This article is titled “New anti-gun strategy: Demonize CCW holders.” This sums up the anti-gunner’s strategy perfectly. Since they can’t fight with facts they fight with emotions and bigotry. Accusations such as more guns means more crime and armed citizens killed 44 people in a span of two years are made left and right. This except for the article really hit home though:
Nowadays, about the only form of acceptable overt social bigotry is against gun owners. The gun bigots argue that when one person with a gun does something heinous, all gun owners are expected to bear responsibility, and surrender their rights as though it would undo the crime.
This is quite true. If you say something that could be even remotely construed as bigotry you will have almost everybody throwing you against the wall. Just look at how Obama’s critics fight, they try to tag his opposition as racists. They do this because they know once a group are labeled racists nobody will listen to them. During the democratic presidential nominee race if you spoke against Hillary Clinton her supporters would accuse you of being sexist. Being a bigot against people of different religions, sexual orientations, races, creeds, ideals, and anything else is unacceptable. But bigotry against gun owners is perfectly acceptable.
If that’s not hypocrisy I don’t know what it.
