Conversation with a Gun-Rights Advocate

Posted on the 05 October 2011 by Mikeb302000
Over on the Daily Kos, I made some interesting friends. To my surprise, the fanatical gun-rights contingent that considers itself liberal and democratic is as nasty and contentious as their conservative counterparts. Incredibly, I ended up banned, not them.
Here's one of them writing me personal e-mails because he didn't like what I had to say about responsible gun ownership.

What about all the drunk hunters roaming the mountains and plains of Montana? Cat got your tongue? Mike you are a jack ass. And obviously you do not know what you are talking about. I have looked at you web site it seems to be nothing but a narrowly focused rant page. Most of the people with Medical Marijuana cards are average citizens, just like everybody else. You seem to be a hating, raging idiot. So screw you Mike. Forever yours, Jerome

Jerome, You haven't read enough of my blog to know what you're talking about. I've written far more against drinking alcohol and guns than I have about pot and guns. I have my opinions and I think I back them up pretty well and consistently. What the fuck is your problem that you can't accept that?
Mike, you are a fuck head and after reading the comments and replies to your shit on Daily Kos I can see why you are so unpopular. You are a true asshole, have a good day fucker. You are wrong about how the body reacts to meds when the body is stressed by pain. Most people function normally when taking pain meds if they are in pain and stressed. The body adapts to them and most people do not bob and weave around stupidly, as you seem to think. You are a total fucktard really. And you should keep your opinions to yourself.
Jerome is fairly typical. What conclusion can be drawn? Is it the love of guns that makes people this way? I mean, regardless of political alignment, the gun-rights characters are absolutely interchangeable when it comes to the gun argument. Does anyone else find that surprising? I wrote about the Democratic Underground diaries - same thing.
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.
