Wrothgar, that editorial is the kind of thing that just drives me nuts. That attitude is what makes it nearly impossible for me to even engage with the anti-gun folks. Just utter condescension and automatic assumption of their overwhelming mental and moral superiority. Make me just want to scream "You're wrong, you're lying, and you know it. Either that or you really are that dumb. And you want to call me the idiot."
I feel like they are standing there shouting how stupid I am for refusing to admit that the sky is clearly green, as everyone who isn't a moron knows.
