As public figures take a moment to recognize the fallen on social media this Memorial Day, don’t think some won’t take the opportunity to pretzel their message into patronizing propaganda. Hello Laurence Tribe, you must be joking, right?
This Memorial Day, the greatest gift we could give to those who gave their all for our survival as a free nation would be enacting national gun safety legislation.

As in, let’s take a step toward relinquishing our freedom in celebration of those who died to preserve our freedoms?
“Let’s honor those who sacrificed so much for our freedoms by gutting our Second Amendment rights” is not the dunk you think it is.
Also, you might want to meet a veteran or two and see if they agree with you on gun legislation.

It’s hard to know for sure if those who died serving our country and ensuring our survival as a free nation would be grateful for this gift proposed by Tribe, but we can make some educated guesses.
My friends who gave their all would say, “No, not now, not ever”. pic.twitter.com/GNflrgPYYa

No. Veterans do not want that. How dare you use this day to shill for disarmament. Scumbag.

The greatest gift we could give to those who lost their lives fighting totalitarian regimes that had strict gun control is to enact strict gun control. https://t.co/cz9jw5UU77

If Laurence Tribe is willing to take the heat for pushing his agenda on this day, at least let it be an innovative idea with some merit. But, no. Sorry Larry, gun safety is, like, already a thing.
Are you suggesting that all Americans go through the gun safety training that I did at age 12. It was state sponsored and offered through the DNR. Sounds like an interesting plan.

Since we can all agree on the importance of gun safety though, perhaps Tribe is being overlooked as the great uniter.
Gun safety is a must ♥️

But probably not, seeing as how additional legislation is considerably unappetizing. Besides, the sentiment just opens up the flood gates for all progressive talking points in relation to the holiday.
AND voters rights.
Until we effectively stop GOP abuse of power they will continue to destroy our democracy.

Can we not? Please, let’s save the polarizing propositions for another day. Or at least a separate tweet.
Absolutely not. Please stop using a holiday commemorating our fallen heroes to push your nonsense.

Ok, that’s enough. Back to honoring those who made the greatest sacrifice in the name of protecting our freedoms.
Remember them without your narrative. pic.twitter.com/RKLxdK7U3h

If you know what this day is really about then you know the greatest gift is to appreciate, remember, and continue fighting to maintain liberty.
