CSGV too cowardly and intellectually bankrupt to defend their positions

To my absolute absence of surprise, my first attempt to comment on a Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) Facebook post was nearly instantly met with "Reasoned Discourse."

The post in question was this one:

"Although bad laws, if they exist, should be repealed as soon as possible, still while they continue in force, for the sake of example, they should be religiously observed ... There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law." - Abraham Lincoln, January 27, 1838
Here was my (now censored out of existence) response:
Bad laws "should be religiously observed," eh? Not even pretending to honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his civil disobedience, I see:
One has not only a legal, but a moral responsibility to obey just laws. Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.
- Martin Luther King Jr.
I submit that an individual who breaks the law that conscience tells him is unjust and willingly accepts the penalty by staying in jail to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the very highest respect for law.
- Martin Luther King Jr.
I could add some Thoreau and Gandhi quotes, too, but there's clearly no point--your love of authoritarianism brooks no trifling with quibbling about such inconsequential concerns as "injustice."
Funny--not long ago, they pretended to express deep (if not particularly musical) admiration for Dr. King Lying hypocrites tend not to take long to out themselves, though.
