An instructor of mine had a favorite question he would ask "Are you ignorant or are you stupid?"
Ignorance is a lack of knowledge, you cannot know what you have not learned. It can be fixed with education.
Stupid is you have been given the information but refuse to use or accept it.
Posts were made about automatic weapons, high powered weapons.... that were inaccurate. People knowledgeable about guns posted corrections; much like if you said a car can run on spaghetti, a car mechanic would say no it can't.
For attempting to educate those who have never learned, we are called gun-nuts, gun-religionists, cowboys, penisally-challenged, no true liberal can favor gun ownership and many more... even gun reactionaries. Several posters proclaimed they are ignorant and don't want to learn any more because they know enough to know, i.e. have moved themselves out of the ignorant category to the other.
Yet despite all of the baseless accusations, name calling, broad brush categorizing, ignorant statements, openly false statements it is always the pro-rights side that is accused of being the ones who cannot have a meaningful conversation.
Now there is celebration that we shall be re-locked into the gungeon. For those with no interest on the issue I fully understand; there are topics I do not go to because they do not interest me. But there are those who celebrate that they can be rid of voices that dare to disagree with them of the subject. There is even a call for an anti-gun echo chamber where people can post all they want saying 'guns are bad m'kay'. I would rather converse with those who may have a different take on a subject than sit around a group of yes wo/men.
You can relax now. Those of us who a liberal and believe in the Bill of Rights as written and affirmed will go back to using the side entrance so as to not offend the 'better people' who know all they need to whether it is right or wrong.
I do challenge you to ask yourself the question, "Are you ignorant or are you stupid?"
If the former and you wish to learn, you know where to find us.
