Ah, yes.Â Persuasion by insult.Â The true harbinger of someone willing to engage in reasoned discourse.Â One of his commenters, though, gave me a good idea:
Therefore, if gun advocates were serious about using the magic of gun possession to protect the innocent from violent crimes…
…they would advocate or even create for themselves programs to provide firearm ownership and safe use training to impoverished inner city black and Hispanic residents.
If they are not willing to do so, it is because they only intend their arguments to apply when they apply to an imagined innocent *white* population.
That’s actually not a bad idea.Â I have to wonder if the people in Pro-Gun Progressive‘s neighborhood might be tired of being intimidated into letting the drug dealing scum run roughshod over their neighborhoods.Â Particularly in urban settings, the good, upstanding people need to be able to defend themselves.
Of course, Saturday Night Special bans, a favorite of the gun control crowd, most heavily fall on the urban poor’s ability to defend themselves.Â We’ve fought these laws time and time again, even though few of us buy those types of firearms.Â If we’re such a racist bunch, you’d think we’d support a law that would disproportionately disarm the poor and minorities.
I wonder if this guy is aware of the racist history of gun control in America.
