What did you expect?

If you do something like this:

When Amelia Hamilton started working with NRA Family on updating classic Grimm fairy tales, it was to rework the stories we all knew and loved to show what would happen if the main characters had been taught about gun safety and how to use firearms.

Never did she imagine the biggest criticism she’d face would be from people who hadn’t even read her work.

Of course you should expect the anti-gun bigots to get all upset. It shows gun ownership and usage in a positive light. This is unacceptable in their world view.

And, of course, there is absolutely no need for them to read your work. Knowledge and rational thought is irrelevant to their thought process. We have seen this again and again.

How else do you explain how quickly and frequently they resort to childish insults instead of calm rational thought when discussing gun ownership?

  1. I wonder if these people would get so out of shape if someone were to write stories putting recreational drug use in a good light?
    Probably not, as Clayton Cramer reported that another parent in Sonoma when he lived there many years ago said to him, “at least my child isn’t into guns.” when it was learned the child was smoking marijuana.

  2. That’s a cool idea. No wonder the authoritarians are losing their collective s#!t.

    Next we need a few three minute “horror” movies wherein the teen-aged would-be victims are all packing SMGs.
