Quote of the Day Pt. 2

"The exercise of rights always upsets people who would deny those rights. I submit that protecting the sensibilities of those who would deny others their rights should be rather low on anyone's list of priorities."

- Kurt Hofmann of Armed & Safe

Damn right! What are our rights worth if we refrain from exercising them because they "offend" certain people? Hell, I'm of the opinion that most things worth saying are offensive to someone. None of us would publish our blogs if we were worried about our 1st Amendment rights offending people who don't like free speech. I write in this blog because I want to and am free to do so. If people don't like what I have to say they don't have to read my ramblings. If they stumble upon my blog and are offended that's not my problem. Likewise, if they're offended by the lawful and constitutionally protected carrying of arms that's not my problem nor should it restrict the free exercise of my rights.
