I respect that you may honestly believe this. But it is hurtful to read from someone I generally respect. I'm on the other side of this issue and I don't resemble this characterization at all.

Do you think your argument might improve if you left out the belittling and hateful name-calling?



I apologize if I offended you. My comment is directed at people I consider gun nuts, and hopefully you are not one. Do you feel you need a gun to protect you from government tyranny? Do you feel that the proliferation of guns and loose gun laws are making us safer?

I own a gun and I respect the rights of others to own and use guns in a legal and rational manner. I do not feel the need to build a bunker and arm myself to fight off the Black-Hawk helicopters.

I stand by my statement though when it comes to so many of the people that I talk to regarding firearms and reforms. The folks who think the government is out to get them, the folks that think that any gun reform means Obama is coming for all their guns, the folks that think the answer to spree shootings is to arm everybody; these people are nuts.
