Anyone who can't withstand a rational debate on the subject of gun control -- particularly in light of last week's Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Connecticut -- should be automatically prohibited from ever owning a firearm. In fact, this should be the number-one requirement of gun ownership: Can someone applying for ownership of a deadly weapon withstand an hour-long debate against someone in favor of gun control without resorting to physical or verbal assault?
Is it too much to ask that every person wanting to possess a firearm be subject to a battery of tests -- everything from intelligence and emotional quotient exams to a psychological evaluation and background check? When America's Founding Fathers drew up the Second Amendment, they didn't do so with the mentally stunted, emotionally disturbed and deeply insecure in mind.
There's a characterization of gun owners for you, "mentally stunted, emotionally disturbed and deeply insecure", wow. That sounds familiar though, doesn't it? Where have I heard that before?
Then I found this cartoon. It seems familiar, again. I'm sure I've seen something like that.
Ah! Here it is!
That worked out so well last time too.
