“Compromise is a bad word these days,” Dick Metcalf, 67, told The New York Times of what he believes is the unyielding, give-no-ground ethos adopted by Second Amendment supporters in the U.S. today. “People think it means giving up your principles.”
To quote Ron White, he has the right to remain silent but he does not have the ability.
Following Metcalf’s dismissal, Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, told FoxNews.com Metcalf “absolutely did not” deserve to lose his post.
“If he suggested a ban on all guns, then I would understand that reaction,” Watts said. “But to say a fair exchange of ideas on how to stem the deaths and murders in this country because of gun violence is an act of heresy just reeks of no tolerance.”
When the enemies of your kin come to defend you, it becomes a big hint that you fucked up by several orders of magnitude. That you still have not figured out says a lot about your disconnect with reality.
I would not be surprised to see him become a spokesperson for some “sensible gun rights organization.”
