I tried reading the article, but I can't get through more than half of it before puking. I can't tell whether it's a "news" article, a misplaced editorial, or an essay by a moody and "deep" high schooler.
Here's good paragraph:
"What was the meaning of the anger he felt lately while shopping at Costco, hoping one of the strangers in the aisles might be a gun nut who would recognize and approach him, so he had an excuse to shout back?"
Watch out, gun nuts. Keep your heads low and hide the NRA logos. There are people who are just waiting for you to "make their day."
The comments section is even worst. The saddest thing is that lots come from gun owners Here are the first two on the list:
...Being a gun owner as well, I feel angry at NRA. There is nothing wrong with background checks or limit on how many one can buy in a given time. Just like driver's license, gun ownership is not a right but a privilege. If it was a right then felons are also Americans and should be allowed to own one. Mentally challenged people are also Americans and should be allowed to get them. Just like we regulate driver's license and we revoke them, suspend them or not allow certain people to have them, same should go for guns. "
And after that:
It is all about responsibility. I own an AR also but I bought it for fun and target shooting only. It stays disassembled in 2 pieces at any given time. If an intruder breaks into my house, I can only fire one gun so why would I need dozen. To the gun huggers, please don't use the logic that we might need to overtake our country someday. Our military will kick every one of your rear ends 6 ways from Sunday no matter how many guns you stockpile; your arsenal merits a 3rd world small militia at best. So arming yourself with fully automatic weapons and handguns to fight against your government doesn't justify your God-Given right to bear arms."
I hope these are the last pathetic, attention begging death throes of a movement sinking into obscurity.
