“We need to get some experts to solve this problem!”

It’s got to be experts who opine in a way we like – like the climate change alarmist climatologists. Social violence is another issue where the plea is for some experts, but only those who can help rationalize irrational opinions.

How can we “gun people” honestly be expected to come to the table with anti-gunners when anti-gunners are willfully stupid about guns, and openly hate, despise and ridicule those of us who own them? There must first be respect and trust — even just a little — before there can be even the beginnings of legitimate discussion of the issue.”

The president is making assertions to young folks that ‘the government is your friend’ and all this talk about tyrany is bogus. That presumes an ignorance about the discussions and insights of those who founded the country.

An anti-gunner reads a book though, or sees a documentary on TV — or perhaps worst of all, gets a degree — and suddenly they have the almighty authority and expertise to tell us how we ought to live our lives, replying to our objections to their onslaught by throwing pictures of dead kids in our faces and commanding us to shut up, because we’re just a bunch of stupid radicals and liberals alone know what’s best for America.”

Barry Snell at the Iowa State Daily discusses Walking the dragon — How Feinstein fiddled while America burned. Compare and contrast how the sides of the gun control argument differ and see why there are so many who think there may be a rather violent rebellion somewhere down the road. Father knows best is one thing but government knows best is entirely another, especially when intellectual integrity goes out the door in trying to support viewpoints.
