Everyone of course has the right to express any opinion they want, either in the comments or in the forum. But I agree with gryhnd51's sentiment that we might be better served by remembering that this is a puzzle site, and focusing first on enjoying the experience of solving these puzzles.

I also support Gryhnd51's sentiments. Debates on politics and religion often bring out the worst in people, and many of the comments make me cringe. It's hit and run, really, because you never know whether or when you'll solve the same puzzle again.

Left, right, center, doesn't matter. Civility is the keynote. It's easy to attack people (and politicians) we will never see in person. Also, far as I can tell, no one's mind is changed; everyone just digs in their heels and shouts a little louder.

When dreaming, I am wise. Aren't we all?

In waking life, not so much.

Firearms is one word, not two.

Daniel D. Polsby, Professor of law at Northwestern University has written,
"no ambiguity at all surrounds the attitude of the constitutional generation
concerning the 'right to keep and bear arms.' To put the matter bluntly, the
Founders of the United States were what we would nowadays call gun nuts. 'One
loves to possess arms,' Thomas Jefferson wrote to President Washington."

Polsby continues, "Patrick Henry declared that 'the great object is that
every man be armedEveryone who is able may have a gun.' And James Madison,
author of the Bill of Rights, recognized 'the advantage of being armed, which
the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation,' whose
tyrannical governments are 'afraid to trust the people with arms.'"

"The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms." ---Samuel Adams

Indeed, in the most authoritative explication of our Constitution, The Federalist Papers (http://PatriotPost.US/fedpapers/), its principal author, James Madison, wrote in No. 46, "The advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation... forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any..."

Debates invariably bring out the worst in the Left. Antifa is the perfect example.
