It's not about "guns", but "CONTROL". . . When the government tells you that "you don't need your guns", that is when you really need them. "Those who pound their swords into plowshares will (be forced to) plow for those who do not" . . .

The Left routinely ascribes absolute moral authority to grieving victims in furtherance of their political agenda.  Their agitprop is often manipulative and exploitive, but it works.  Appeals to facts and reason aren't enough anymore; persuading the public increasingly requires emotional appeals.  Even if they find it inherently unpalatable, conservatives must promote people whose personal stories offer counter-narratives to liberals' tragic parade of victimhood.  Katie
