On a slightly different tack,
If I was one of the ‘nobody needs an assault weapon’ folk and heard one of my leaders say “Nobody is going to take away your guns” I would say “Why the (bleep) not???”
I would tell them that that is why I joined their group and that’s what I thought the purpose of the group was. I would say unless we take all the guns away from all the people we will not get rid of the 'gun violence'.
I’m starting to have a little sympathy for how hard it is for the anti-gun crowd to keep the fire alive in their group.
(Nah…no sympathy at all whatsoever for them. But with a great big inconsistency like that in their manifesto it MUST make some of them scratch their heads once in a while.)
