Via our friends at CSGV:
Here is the picture:
Here is what I don’t get: I did a quick check on several of the cases with the links that Parents Against Gun Violence provided and the real reason are silly enough or lamentable accidents. Why go the extra yard and screw up what would have been a perfect pitch by getting “creative”? The father did not shoot the son just because he was wearing his pants low and talked back, they were both stupidly under the influence of alcohol. The one guy did not shoot the family because they played music loud a couple of times, they had an ongoing feud of several months. Boyfriend did not just in the spur of the moment ran over and shot the girlfriend, there was a history of domestic abuse. And the other noise complain shooting, it was not just that somebody complained but a fought had already broken out and somebody used a gun.
They are cases that are stupid on their own merits, but the need to paint all gun owners with the coating of mindless robots ready to shoot for no apparent reason (stupid or otherwise) was too tempting to pass up. By dehumanizing your target, you make it easy to hate… and dispose.
And we all know what the Laddites at CSGV want for gun owners. They have not been shy about it. And that is why we fight for our Gun Rights.
