The above comment hails from the Campaign to Stop Gun Violence’s Facebook page. Obviously, the average gun control advocate isn’t this blood-thirsty. Right? Clearly, the majority of people in favor of civilian disarmament don’t truck with this “extreme” view, that gun rights advocates’ children, grandchildren and significant other should die in a hail of lead. Right? I mean, it’s not like most of them believe that the NRA is a terrorist organization and that someone should cave-in the skulls of open carriers? Oh wait . . .
Note: there are plenty of pro-gun commentators who go so far over the line they have no idea what the word “line” means. TTAG’s been the landing place for pages and pages of obscene, offensive, threatening and generally abusive comments by gun rights advocates – a term whose gentility belies their belligerence by a factor of 10. We delete these comments as fast and as best we can.
Why wouldn’t we? The antis have used our commentators’ pro-gun aggression in their anti-gun agitprop posting. All of which leaves me wondering: do we want a “look at this ugly comment” war? Should we make finds like the ones above a regular feature? Gun Control Bully Comment of the Day? Or should we ignore the loons and concentrate on the goons?
