Other individuals use soeech anonymity to prowl internet hang outs used by our youth and take advantage of them.

Consequently, while defending the right to free speech, I propose that universal background checks be instituted to make sure that those practicing free speech are not going to use it for evil purposes.

Mentally ill, people under the age of 21, racists, homophobes, pedophiles, convicted felons, misogynists, Christian bigots, members of militia movements like the tea party, members of corporate terrorist organizations like the NRA, will thereby be prevented from using our constitutionally protected right to free speech for nefarious purposes.

On the other hand, free speech will be protected for the weakest among us, when funded by billionaires, such as advocating for the right of people here illegally to be granted amnesty.

If universal background checks are good enough for other amendments, it is certainly good enough for first and consequently most important amendment.

What say you?


What says me!.. Seems like the only free speech is what you see fit..
Sorry pal, it doesn't work that way...

You must be a product of our progressive liberal school system....

I had always been told that gun control was hitting what you were aiming at.

Words do not kill.
Guns cannot kill or tell someone to kill like words can. A pistol lacks the strength to pull its own trigger so words are deadlier than guns.

A gun is designed for killing, regardless of the motive of the person behind it. So I disagree with your statement

Is this an attempt at ridicule?
If so, it doesn't work.

Of course people kill... they kill with guns, not words.

Does a word have the strength to pull the trigger?

Show me a gun that killed and I will show you the criminal... the gun is an innocent victim.

They cannot even keep people in jail because they don't have the space

They don't want to require voter ID to vote


And with all these problems, they want to create another monster that will still not stop criminals from getting or using guns and will only put another burden on honest, taxpaying citizens.

Shame on them who want to do such.

FDR referred to Joe Stalin as "Uncle Joe".

Even their soviet leaders have contempt for such people, and refer to them as "useful idiot", or so the legend goes.
