Oh, and the gun banners are all rational, reasonable people willing to work side-by-side with gun owners for good solutions? Yeah, right.

See what I mean? It's meaningless irrational emotional bullshit like that that costs gun-banners any hope of credibility. They keep pointing to the problem with tearful rhetoric about dead kids without even the faintest clue that anything they do will actually work, and then they villify as evil anyone with the temerity to even suggest that they might be wrong. The press makes things worse by highlighting the rare and spectacular incidents like this while completely ignoring the thousands of occasions where guns quietly served their purpose.

Please keep it up though. The more and more banners rant, the more rational people can see that the NRA is the one arguing with integrity and reason, and that it is HCI and ilk who are the "extremists".
