Yes, this is really something my own mother posted on Facebook. I’ve tried to use logic and reason to get her to understand my point of view when it comes to firearms and the right to defend yourself against evil, but we’re talking about a woman who treats the Huffington Post like gospel. She’s one of the many Democrats who are low information voters when it comes to gun rights, only reading the party-approved bullet points without actually seeking to understand exactly how crappy the proposed gun control legislation actually is. She sees “universal background checks” and thinks it’s a good idea, without any thought as to the repercussions of the details of the specific legislation — she just wants it passed because “it’s the right thing to do.” I tried to make that point, but it’s apparently fallen on deaf ears. So I ask you: how would you counter this argument?
