Much like evolution, climate change, gay marriage, don't ask, don't tell, and women's reproductive rights - gun control is an issue that only has two sides - the right one, and the shitheads.
If you think the dirty government is trying to take your guns, let me tell you something- YOU ARE RIGHT! Run! Hide! In fact, you should probably take a cyanide pill and shuffle off to the next world you claim to be so excited to get to, but never seem in that big a hurry to approach when the chips are down. They won't take your guns up there, I promise! We need less of you clouding the issue so if you can't do that, at least sit down, shut up and let the grown ups talk for a bit.
The pro-gun lobby is now, as of December 14th, 2012, the "pro dead kids" lobby and to say differently is so shockingly dishonest you can probably smell it wafting out of your cable modem. And if that doesn't sicken you to your very core, there is no hope for you.
And let me say something to the one group that is actually worse - the "moderates”. Yes you, Mr. "Now's not the time to talk about gun control, please let the families grieve". Let me tell you something. You don't know these families. They aren't your Facebook friends and they don't follow you on Twitter and even if they did, I promise you that they are too busy counting the weddings they won't attend, the graduations that will never come (KINDER-fucking-GARDEN graduations you waste of oxygen), the first dates they will never see and the grand kids they will never cradle to give two shits about your holier than thou bullshit right now.
The time for real talk about getting these machines whose only purpose is to hurt and kill off the streets is immediately if not sooner. PERIOD. If you don't think so, then by all means, don't participate in the conversation. I'm not sure you have much to contribute anyway that we haven't heard a million times already.
If you think gun control is wrong, or worse, you think it's even possible for there to BE a wrong time to even TALK about it (hint, it's probably not the week there were not one but two mass shootings) then I have one thing to say to you...
You are wrong, and you should hate yourself.
