    they will compare the "bigotry" that gun owners suffer as being the same or similar to the bigotry LGBT folks suffer.  It's mystifying.

      As a transgendered woman, I am part of that LGBT group.

      Which makes me just as qualified as anyone else to speak on these issues.

      The facts are that I do not agree with your "solutions" under our Constitutional Republic.

        My problem is saying gun owners are an oppressed minority just the same or close to the way LGBT folks are oppressed.  I just don't see how they are remotely similar.

        •  I'm not the one that made that comparison. (0+ / 0-)

          You and Coquiero did.

          A strawman to attack perhaps?

            I wasn't attacking anyone.  I was expressing my frustration with this particular argument that Coquiero brought up because I have seen it numerous times on DKos.  I can go dredge up links if you think I'm full of shit but I have a migraine and I'm not in the mood.

            Just call me an asshole and HR me already if that will make you feel better, Christ.

              calling me "dude" is beyond the pale, whether or not you have a headache.
