Point blank

civil war cannon

Ideas, hurled like cannon balls, are indiscriminate in their destruction. A special license should be required before shooting off your mouth. Spewing ignorant words in a spray of hatred and bigotry, bullets of misogyny and intolerance raining down without any regard for who they wound.

Sticks and stones… words kill more people than guns and knives. You can’t know where your aim might hit. How far the concussion of the blast will reach, who around your target will also fall.

You don’t care, you know your rights. Your first freedom is speech, but do you know the consequences of hate?
