Re "Rights aren't pick-and-choose" (Letters, March 5): Letter writer Chris Moore's equated words with guns, but ignored a major yet obvious difference between the two.
When was the last time that a collection of words, whether expressed verbally or in writing, did any physical harm when directed at someone or something?
To most, if not all, people with the slightest senses of relativity who aren't so obsessed with firearms, a gun is an instrument that packs infinitely more lethal and physically-destructive potential than any collection of words. Apples and oranges.
