What the hell is there to discuss? The pros vs. cons of 5 year olds shooting 2 year olds? Why this is a necessary evil? How this is caused by not enforcing the laws we already have or some other stupidity?
Two or three years ago I was completely non opinionated on all this because I truly saw all the positives and negatives, but the behavior of the gun nut crowd has turned me farther and farther away from their views, because they are not based on reality or the benefit of our nation. They are based on maintaining their hobby using any means to do so. It's become pretty disgusting to see.
this is kind of where i stand. i've been pretty ambivalent on this issue for quite some time, but the scope of the gun crowd's standpoint has shifted to a hysteria that equates to an insistence that the 2nd amendment means that any given citizen should have the capacity to stave off the u.s. military.
interestingly these same people tend to worship the military, so i guess they just don't realize that the people they claim to be defending against are the people who they sell raffle tickets for and memorialize with sentimental facebook graphics and yellow ribbon magnets
