An example of right-wing authoritarianism
I frequently complain about left-wing authoritarianism. However, it infects both the left and right. Here is a right-wing example. Although I am a strong Second Amendment supporter, I don't think those who are pro-gun should always get a free pass. I try not to be an ideologue and absolutist even when it comes to Constitutional rights. In a prior post I agreed with a case deciding that it did not violate the First Amendment rights of convicted sex offenders to bar them from social media popular with young people. I agree with this decision striking down a Fla. law pushed through by pro-gun activists. In some cases, the First Amendment trumps pro-gun activism.
