This is PTS and ideology does have a place, but unfortunately, ideology tends to blind and inflame, while the facts tend to enlighten and assuage, so
I like to reign in the ideology a little.
Also, many of us here are leery of certain sources, even when those sources report factual material, so it is better to use other sources, just to
keep the credibility up.
The NRA publishes a lot of good data regarding crime statistics and Second Amendment issues, but I find it is better to seek out the original sources
than to cite the NRA, who is credible by my observation, but has a very different perception among some.
Objectivity should be our goal in all matters.
