+ - Webcomic Author Fired for Talking About Firearms

Submitted by Plekto

Nothing wrong with that — so was talking it over with his friend and decided to get a .22 for target shooting(paper targets and such at a range). This is a typical choice for someone who wants to learn how to shoot as their first firearm. His co-worker overheard and complained. Management fired him in a what's becoming all to typical knee-jerk reaction.

It's pretty appalling how low our society has sunk if you aren't even allowed to talk about your 2nd Amendment rights in public anymore.
