Response to Pholus (Reply #49)

53. I don't expect much from the control side of the discussion and I'm seldom disappointed

Nothing in the way of original ideas, accurate analogies or true compromise suggestions, and certainly nothing in the way of real world action or any sort of grass roots activity. It's basically a top down concept financed by a small board of 1%ers that are actually backing slowly away now from the issue financially.

In short nothing that will change the current trend toward more liberal gun laws, especially with the trend in violent crime continuing down.

Gun control support pretty much boils down to a steady stream of indignant and/or snarky typing on a keyboard about how horrible guns and gun owners are and how some day things are going to change and we'll all be better off with more gun control. Oh, and of course how the evil NRA/GOP/ALEC/Koch/Dr. Pepper conspiracy is somehow responsible for every bi-partisan law passed and every criminal act with a gun, even though the NRA has no real political power or leverage ... or so we've been assured repeatedly.

But none of them ever start petitions to change laws, meet with their legislators about the issues and to date, we only have one poster here who actually claims to belong to the Brady organization.

So it gets harder every week to take the gun control side of the discussion seriously.
