It's always astonishing when those who want "common sense" gun control begin their argument with demonstrably false "facts" and "information," lob in a good sized helping of personal attacks (like how gun owners are compensating for something, only morons could possibly like firearms, gun owners hate kids, etc.), and then always react so incredulously to that majority of gun owners who aren't against background checks and don't think everybody needs a bazooka and a howitzer in their back yard.
"They" just can't seem to understand, for whatever reason, that the majority of gun owners aren't really interested in sitting through made-up "facts" and personally belittling comments to try and get anywhere with "common sense" gun control.

Well just to throw it out there. I was asked to leave a ban guns conversation on FB yesterday. That’s right, the same mindset that wishes to remove a right, by violating other rights (removal of property sans jury and due process) has zero problem suppressing free speech.
Doesn’t sound like guns are the problem. Which is what my point was in that the solution is to focus on what causes the shooter to kill rather than the method.
“Shiria law is comming to America”
“War in christmas”
“Immigrants are comming to get you”
Literally the dictionary definition of conservatism is “They are trying to change your traditions!”

By that same token it's equally annoying whenever someone says, "I want more gun control" and then pro-gun supporters warp that to "They want to come for my guns and ban all guns!"
I happen to want more gun control but also like the 2nd Amendment. Yet people just assume I want to ban all guns anyways.

Seems OK to me. Its like I've always said, I fully support the first Amendment. I just think there should be reasonable regulation of free speech and press, with the reasonable part defined by people who agree with me.
