6. I'll say it again.

If you want to break the back of the NRA, you'll need to reach out to the individual members. This is a good start. But if you go for a full frontal approach, they'll just round up the wagons.

8. Now's a great time to raise funds

Because these are all Obama-administration-shootings, carefully calculated to turn the public against guns, and get laws passed to take away our precious firearms. At least in Wayne LaPierre's mind, at least.

gun bores and bullets and stuff. If you did it would change your opinion about mass murder.

15. The point is not that one's opinions of mass murders should change, the point is that

when someone advocates policies and restrictions relating to certain features of firearms, it's reasonable to expect them to know what those features are, and what effects the policies will actually have.

Do you really think that's so strange? Is there any other arena where you'd respect the opinion of an ill-informed advocate? Say for example someone who had strongly-held opinions on allowable structural components for commercial aircraft, yet didn't really know anything about what those components did, or how they varied, or what was possible?

21. False analogy.

You're comparing guns to commercial aircraft.

Guns are designed for one thing: to kill.
Planes move people.

22. The analogy is fine; the 'thing' in question doesn't matter

The point is that it's reasonable and desirable in any arena (including but not limited to firearms) to expect those who advocate regulations, policies, or restrictions on items, components, features, activities, etc to have a basic understanding of the thing they wish to regulate.

(And as an aside, it's a fallacy to state that guns are designed 'only to kill' - there are myriad applications of firearms that have nothing to do with killing...)

14. They called me two days before that insane shooting happened...

I would have given them a good cursing, but it was a robo call from some damned French dude! I thought the GOP was pissed off at the French for not kissing Bush's ass during the criminal invasion of Iraq?

20. They've hated the French since the Revolutionary War because they fought for the

rebels...

How dare they attack the crown...
