Obviously, one of the hot topics in current events today is gun control. You have one side which is looking for more gun control. The other side seems to think there is no room for improving gun control.
The most vocal side seems to be the pro-gun crowd. I can’t look anywhere without someone having posted that their guns are their right based on the 2nd amendment in the Constitution.
I certainly understand and support their right to voice their opinion. But many of the opinions I see voiced I don’t see how they feel can be helping their argument. If they were posting reasonable arguments based on facts, then I could see that.
But that’s not what I am seeing. I am seeing posts on Facebook about how they are going to have to pry their guns out of their hands if they can. I am seeing posts where one person said they would blow a hole in anyone’s head who came and tried to take the guns. Posts that make it very clear that many of these people are willing to break the law to keep their guns.
How exactly is this helping their cause? It’s only serving to make a point for those who want more gun control laws that the people on the other side can not be trusted to think reasonably about the situation. If they can’t think reasonably, is it reasonable to think there is no need for additional gun control laws?
It reminds me of a bunch of children who respond to someone who asks them to do something with the comeback of “Who’s going to make me?” Kinda childish, don’t you think? Sure seems like a way to sway people over to your point of view to me!
