Quote of the day–Matthew@Triggerfinger

The difference between gun control activists and gun rights activists is simple: gun rights advocates know what they are talking about, because they have depth of knowledge and expertise about firearms and pay attention to the issue. Gun control advocates, for the most part, don’t know anything about guns, aren’t interested in guns, and only pay attention to gun issues when the latest blood-dancing press release arrives. There’s no sustainability.

[It’s more than just sustainability. It’s depth of knowledge, training, and preparation for the conflict.

I thought this for a QOTD was particularly relevant because in a meat space discussion yesterday Sean told me that he sometimes gets into discussions with an anti-gun person who thinks they know what they are talking about. It turns out they have only given the topic a few minutes of thought whereas Sean has spent 20 years thinking about the subject. As expected a battle of wits with an unarmed person is very one sided.–Joe]

  1. With most of the gun control people I’ve met, their major talking points are that guns are evil, they kill people, they turn good people into killers just by owning them, and they only work safely when used by soldiers or police. Anything else they do not want to hear.

  2. Hell, just get them started down the road of “assault weapons” – within about three exchanges, one should be able to determine if an anti-rights advocate understand what he or she is talking about or not.

    Of course, once you realize they are ignorant, and once they know you know, any remote chance of a reasonable conversation just went right out the window – people hate it when you tell them that their emtional fears are based on nothing more than ignorance and… well… emotion.
