The 7 Varieties of Gun Control Advocates


I ran into this over on the OHIOCCW.ORG forums and it was so profound, that I decided to share it.

I stopped reading at the word "coward." Stereotypes and insults are best left to our opponents. We don't need to lapse into that.

Many supporters of gun control are simply people who don't know any better. Some folks, especially those from an urban environment, have been told a pack of lies all their life about guns. That doesn't make them cowards, authoritarians, or elitists. They simply haven't been given all the facts.

Heck, I could do a nasty screed on the varieties of gun rights advocates who bug me just as much.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.

Thanks for sharing.

Now, please take a good look at the forum rules for "drive by" posts, and the new rules on linking, copying and reproducing other materials. The rules are there for good and valid reasons.

All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
