Those Cub Scouts Apparently Take Their Guns Pretty Seriously

Unearthed recently from a growing pile of things The Curmudgeon should write about was a New York Times story about a Cub Scout pack in Colorado that went to meet with a state senator.  The boys were told to prepare questions for the senator, to write them down, and to ask them in a courteous manner.  They asked questions about the environment, race relations, the proposed border wall, and more.

One of the boys asked the following question:

I was shocked that you co-sponsored a bill to allow domestic violence offenders to continue to own a gun.  Why on earth would you want somebody who beats their wife to have access to a gun.

The state senator didn’t skip a beat:  she answered the boy’s question and moved on.

Today’s cub scouts: it’s not about rubbing two sticks together to make a fire anymore

The people who run the scout pack didn’t skip a beat either:  a few days later they called the boy’s mother and told her that her son was no longer welcome in their group.

It appears that at least some people who are so adamant about second amendment rights don’t feel quite as strongly about first amendment rights.

The Cub Scouts of 2018:  opposing points of view not welcome.
