In my true opinion, it's not worth the fight (offline, that is - online verbal scuffles are fine and fun). If they feel so strongly about their guns, let them keep them. As long as they don't go off the deep end and try to subjugate the rest of society to their whims by force, it's fine. Sure, we'll have to put up with more armed criminals, and we'll have to tolerate the occasional blow-up when a person loses it and goes on a killing spree... I don't mean to downplay those events or how tragic they are, but they're not so prominent that guns are an absolutely critical issue.
I know, right? You'd think such people could only exist in fiction. Well thanks a lot, reality, you're stranger than fiction sometimes.
Personally, I feel that if they want their guns so much, they're free to have them; the sooner they qualify themselves for a mass Darwin Award, the better. I can only think that way because I'm ultimately quite removed from the situation though; in your case, your position is a bit more perilous.
In hindsight I had some fun but it was a waste of time, and something that removed some of my faith in humanity's reasoning abilities. To be fair, I'm sure they felt the same way about me. A rather pathetic situation all-around.
Nor are these forums the place for rational discussion anymore either, I'm afraid. Only thing I know is, if another petition to reform the moderation of this place comes up, whoever started it has my signature guaranteed on it.
Oh, the usual; getting into a scrap with a religio-nut, and somebody on the mod team taking the chance to give it to me. I'm pretty sure you saw it though, I could swear you commented on the News Thread while it was going on.
