    the drive to arm everybody and then to let armed people shoot others down in the street for the slightest provocation.
    I know a lot of people who support the Second Amendment (and agree with the SCOTUS on what it means). Not a single one of them has ever shown any sign of wanting to arm everyone (i.e., including those who don't want to be armed) or of having any desire to "shoot others in the street for the slightest provocation".

    The trait of desiring to "shoot others down in the street for the slightest provocation", in my anecdotal experience, tends to be the behavior of those who are not even engaged in the political process, let alone the "gun lobby" -- such as gang bangers and criminals who probably shouldn't have been let out of prison to menace society again.

        Hmm...

        So, one person on DK believes the US should become a completely socialist society, and therefore all DKer's do?

        One registered Democrat somewhere is convicted of child rape, and therefore all Democrats are child rapists?

        One person in your town thinks you're delusional, so everyone in the world does? (Actually, that person may have a point come to think of it.)

        Yep - it's the end of argument because you have lost it (both the argument and apparently the ability to reason).
