Why gun people don’t trust anti-gun people

What a great article from a college newspaper

I’ve come to realize after the Sandy Hook shooting that the reason we can’t have a rational gun debate is because the anti-gun side pre-supposes that their pro-gun opponents must first accept that guns are bad in order to have a discussion about guns in the first place. Before we even start the conversation, we’re the bad guys and we have to admit it. Without accepting that guns are bad and supplicating themselves to the anti-gunner, the pro-gunner can’t get a word in edgewise, and is quickly reduced to being called a murderer, or a low, immoral and horrible human being.

Word!

Read the whole thing, not least because CSGV hates it.

Threatens to kill? Let’s read that “threat.”

We want the crime and killings to stop as much as you do, so to my fellow citizens who are anti-gun I say: So long as you deny our humanity, so long as you malign our dignity, intelligence and wisdom, so long as you seek to shade us under a cloud of evil that we do not partake in or support, so long as you tell us that because we own guns we are terrible people, you will prove yourselves absolutely right in that we won’t come to the table to talk with you.

And there will be no hope for resolution but through victory by force initiated by one side or the other, God help us, for we will not plow for those who didn’t beat their swords into plowshares.

Yep. Once again CSGV reads “We won’t be your slaves” as “We’re coming to kill you all.”

Makes you wonder what they really want to do to us.

    They know we are non-violent, but must distort and portray us this way to get their disarmament agenda furthered. As we like to joke, if we were as dangerous as they believe, these anti-rights freaks would all be at room temperature. Also, if they are so smart, I must ask, why would they insult and provoke someone known to be armed and accused of being violent.

    Clearly, they don’t believe their own propaganda.

    If they did, they would not poke the bear that wants to be left alone to hibernate. Problem is, the bear is now awake and pissed off!

    Never Again!

    “Reasonable Discourse” as promulgated by the Anti-Gunners reminds me of the “Reasonable Discourse” promulgated by the Pro-Slavery side in the 1850’s. Hopefully, we don’t have to descend into a state of Civil War to resolve the argument.
