Sarah Palin’s idea of family life is really weird. Asked in 2006 what her top three priorities for families would be if she was elected Governor, she included “cracking down on” “attacks on our 2nd amendment rights”.
Huh? The second amendment to the Constitution of the United States protects the right to bear arms. Arms. As in weapons.
What attacks against 2nd amendment rights was she talking about? How does Sarah Palin think that the effort to restrict weapons ownership is one of the top three priorities when it comes to having government work to help families?
Sarah Palin didn’t mention anything about improving the economic conditions upon which families depend. She didn’t mention protecting the clean environment within which families live. Palin didn’t even mention improving health care, and without good health care, a family can’t even survive.
No, Sarah Palin thought that protecting the right to own a gun was more important to families than any of that.
I’m not saying that I want to repeal the second amendment or anything like that. But I have no idea at all what makes Sarah Palin think that having weapons around is more important to families than a good economy, a clean environment and health care.
