    What happened yesterday is part of the price we all pay for your gun ownership. Until you own up to that price, you're part of the problem.

    And I assume you mean you're a handgun owner, as that is what I addressed.

    We were not ahead of our time, we led the way to our time.

    •  No, I'm not a part of the problem (5+ / 0-)

      hyperbolic responses are, however, part of the problem.  When you can link me personally to any tragedy, single or mass, let me know.

      You don't want a conversation -- you want to force your opinion on the entire nation -- sort of like the NRA.

        But the fact is you support an industry that is pumping millions of guns into our society every year. On top of the hundreds of millions already here.

        How about you just stop doing that, it would make the world better, and perhaps you could sleep better at night without rationalizing your needless ownership of handguns.

        •  Do you drive a car? (6+ / 0-)

          heat your home?  Use electricity?  Then you are supporting industries that are pumping millions of pollutants into the air which shorten many millions of lives.  You are supporting dangerous and ruthless mine operators.

          Your sanctimony is duly noted.  There's a reason why fringe people are rarely brought to the table when an adult conversation is about to begin.

          And I sleep perfectly well.
