  •  Sure, I'll stay civil and think it's a good call (2+ / 0-)

    But, I won't back the heck down from fighting against the decades-long effects of the NRA protecting a practically maverick industry and fomenting FUD in too many right-wing people about black helicopters filled with black people.  I compare this to the Republican push for privatization of government's public funds and sowing distrust in public institutions (and roles, people) at the same time: it's social conditioning that has led to seemingly reasonable conversations becoming almost impossible due to historical biases with little value to offer.

    If someone abuses facts to offer more "truthiness" on gun culture and violence in the USA not being related, I'll treat them like any other polarized person who might have a story to tell, but possibly a dangerous one that needs to be stripped down and possibly taken to pieces.  In front of our community.

    Facts can be harsh enough, regardless of our emotions involved.
