more scorching that this one:
The majority of gun owners say they own guns for safety and protection. That means it isn't primarily about freedom, as @NRA propaganda often suggests. It's about insecurity and false perceptions of safety.#NationalSchoolWalkout #guncontrol

…except for, oh I don't know, the FREEDOM to decide how to defend one's own life and the lives of their family without relying on the government? You mean that whole thing? Yeah. That. ? https://t.co/UqtgxBVvvI

Are people who own fire extinguishers insecure with a false sense of security?
People who have locks on their doors and home alarm systems?
People who take self-defense classes?

Safety and protection against whom? You are making the mistake of ass-u-ming a narrow view of whom and others I need protection against. https://t.co/2glLYChHVn
