  •  In a way, it's awe-inspiring.... (7+ / 0-)

    .....what kind of a reach a gun lover will indulge in to justify his/her obsession. People are over-concerned about vaccines and so they are over-concerned about guns? When was the last time vaccinations wiped out a kindergarten class?

    I can think of at least two discontinuities in the disingenuous list given above: first, guns are designed to be dangerous while vaccines are not; and second, vaccination policies in the US are broadly similar to the rest of the developed world, with a broadly similar outcome, while gun control policies in the US are uniquely lax for the developed world, and gun violence is also much higher. Concealing or denying that last correlation seems to be a priority for some here.
