Response to gejohnston (Reply #45)

Wed Sep 5, 2012, 07:35 PM

47. I disagree.

Hoyt and bongbong do not make off-topic posts, and as far as I can tell, they are not trying to provoke an emotional response, but rather trying to express their feelings. When dealing with morons who think that gun control caused the holocaust, wit and humor are very appropriate.

I disagreed with his banning and said so.

Yes, Hoyt's banning was so egregious that even some pro-gunners disagreed with it. It was a completely one-sided abuse of power.

As for the rest, look, trying to deny the racism in the gun culture is like trying to deny the racism in the GOP. That doesn't mean that all Republicans or gun nuts are racist, but the racism is there. I disagree with you that gun control advocates are classist: in fact, the biggest victims of gun violence are the urban poor, often minorities, and those tend to be the strongest gun control advocates as well. I'm reminded of the Daily Show feature about the "guns for tots" giveaway, where some Libertarian nutcase decided to give away free toy guns in Harlem, because gun violence is all a joke to him in his comfortable suburban home.

Still, even though I disagree with you that gun control advocates are classist and bigoted against rural people, if krispos decided to ban you from the gungeon for that, I would be on your side.
