We can’t help noticing that the Left is MORE than happy to throw their rights away in order to feel safer from bad guys who don’t actually care about the law. Take for example, this ‘woman’ (we don’t want to assume gender and get yelled at here), who was upset that she didn’t know basic TSA rules and had to give up her toothpaste.
@ChrisCuomo my brand new tube of toothpaste was confiscated at the Orlando airport.. and a mentally ill kid can buy an assault weapon?

Who thinks like this? The TSA took her toothpaste so her immediate reaction is to make it political about the shooting in Florida? Not only THAT, but she thought enough to send it to Chris Cuomo who in turn thought enough of her situation to grandstand and compare Florida to 9/11.
Don’t look at us, we just work here.
Yes. Priorities. Mass shootings are the only threat this society chooses to ignore. For terror, we made accommodations to aspects of our rights, privacy and otherwise in the name of safety…but not with these shootings. https://t.co/LwqekxN1OV

Flying isn’t a right, Chris. Neither is flying with toothpaste.
Owning a gun is.
This ain’t rocket science.
"Because we gave up those rights, we should also give up these rights" is a pretty dumb way to approach your rights https://t.co/y4tgIgWD4q

Pretty dumb is putting it mildly.
Strange that no one ever thinks we should take back some of those rights we gave up in the #PatriotAct error. . .

And yet they sure do complain a lot about the little things, say like TSA taking their toothpaste.
Then again, all the signs in Broward were ignored, all the signs at Ft. Hood were ignored, etc…. Yet the solution always is to deprive the law abiding of their rights when authorities fail.

That’s what irritates gun rights advocates, that the Left NEVER really wants to talk about what happened or what actually led to the incident. Instead, they treat them as convenient vehicles to push narrative and advocate for an agenda that takes rights away from law-abiding Americans.
And then when it happens again (because nothing was done the last time) they go RIGHT BACK to their old arguments of blaming the NRA and accusing Conservatives of having blood on their hands.
