The Sad Spectacle

I’ve cut the whole hearing to just the parts with our pro-Second Amendment panelists, and part of the Question and Answer. There was a lot of raw emotion on display, including one of the Newtown fathers, who we’ve seen before, and who could not testify without breaking down. It was truly a very unfortunate spectacle, and it was hard to watch. Nonetheless, while I can empathize with a grieving father, I can’t empathize with the politicians who engage in this kind of emotional blackmail with the intent to lambast me and those on my side as uncaring monsters. I think rights are important. I think constitutional rights are very important, and that’s a bigger issue than you, me, or anyone. That does not make us monsters, it makes us concerned Americans.

They hate you, and make that abundantly clear:

    I wouldn’t cross the street to piss on that guy if he was on fire.

    I’m halfway through the senators’ bloviating, and there is just so much fail, I can’t even keep track of it all!

    Nuke D.C. from orbit! It’s the only way to be sure!
