Equality Is Not About Gun Control | Blue Oklahoma
The Oklahoman published an editorial Sunday that smugly purports to apply superior logic to the same-sex marriage issue, but it's based on a false comparison, relies on a sweeping generalization and really has no valid point. Is the newspaper opposed to same-sex marriage or not? The answer to that question doesn't seem to be the point of the commentary, but its claims really beg the question. The editorial's argument is that gun right advocates have a better legal claim for their beliefs because of the clear language of the Second Amendment while same-sex marriage advocates have a weaker claim for their beliefs because the Fifth Amendment and the Equal Protection Clause in the 14th Amendment don't specifically mention marriage.
