    except as a fundraising machine echochamber. But hey echochambers are fun and you dont have to actually engage in debate or risk having your ideas disputed.

      "disputed"? That one needs a gigantic gun with huge magazines to live in a first-world country?

        This was once a place of honest debate. Now it's nothign but a fundraising machine and a screaming chamber for extremists.

        How about the entire concept of the AWB.
        How about gun control laws being historically and currently openly racist.
        How about people wanting to ban guns based entirely on appearance.
        How about the deluge of outright lies by gun control organisations.. many of which are still mouthed by gun controllers.. to the point that HCI was in such disrepute it had to rename itself.
        How about selective enforcement - pelosi committed a felony under the law she helped pushed through.. and was given a walk... for a crime she wants to put others in prison for.

        and on.. and on....

        •  Oh (4+ / 0-)

          you are on the losing side of this issue, both morally, in the court of public opinion, and in the court of Daily Kos opinion. So you are mad.

          Ergo, Daily Kos is irrelevant.

          •  Um.. what a childish post (0+ / 0-)

            Dailykos IS irrelevant. You turned it from the heart of the progressivism into nothing but an echo chamber for extremists and (moreso) a fundraising tool. This used to be the most dynamic, interesting, powerful community in the united states. Now..

            As for the court of public opinion gun control extemists have used a statistically insiginifcant tragedy to instill irrational fear over an issue. Shocker there.. im sure noone else has ever done that..  The reality is the general public is clueless on the facts directly due to flat out lies by gun controllers. And you know thta.

            As for DK opinion people here are afraid to speak their opinions since you turned HR'ing from a tool to keep out trolls into a tool to silence dissent. And you very conciously made  that choice.

            You want to control violence you eliminate it's causes. Poverty, addiction, mental illness. You want to stop people from murdering people with guns you put identifiers in the bullets and shells.... but that would be to logical and rational for you folks.
