I stumbled across a Facebook post gathering of Texas anti-gun activists who are concerned about the NRA annual meeting and exhibits taking place in Houston. As much as our opposition says that we’re the paranoid ones, their side has the woman speaking out who is convinced that the convention is full of people to fear who are “insane” and “nuts” simply for wanting to look at guns.
When challenged over why she would be fearful of law abiding NRA convention attendees, she spoke more of who she fears the most.
I don’t know what’s worse here. On one hand there’s the paranoia that Sarah Palin or Ted Nugent is going to hurt her because she wants more gun control. On the other hand, there’s the overinflated sense of self-worth that comes with the assumption that Sarah Palin or Ted Nugent would even give enough of a damn about her existence to even want to hurt her.
The funny thing is that as much as she fears people on the right being around guns out of a sense that they’ll want to hurt others for not thinking like them, she’s the one who hopes that the FBI is keeping an eye on everyone who attends who might think differently than she does. So much for free thought or free association.
