  •  Mental fiction! That's a new one of the gun Cult, (8+ / 0-)

    I look forward to more whining from them about how Daily KOS is no longer "reality based" (Imagine that, Daily KOS actually allowing reports on the carnage!) and perhaps this is part of the comedic relief they are giving us.

    Until people understand the magnitude of the carnage they will not think that it is necessary to take action and demand that Congress listens to us and not the NRA and the gun Cult that the NRA created.  Little by little diaries like GunFail bhave shown Kossacks how bad things are.  Not that long ago (why does mid December 2012 stick in my mind?) the vast majority of Kossacks avoided the G topic like the plague, not because they disagree with us, but because a certain crowd ruled and any diary that even remotely referred to gun violence was descended upon by those that refused to allow any talk about the violence.  In the 4-5 months since Sandy Hook one thing is clear: the crowd is still not happy that their idols are referred to in anything other than reverence, but Kossacks are not afraid of them and they tell them about the million ways that they are wrong and that regulations in no way "infringe" upon their rights.  The best part has been that, partly thanks to their Limbaugh-like positions defending easy access to guns, a great group of diaries mocking them and their NRA talking points.  It is a bit difficult to invoke humor when it comes to something so serious, but it is necessary as it does two things:
    1) it exposes the ludicrous arguments that they repeat, and
    2) it gives us a little comic relief to help us keep fighting to reduce gun violence.

    Thank you David Waldman.  We will get this done; it will take time, but the tenacity of people like you is moving us in the right direction.

    In the meantime, we will have to deal with mental fiction!

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
