All Rights Are Equal…

…but some rights are more equal than others.

If this story popped up on the wires, what would be the over/under on the number of cities, towns, and college campuses burned to the ground in violent protests across the country?

WASHINGTON — A decision by a South Carolina county is roiling the already contentious debate over potential abortion laws.

Lexington County’s Public Health Department is closing abortion clinics indefinitely.

“It is a temporary moratorium. We will revisit this,” says Steven Fairbanks with the agency’s South Carolina-National Health Care Commission. “We are taking everybody’s opinions and actions into account.”

Fairbanks is promising the department will re-evaluate its decision after lawmakers in D.C. and Columbia are done debating possible abortion bills.

“We felt that given the potential legislation on the state and the federal level, we are putting a hold on that activity for now until we can reassess after the legislative session.”

The move includes only abortion clinics that receive county funding and has led to the cancellation of several scheduled abortions.

The protests would be deafening.

The mainstream news media would be virtually crucifying those responsible for perpetrating this crime against humanity.

The damage to private and public property caused by rioting mobs of “progressives” would run into the millions of dollars.

BUT….

Since we’re talking about guns instead of abortions, it’s OK.

Nothing to see here.

Move along.

WASHINGTON — A decision by a Maryland county is roiling the already contentious debate over potential gun control laws.

Prince George’s County’s Department of Parks and Recreation is banning gun shows indefinitely.

“It is a temporary moratorium. We will revisit this,” says Anita Pesses with the agency’s Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. “We are taking everybody’s opinions and actions into account.”

Pesses is promising the department will re-evaluate its decision after lawmakers in D.C. and Annapolis are done debating possible gun control bills.

“We felt that given the potential legislation on the state and the federal level, we are putting a hold on that activity for now until we can reassess after the legislative session.”

The move includes only shows that would take place on county-owned land and has led to the cancellation of at least one event.
