Then stop being misinformed.

If someone has the right to do something, it means they have the right.

A right, according to Oxford is an A moral or legal entitlement to have or do something.”

Not an obligation. Not a necessity. Not a requirement.

An entitlement. Meaning that you can do it if you wish, but you do not have to participate.

If there is an entitlement where people can participate if they wish, it equally stands, logically, that people can choose not to participate also.

Therefore, if you have the right to have a gun in open spaces, there is also the right for people to NOT have guns in open spaces.

I have the right to spend all my money on chocolate. That does not mean that everyone has to spend their money on chocolate.

You have the right to carry a gun and have it on your person. I have the right to not be around people carrying guns.

Since a public space is for everyone, both people who carry guns and those who do not wish to be around guns, then accommodations need to be made for everyone.

How about this? You all can carry your guns in public spaces all of your own.

And those of us who do not want guns can have places to ourselves.

We’ve tried things like that before, and it backfired spectacularly, but hey, why not?

If you have the right, it does not mean I have the obligation.

Not emotional drivel. Logic. Pure and simple.
