  •  Ah the Distraction Gambit (0+ / 0-)

    Who's to say you aren't attempting to distract? Today is an historic day for gun control proponents. You could have advanced your advocacy just as effectively without even mentioning other "special interest groups." Especially here, where I have noticed that many users enjoy a rather remarkable capacity of chewing gum while walking.

    Where you went off the rails was in the outright accusation of hypocrisy, which you continue to defend. There's another tack you might have taken. You might have said, "if children's safety concerns you please consider the plight of children in danger from US military presence." But instead you had to cry "J'Accuse" presumably for the entertainment value. Denigrating and passing value judgements is not the way to win hearts and minds.
