It is frustrating when you realize we are debating issues related to firearms with some folks that have no knowledge of the subject. I heard a commentator today state that while he supports the Second Amendment, “no one needs a semi-auto for hunting or self defense”. What?
Obviously he has most likely confused full-auto with semi-auto which has resulted in him pushing to ban the wrong product. I know many of the anti-gun groups are knowledgeable, but they are using the general public’s lack of knowledge against us.
That is why it is important for us to educate people without sounding too condescending.
A major source of objection to a free economy is precisely that it ... gives people what they want instead of what a particular group thinks they ought to want. Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself.
