You Can always Tell Which Side Progressives Are On

From Nov. 16, 2015 WVCB Boston:
PORTLAND, Maine —A disabled former lobsterman who shot an intruder after buying a gun to defend himself sued his landlord Monday over a policy that prohibits him from keeping a gun in his subsidized apartment.

Harvey Lembo, who uses a motorized wheelchair, was warned by his property management company that tenants are prohibited from having firearms after he shot an alleged burglar in the shoulder after five break-ins.

Unsurprisingly comments on the article are taking the side of the burglar having a right  to a gun-free workplace.

It's not surprising that the people who argued against Lembo's right to have a gun had nothing to say about the fact that he would probably be dead if he hadn't had one. They argued the narrow point of the right of the management company to prohibit firearms (supporting a big corporation against a disabled person!) but I wonder if those same people would argue the broad point that "... the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
