Insulting the genitalia of gun owners is ridiculous, childish and accomplishes nothing [View all]

I'm not a gun owner, I don't plan on owning any and I think most (though obviously not all) gun owners are paranoid fools, as proven by the surge in sales after Obama's reelection and ones screaming about how the big bad gubmint wants to take their guns away. But these type of insults are quite counterproductive and go nowhere. They serve no purpose but making the anti-gun side look just as petty and childish and provide evidence to the claims that said people aren't concerned about public safety but simply hate guns and gun owners. They insult more rational gun owners and serve to alienate such people who aren't insane gun nuts and would be open to more restrictions. And they make no sense in regards to the many female gun owners.

Seriously this line of "argument" needs to stop. It's a lot like trashing Ann Coulter for her looks instead of the drivel she says.
