The anti gunners simply can't understand they're acting like wait for it;
Next thing ya know they're gonna be herding us in to cattle cars.
Yeah I love how the left calls Trump Hitler and then they demand he take away guns.

Yeah well I'm certainly not alone. People are pissed about kids getting shot up every other week. Lots of people. Millions of people. They are sick and tired of it and they WANT SOLUTIONS. Not just finger pointing. Solutions.
We can't all be Mr. Spock with no emotion whatsoever.

To answer both posts. Heroin is illegal. Gun bans are proposed from time to time as an appeal to emotion, striking when the iron is hot.
Ultimately it is to legislate morality. That they don’t like guns they try to remove them.
I don’t like mayonnaise, people get sick off it all the time. Main ingredient in most salad dressings.
Democrats depend on useful idiots and uninformed supporters.
Gun bans certainly do have an emotional component, but it would be false to claim they are proposed as an appeal to emotion since gun bans do in fact work to dramatically reduce these events.
Claiming otherwise is a dishonest position that gun-rights fanatics adopt.
Effectiveness is a different question than constitutional rights though and the debate around the 2nd amendment. Otherwise, just because something can reduce the murder rate does not mean it should be law.
And the right wing lives and breaths "appeal to emotion". They employ it to avoid rational discussion. This thread is full of hyperbole in place of logic and facts.
