They'd be calling for a revolution if the title read:
No Liberty in the Library: Curbing the First Amendment in the Stacks
The Left just doesn't see the right to defense - against evil, including tyrannical government as pro-liberty. Talk about purblind.

Of interest to your banglist.
The comments at the site are very thoughtful and pretty balanced given the source and politics of librarians.

(First, Do No Harm)
That’s weird since the only reason anyone goes to a library anymore is to take a bath in the sink, warm up or watch porn.

(HealthCare IS NOT a right. The RIGHT to keep and bear arms is.)
that public libraries across the country are also finding themselves having to grapple with Second Amendment radicals.
So those defending the Bills of Rights is considered "radicals?"
The author of the article can always immigrate to a country that doesn't permit the freedoms stated in the Bill of Rights.

(US$ - I owe you nothing. Euro - Who owes you nothing.)
Guns, particularly openly borne guns, do not belong in libraries, which thrive on an inviting environment.
Yeah - "inviting" a mass murderer.
I'll carry in the library - and they'll never know.

is in support of massacres? Was he applauding Sandy Hook? What a sicko.
Hmmmmm....we are slowly limiting the number of places that a crazy person bent on killing can go. Glad to hear the libraries are now safer. Now if we can only protect our schools!

(Criminalizing self defense contributed to the Sandy Hook massacre.)

I demand Libraries be rid of their First Amendment Rights!
No speech for the anti-Bill-Of-Rights crowd.
Libraries must become book free zones to protect the innocent from dangerous ideas.

Listen to the mewling of the lambs. They would prefer to leave themselves defenseless to the very sort of predatory animals that their other “morally purblind” policies allow to skulk and haunt the public libraries.
I guess that they would prefer to take a rusty shank from one of them rather than be defended by the likes of me.
Either way works for me.

I try to avoid gun free zones. They just seem like target rich environments for freaks.
