    that the "No True Scotsman" fallacy is used quite a bit by gun nuts.

    Person A:  No "Good Guy" would commit a mass shooting.
    Person B:  Well, that guy who last week you thought was a "Good Guy" shot ten people.
    Person A:  Well, then, he wasn't a TRUE "Good Guy"

    All gun owners are Good Guys until they use their gun to kill a bunch of people and then they are post hoc defined as Bad Guys.  You can't beat the logic.
