This Esquire article, which starts off saying the gun control debate is over and gun control lost, suggests the NRA is loony tunes for saying gun control is a threat, then proceeds to call for more gun control. It ends asking why gun owners haven’t seized their movement from the fanatical bastards at the NRA:
My question is: Where in the hell are all the “responsible” people today? Where were they two weeks ago? Make no mistake. Without them, this profound problem cannot be solved. If they are the majority — and god knows, I hope that’s the case — then why don’t they wrest control of their side of the issue, and of the NRA itself, from the crazy mountebanks who are only in it for the buck? I am quite sincere about this, and I’d like any gun owners who read this blog, and especially any members of the NRA, to provide me with an answer. Where are you people?
I suggest folks follow through, and provide him with an answer.
UPDATE: We can see how well a defense of lawful gun owners participating in the political process is taken. As sample so far:
Because it is pointless to engage a debate with someone as transparently nutters as yourself.
Now go do your little end zone dance because I refuse to treat you as an intelligent person worthy of baseline respect.
This came after the commenter discussed how easy it was to refute the arguments made, but refusing to actually refute anything when called out.
