If liberal anti-gun idiots have proven anything over the last decade, it’s that they’ll never stop trying to thwart the Second Amendment. They’ve been rebuked time and again by the court system, but that doesn’t stop them. Like a particularly virulent colony of termites, they keep coming back even after the strongest pest control measures.
Thus, it’s no surprise to see many of them support an Indiana private community after a supervisor fired a longtime employee for admitting that he owned a gun. After all, these liberals will fight to the death to protect civil rights…unless the victim in question is someone they don’t agree with.
Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell?
Nino Ferlaino worked for Lakes of the Four Seasons for 21 years before being confronted about his gun ownership. According to a local paper, Ferlaino had engaged in conversation with his co-workers, and it had come out that he owned a gun. This led his supervisor, Doug Weiss, to ask him if it was true. Ferlaino admitted that it was, and that was enough for him to be terminated.
Ostensibly, the reason for the termination was actually the on-the-job conversation, which Lakes of the Four Seasons insists was a violation of their zero-tolerance policy. This, however, may put them on even shakier legal ground.
Ferlaino isn’t going to take his termination lying down. He has filed suit against Lakes of the Four Seasons, asking for damages as well as an injunction against their ability to ask employees about personal firearm ownership. According to a new Indiana state law, Ferlaino may have a very good case. The law states that employers may not prohibit employees from keeping a firearm secured in their personal vehicle, out of sight. It also prohibits employers from asking questions about gun ownership.
The Other Side of Discrimination
Wherever this case leads, it stands as another example of the kinds of discrimination that are just A-OK with liberals. They’ll be the first ones to make a stink when a minority is turned away from a job, but they’re surprisingly silent when a gun owner is fired. If Muslims want to write Sharia law into the American judicial system, liberals are there to support them wholeheartedly. If a private Christian baker refuses to make a cake for a gay wedding, though, batten down the hatches!
This is just more of that same hypocrisy. Liberals won’t be satisfied until every conservative principle is wiped from the face of the country. They don’t see what we see. They see an America infested with unfairness and bigotry, and they think we would be better off if we were more like Europe. More taxes, less freedom. No individual responsibility. If a person is rich, he is therefore evil. Unless of course he supports liberal causes, in which case he gets a pass.
We’re only 20-something years on from the days of Reagan, but it’s sad to see how far the country has fallen since those heady days. In both culture and policy, America has shifted sickeningly to the left. If we don’t get some sensible people in office soon, I fear we may lose what’s great about the country we love so dearly.
