Why did I do such a 180 on guns? [View all]

Last edited Sun Dec 30, 2012, 05:22 PM - Edit history (1)

I used to support gun rights.

I used to think everyone had a right to bear, and in my case, to NOT bear arms.

I have never owned a gun and I never will

Then the killings stated

One after another

It got so bad, reporters couldn't finish up one story about a massacre before they had to start reporting on the next

Then I said enough

I did research

I read studies on both sides

Guess what: the gun lobby is lying to you

Their studies are a joke

Selective sampling, leading questions - just all around bad research

The anti gun studies, many in which the lead researcher started out pro gun, were done correctly

And they always showed what should have been painfully obvious

Guns = murder

Every time

Any other kind of talk is weasel wording

I felt lied to. Deceived. Knowingly given misinformation.

Being lied to is something I don't take very lightly

Chances are you don't either

They are lying to you



12/30: This thread, so far, has shown the desperation of the gun supporters.

Because something is happening here
But you don't know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?
