    Nitpicking the specific terms I'm using in an attempt to divert from the subject at hand is exactly the kind of denial I'm talking about.

    Whether it's about a gun that sprays bullets with one trigger pull or a gun that requires multiple trigger pulls is really irrelevant to why people feel the need to own them.

    •  Not nitpicking, just pointing out (0+ / 0-)

      what was either a lie on your part or (more likely) gross ignorance. You have a fantasy of Rambo wannabes, but are apparently unaware that most gun owners have zero access to the weapons capable of living out the violence you picture. You also paint them as fetishists.

      It is not nitpicking when you deliberately use inflammatory language and in so doing, show you do not know anything about the people you're denigrating or even what firearms exactly you're talking about.

      And I have had it with fellow liberals who apparently never had a problem with the tactics of Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Fox News, and their supporters: no, all along, turns out that misinformation, lies, insults, declaring anyone who disagrees isn't reasonable or is just being contrarian, and appeals to emotion are all A-OK as long as it's a pet issue on your side of the fence. You and those who think like you are the ones I believe deflect from the conversation.
