We the Internet Video: 7 Things to Know Before Discussing Guns
Boss Crowder says of guns, the debate is usually between gun owners and the uninformed. Unfortunately, the latter group is most of the media, most of Hollywood, the entire Democrat Party, and every obnoxious troll on Facebook. No lie is too ridiculous for the left. No comment too embarrassing (see The Alleged Florida Shooter was NRA? No, Not Really. and Chelsea Handler Pretends She Cares About Kids to Push Gun Control. Looks Like an Idiot). It's like having a conversation about healthy living with a plastic sack of lard. Recently liposuctioned from an overindulgent fat pride feminist.
Dear self-important trolls: get at least the smallest clue of what you're talking about before opening your herpes-infested claptraps. This video should help you get started.
Look back at your old Facebook posts, tweets, Insagrams, whatever. How many times did you call Donald Trump "Hitler?" Seriously guys. If you want to have a meaningful conversation on gun control, but especially if you're in favor of it, you can't call Trump "Hitler" anymore. Because calling for gun control, while Hitler is in the White House, makes you sound suicidal.
It's only going to get worse. CNN is having a town hall for students and parents of the Parkland shooting. On its surface, the town hall sounds like a discussion in which we should all partake. Then you watch the news and see a) students already making comments that are ignorant at best and complete bulls*** at worst, and b) the media already decided you aren't allowed to criticize them.
I dream of a world where people who sound off against guns have IQs higher than 4. Maybe if you're going to call for stupid things like "limited round magazines" (which you may or may not call "clips") we should run a universal background check on your ability to process thoughts. Dollars to donuts the prognosis won't be favorable.
