Not everyone on the left is attacking gun ownership (or the constitution, wtf that is supposed to mean) but a lot of people do get caught up in
propaganda on both sides of this issue.
From a leftist point of view, many of us are gun owners and have family and friends that are gun owners but where we differ from the right is in how
we think of guns. Me personally, I think of a gun as a tool — it has uses for defense, hunting, sport shooting, etc.
When I see some yahoo deliberately trying to start a ruckus with open carry in places they know people aren't accustomed to seeing guns, let alone
long guns, I roll my eyes. It just seems like a lot of people are lacking something that they feel they can make up for with a firearm. Owning a gun
doesn't turn a jackass into a badass. It certainly doesn't turn the average idiot who doesn't want to pay taxes into a bona fide revolutionary
I'm not anti-gun, I'm anti-wingnut.
