    it means that people who fear the Government, the home invaders, the spooks and their own shadow, should be disqualified from the discussion as well.
    Paranoia is a mental illness and it is on display from one end to the other of the Gun Owners community. Granted, it's drummed up and aggravated by professionals: NRA, et cetera, but the underlying drive behind almost every pro-gun proliferation argument is fear, blind, unreasoning terror.

    If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      Not everyone lives in a gated residential with armed security guards.  I have a good friend who was able to defend herself and her young son against a home invasion with a pistol; whether she would have been raped and/or murdered is a question we will thankfully never know the answer to as the perpetrator fled with no shots fired.

      That being said, perhaps you should re-read my post, this time for comprehension: I never said people with emotions should not have a voice, what I said was that we should not allow emotion to trump logic.

      Upon reflection, perhaps I am mistaken and you really understood the common meaning of average, everyday words on the English language; perhaps you ARE, in fact, arguing against using logic and our rational faculties to decide public policy.  If so, I apologize for overestimating your desire to have a rational and productive civil discourse on the right to keep and bear arms.
