Probably because so many (like yonder comedians) are so ready and
willing to use the First to trash the Second and its supporters both,
and for no good reason outside of their own partisan politics. Then
people like you do not speak up in objection to the former/defense
of the latter.

Stick that in your philosophy and process it.

Either tell it to Gonze and Morton or shut up and sit down, since you
otherwise seem to favor trivializing the real reasons for 2A with such
