  •  Gun owners are certainly a minority (34% according (6+ / 0-)

    to Gallup survey) and yet they want to impose the constant threat of violence on all of us.  They play games like saying that since nearly 50% of households have a gun in them that means 50% of Americans own guns (not true as those households average 3-4 people per household).  They try to say that since there are 270 million guns and 300 million Americans (nearly one per American, which is outrageous as pointed out in this piece in the Washington Post) this basically means that guns are as common as Cars and that all Americans want them around.  The NRA and their apologists make up stuff and spew talking points ad nauseum to "defend" themselves from the oppression of the majority.  Enough of the oppression this minority suffers - when are we going to address the constant fear that the majority lives in because of this minority?  When are we going to stop the NRA from terrorizing our own people?

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
