    diary, but your choice of 'edgy' words is seriously detracting from you message, as shown by the protest voiced.

    I've rec'd to offset HR, for the moment, because I feel strongly about engaging, teaching and learning but I may remove if your reaction only furthers conflict.

      You just entered experiment number three. A few people here commenting "got it." Liberals will attack an inappropriate word and wag their morally indignant finger for use of the urban pejorative terms for being "owned" and being "weaklings" but write this straight about gun control and give it an equally straight title, and you'd pass right over it without a thought or a read.  If only you felt as strongly about ending gun violence as you do about political correctness, we might effect some change in this debate.

      (Oh, and they were far kinder words than got lobbed at me for three straight days from our pals the gun zealots.)

      Read the article. You might find the rest of it quite interesting.

        You're trolling for some reaction.  Why should it surprise anybody?  You call yourself "The Clever Twit" in your profile.  Good job.  Pat yourself on the back.  That's how you roll!

        view on guns and gun control.

        You are making an assumption on what I think and failing. I had to go back and reread the start to see why so many were getting their panties in a wad. It's language used all over, but in this community, it's clearly being expressed as not appropriate. I see their point and made an effort to point out to you what is being found so upsetting. In the hopes of creating a more constructive discussion on a contentious but important topic.

        Obviously not why you are here & I'll un-rec accordingly.

          It's why I'm here. I left it up for a couple of hours. I got your point, and thank you, it was amended accordingly.
