saying 'Except for those' doesn't exactly go over well.
Poll s showed that even the majority of gun owners and NRA members
were in favor of such measures as universal background checks and the
banning of some military style assault weapons.
Nope. You keep saying that, but not true. And then
Then, while most
of us were still reeling with shock, the NRA went into high gear. Wayne
LaPierre was all over the airways sounding like a cross between Elmer
Gantry and an Old Testament prophet warning of Armageddon. His message:
The government was coming to confiscate our guns and deprive us once
and for all of our Second Amendment rights.
You just said people were in favor of banning some guns, but he's a horrible bastard for saying it? Really?
After weeks of this, and despite President Obama’s assurances that the
government did not want our guns and had no intention of messing with
our right to own them,...
Really? You can't have it both ways: you can't call for bans and restrictions and then call people idiots for believing you want to ban some guns and restrict the rest.
And I do have to point out, claiming gun owners are allied with skinheads, etc., doesn't exactly give us any reason to think we've got common ground with you. On anything.
