Bob Costas says that his anti-gun commentary in the middle of a game was a mistake, but then he goes on to say his view is that he’s okay with firearm ownership except for semi-automatic weapons. What do you think the chances are he actually knows what a semi-automatic weapons is or that most handguns these days are semi-auto?
It’s no wonder some people are so scared of guns when they’re absolutely so ignorant about them and spewing nonsense about “cop-killer hollow points” or whatnot. By far, most people are pro-gun and for individual gun ownership — and that’s something that’s only increased over the past fifty years. So the few left thinking that banning handguns is still an option or thinking the same tired gun-control talking points are something no one has heard before are necessarily extremely disconnected from normal people and quite ignorant. That will only increase. In the future, there will be even less pro-gun control people and they’ll be even dumber than they are now; they’ll probably believe guns just jump out of closets and shoot people by themselves or secrete some sort of chemical that makes anyone who touch them become murderous. It’s not an easy thing going into the ash heap of history; think of the people left who are blatant racists.
Liberty: People really like it, and you might want to try and understand why instead of ignorantly ranting against it.
