    My guess is that a lot of the gun control supporters in these national polls are coastal urban elites who have never owned or shot a gun, and look down with secret disdain on the lunch pale Dems in "flyover" states.  This poll doesn't reflect the shear number of red districts that oppose gun control.
    No, I look down on people who put their right to firearms above the right to life of others.

    I think such people have serious moral defects and an inability to reason.

    Doesn't matter where they live, how they live or what they are smoking, that's what I think about them.

    Just my opinion and a reflection of my own values, of course.

    And obviously,  I could be totally wrong; maybe guns are more important than children and other living things.

      Isn't Harry Reid a gun enthtusiast?

      •  I don't know (0+ / 0-)

        But regardless, isn't he for strengthening regulations? If I'm wrong, please correct me.

        I'm talking about the people who put the "right" to posses firearms on equal footing with the right to life.

        Who justify the murders of kids like Noah as acceptable collateral damage to living in a "free society", or claim it's the people who are dangerous, not the guns.

        Such beliefs are morally deficient, delusional and completely fucked-up.

        Those people need help, and society needs protection against them because they value guns more than humans.

        There is a reasonable argument to lock such people up because they love the weapons more than the kids.
