“And please don’t respond. I detest when men who don’t read Design Mom come here and lecture this community of incredibly smart, well-educated women.”
You want to advocate that tens of millions of Americans be made in to felons to be hunted by police, but you object to any of those people you would make into felons merely typing a reply to your advocacy of their demise?
That doesn’t sound smart, and it doesn’t sound well-educated.
How did the United States take land from the Native Americans? Part of it was by taking their guns first.
How did the Germans push the Jews in to the ghettos? Partly by taking their guns first.
How did the Turks exterminate so many Armenians? They took the Armenians’ guns first.
How did Mao kill tens of millions? Pol Pot? Stalin?
The history of gun confiscation is the history of marginalized groups being exterminated by the majority.
Just because you yourself have no such desire has no effect on what the people you give this power to will do.
To see just what a bad idea taking all the guns away is, let’s change out the groups you want to make defenseless, and see how it sounds:
No African Americans should be allowed to own guns.
No women should be allowed to own guns.
No single moms should be allowed to own guns.
No Jews should be allowed to own guns.
No LGBTQ+ people should be allowed to own guns.
Pretty ugly, right?
I hope you aren’t advocating that a gay person isn’t allowed to defend themselves from gay bashing.

Noticed the condescension and the attempt at “reasoned discourse”. Typical.—Joe]
