    Are they magic essays? because that's what it takes to change the mind of a hoplophobe, control-nut anti-gunner. Information and logic will not do it. They have been at this a long time and when they are proven wrong, they simply ignore it and keep arguing. Sadly, these days, that may be a winning strategy.

    You're right, of course. But we need to engage the middle ground. Give them well thought-out positions to counter the nonsense of the hoplophobes. I think this blogpost does that. ;)

    Awesome entertaining essay by someone who knows guns and cover all the issues well.

    The anti-gun people won't like his tone, but he gives the pro-gun people great talking points for your discussions with your anti-gun friends :)
