Eric Zorn isn’t an advocate for civil rights.
He not only thinks privately, but writes publicly that rationing civil rights is just fine. He wrote on the Chicago Tribune website: “One gun every 30 days is more than enough to allow for the exercise of 2nd Amendment rights, so Chicago ought to go ahead and impose that limit.”
Bless his little heart.
We ask Mr. Zorn if he feels that rationing people to a single newspaper is enough to allow for the exercise of 1st Amendment rights?
How about attending church one day each month is enough to allow for exercise of that aspect of 1st Amendment rights?
How about limiting 3rd Amendment rights precluding the forced quartering of soldiers in one’s private home to only the first Tuesday of each month?
Should we limit 4th Amendment rights against improper search and seizure to one day each month as well?
The 5th Amendment protections against double-jeopardy in criminal trials, or the right to not have to testify against one’s self, or the right to a trial – should those be limited to one time each month?
You see how wrong-headed and ignorant Zorn’s proposal is, right?
