17. So you have an opinion about civil rights and no opinion on the 2nd Amd. That's unusual because the
Second Amendment protects a civil right, the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense.

If someone claims to support civil rights and opposes RKBA, then that is a hypocritical position.

Have a wonderful day, :hi:
