Your editorial should have been titled, “How many straw man arguments can I throw into a badly written editorial?”
Your mythical beliefs about the founding fathers seem similar to Christian’s mythical beliefs about the universe. Completely unmoored from reality, so please just get over yourself.
These people you revere enslaved people and committed genocide. Stop worshipping them.
They were horrible people with barely tolerable ideas. Those ideas, particularly the 2nd amendment need editing similar to the editing of the 3/5ths rule. Your hero’s wrote and signed a document that legalized chattel slavery which caused generations of black women to be raped, impregnated, and then their children to be ripped from their arms and further enslaved. Black men to be whipped and beaten and worked to their deaths to further your hero’s promise of liberty.
Our country is a cesspool built on a graveyard of slavery and genocide and you want to argue that we need to protect ourselves from the government? I want protection from you and your kind.
Look to the French Revolution to see where your thinking is leading us.
