    nor are they members of a "hate group." Those labels has been used against progressives for decades.

      •  Semi-automatics are not WMDS (1+ / 0-)

        WTF is wrong with people laying claim to completely spurious descriptions so they can make a stronger emotional impact? A nuclear weapon is a WMD, a tank or artillery shell or a semi-automatic or automatic weapon is not.

        These arguments are stupid and wrong-headed and they're not going to get us closer to our goal of tighter regulation. Like the gun lobby's own arguments they're full of logical fallacies.

        •  How many kids did that gun kill? (0+ / 0-)

          1 gun 28 people...28 lives snuffed out in a mater of moments.

          Yes semantics....

          How about 5 round max bolt action or shotgun...6 shots in a revolver..Ban the rest...

          If you need more than that get help.

    •  It's not just because I disagree with them. (0+ / 0-)

      It's because they want a registry of the mentally ill. How would you feel if they had asked for a registry of black people?

      People don't choose mental illness.

      •  That's not terrorism (0+ / 0-)

        It's not right either or a solution to the problem but it's certainly not terrorism.
