48. I thought this was the purpose of DU forums...
"When ever you post anything about gun control on the Du a whole host of pro gun people show up and try and manipulate you into either shutting up or changing your views."

My goodness, that's what the site(s) are about! It's not a mutual admiration society (though that may occur), nor is it preaching to the choir. I wouldn't be here if there were not a chance DUers would be convinced of pro-2A positions. But there certainly is that chance, and I believe that many DUers have "come over."

You can have a discussion with "them." Of course, when someone makes a reference to folks here being "freepers," or "NRA-types," or lacking "penis length" or some such, that does not make for good argument.

I don't know what you mean by "NRA disruptors." First, there is little disruption done by pro-RKBA folks, though I have seen ample evidence of some hateful-types who attack pro-2A folks at every turn. Review their arguments; review yours, and see where the onus most heavily falls.

FYI, there has been thoughtful and respectful debate over extension of the NICS test to all citizens, and not require it only of FFLs. But even here, one gun-controller condemned the discussion as meaningless since it did not call for bans on guns and ammunition.

As for knowledge of the subject, it is always wise to know as much as possible about the substance/object/behavior one wishes to control by law.
