Terribly flawed analogy.

Pierce is usually so excellent. Rage and ideology are unfortunately clouding his logic here. He is comparing and conflating unfortunate side-effects and technicalities of other liberties with criminal activity related to guns. The criminal equivalents of the 1st, 4th, and 5th Amendments (etc.) are murderous cults, powerful drug cartels, mob racketeering, and so on. Yet, strangely, we only blame the right itself when it comes to the Second Amendment.

Using rights to commit harm is wrong, but that only means that the harmful crimes ought to be prosecuted, not that the rights themselves ought to be tossed into the dumpter.

MSF / Doctors Without Borders: Absolutely unimpeachable in their words and deeds.

Donald Trump: Hopefully soon to be impeached for his deceitful words and criminal deeds.
