Nothing is more insulting then being talked down too by someone who is ignorant about guns and dishonest about what they want to do with them.

Comment to Dear Gun Control Democrats: 6 Ways to Make a Better Argument
[I’m not sure “insulting” is the word I would use. “Infuriating” is probably how I would describe it. A lawmaker who describes barrel shrouds as “the shoulder thing that goes up” or thinks that a magazine is consumed once the ammo in it has been fired has no business writing gun laws.
I take that back. They have no business writing laws of any type.
Would people tolerate a lawmaker who cannot distinguish a jacket cover from an index writing laws that ban books that use a “high-capacity font”?
Would people tolerate a lawmaker who cannot distinguish a reel from a lure writing laws banning “high-capacity fishing line”?
That is the equivalent of what we have had for decades in the case of our gun laws and it shows.—Joe]
