Do you mean having an OPINION is now punishable?

Oh, believe me - I fully support your right to have an opinion. The responsibility that comes with expressing said opinion, though, is having to defend it when other people think it's crazy. It is also my HUMAN RIGHT to question your assertions, after all.

Right - my lack of empathy and whatnot.

Just where is the correlation between firearms ownership and the outbreak of civil war? Just because someone chooses to exercise their right to own a firearm doesn't mean they are ready for war, nor does it mean they want to shoot their neighbor or fellow Countrymen.

If you find the US so scary, just stay over in whatever little Nanny Country you are in.
