There’s quite a bit of what passes for “conversation” about the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States going on right now. Here’s what it says, verbatim:
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
Of course, being ostensibly a nation of laws, there’s been a lot of parsing of its meaning over the years.
Of late, as emotions and overblown rhetoric have ramped up, and sadly been exploited by those who disagree on What Is To Be Done about these things, we have now resorted to what I consider the Corollary to Godwin’s Law: When all else fails, and you have already implied, either directly or indirectly, that your opponent in the “discussion” is a “Nazi,” play the trump card and imply or say directly, that their point of view is “racist.” Game over, you win.
So, there you have it: If you support the Second Amendment of the Constitution, you’re a racist. If you support gun controls, you’re a racist. Unless, of course, you’re a person of color, in which case, you’re a racist.
