No one in power is scared of the gun control movement.

What the gun control movement can learn from gay rights
[Good! That is the way it should be.
If you were to read the article you would find Zeff got it just backward. So I left the following comment for him:
The similarities between gun rights and gay rights are much greater than those between gun control and gay rights.
Gun owners just want to be left alone. 80 to 100 million gun owners and millions of gays are good neighbors, parents, co-workers, friends, and didn’t commit any crimes last year. The extremely small fraction that did commit crimes should be punished. Collective punishment and discrimination against people who have harmed no one is wrong and a very strong motivator. This injustice is the reason the NRA can motivate gun owners to vote against politicians. Politicians don’t fear the NRA. They fear gun owners who vote.
That there even exist gun control organizations is a stain in our political environment. Just as gay, black, Jew, and women control organizations would be and have been.
It appears comments are moderated so it may never show up (Reasoned Discourse) but at least I have it here.—Joe]
