What Conservatives Hear When Listening To Progressives Talk About Gun Control

To commit these heinous crimes it requires a person, a means of slaughter, and an extreme ideology. The pen is mightier than the sword, therefore…

We need to ban people’s access to dangerous ideas over the internet. The internet wasn’t even around when the constitution was written, and the founders did not imagine such a more powerful way to communicate. In their time, ideas were passed in pamphlets and papers, you couldn’t reach billions of people in less than a second. Technology has changed and it is time that the limits on free speech do too. Afterall, rights aren’t absolute, your right to free speech does not trump my right to not be offended or feel unsafe. Your fanatic, cult-like, blind worship of the internet does not outweigh the death of all those who died at the hands of these extremists. If you don’t support banning ideologies, or access to these dangerous ideologies, then your hands are soaked with the blood of all victims of senseless and hateful ideologies.

Everyone should be required to be certified before they go on the internet. If you need a license to drive a car, you should need a license to access the internet because of how much more dangerous extreme ideas are on the internet. That way we can ensure that everyone passes a background check to make sure they are mentally stable enough and mature enough to be exposed to dangerous ideas on the internet and not harm others. Close the at-home loophole where you attain the internet at home. If you suspect someone close to you of becoming radicalized, we should flag them and deny their access to the internet, until they can prove that they are fit to access the internet again. This is all common sense, but those politicians who won’t vote for these laws are clearly beholden to ACLU.
