Response to Fumesucker (Reply #22)

40. I agree that more knowledge is better.

But, at a big picture level, you don't need to know the difference between a "clip" and a "magazine" in order to realize that we have a gun violence problem and need tighter gun control laws. In the same way that you don't need to know what over-the-counter derivatives are in order to understand that we need tighter regulations on Wall Street banks.
