With a few and rapidly diminishing exceptions, the protections of the Constitution that we take for granted as White people are pretty much gone. Due process, speedy trial? Ask the people languishing in political gulags over misdemeanor trespassing on January 6th about those. Free speech, freedom of religion? Don’t make me laugh, chortle, guffaw or otherwise express amusement. The 2nd Amendment? We are in a nation with two very different and contrary sets of laws regarding firearms. In my state you can carry concealed without a permit and can buy any firearm or accessory on the market while just next door in Illinois it is becoming hard to buy much of anything more tactical than a side-by-side shotgun and we are only a few Congressional seats away from a new batch of Federal laws restricting our right to keep and bear arms.
Unless you are very old or “die suddenly for no reason whatsoever”, you are probably going to face a choice at some point in the near future. Will you give up your firearms or really embrace molon labe? Will you shut your mouth and keep your opinions to yourself or will you face fines, loss of employment, loss of access to basic services and even jail time? Will you permit the government to force you to cover your mouth with a useless piece of paper and get a shot that might kill you or will you accept the consequences of dissent?
We haven’t had to make those sort of existential decisions for a long time but they are coming and soon. Better figure out now what you will or what you will not do.
