Inspired by watching huge crowds on Southern California beaches during the Covid-19 pandemic without wearing masks and not social distancing and listening to them loudly claim that they have a constitutional right not to wear a mask.  Refusing to learn or believe in scientific facts that prove how to keep from spreading Covid-19.

Or put in a more logical context they believe that their right not
to wear a mask is more important than society’s right to protect everyone else
from them spreading Covid-19 to others!

News flash – individual rights “sometimes” have to yield to the protection
and welfare of the general public in extraordinary and emergency situations.  This is the reason the government has been given “The Police Power” – to protect the many from the few when life and health is in danger!!!
