17. An interesting comment ...
politely worded and worthy of consideration.

You do not fall into the category of posters I was referring to as you own firearms. I'm sorry you took offense.

Firearm owners often disagree on approaches to addressing gun violence.

But still you make a valid point. Guns are, indeed, inanimate objects. However, a large group of posters here totally oppose gun ownership. Some deny this, but they believe in incremental steps to ban firearms totally. These posters are often very insulting to gun owners and insinuate that they suffer from a short penis synonym, "the Irish disease", or are racist illiterate rednecks and basically evil. This was the group I was referring to.

Since I'm posting on the home field of a very progressive website rather than a conservative pro-gun site, I can expect a lot of cat calls and harassment from the fans. Such is life. If it bothered me, I would merely post elsewhere.

I also wish you a Happy New Year. :toast:
