Welcome to America.
He didn't call you asinine. He said your statement was asinine. You know how to avoid that? Don't make asinine statements unsupported by fact and then refuse to defend them.

It is apparently your feeling or opinion that the NRA does not act in a responsible manner, yet you refused to offer any facts that led you to your conclusion. When MLeake responded with his opinion and the factual basis he used to form it, you got all offended at one word and vented more feelings.

Maybe you'd find this discussion more productive if you spent less time sharing how you feel and more time examining the factual basis of those feelings?

Lord knows I just typed and deleted a lot of personal feelings of my own.

Very good points indeed.

BTW: Yesterday i read a newspaper article that called the anti-gun, anti-self defense leadership of the CO legislature "moderates".
