You’re not very bright, are you? You seem intent on shooting off your big mouth to whomever you can, and since you’re saying stupid things like “let’s start a civil war” all you’re doing is helping the anti-gun faction ban our guns.
I know that’s a difficult concept to grasp, but you see, there are these people out there in the country, and most of them aren’t educated on the gun issue at all. That means when Suzy opens her daily paper and sees you say that gun owners are ready to start shooting cops, she thinks that all gun owners are as crazy as you are, when in fact we’re not.
The problem here is that we’re winning the fight to keep and bear arms, so instead of being smart about things and playing it cool, you’re making it sound like we want to start shooting cops and civil servants, which is a pretty dumb thing to say.
I get really tired of crap like this – because all it takes is one Mike Vanderboegh to undo all the good, hard work that people have been doing. Negative impressions “take” with much certainty and are much harder to dislodge from the minds of the public than a positive impression. That means that the aforementioned Suzy could have had dozens of positive experiences with gun owners and be warming to the issue, but then she could read what ol’ Mikey writes and start to think that maybe we’re all bunch of crazy nutbags.
Thanks for nothing, buddy.
