Saying something is a logical fallacy is NOT belittling to someone unless they take opposition to their position personally, which you have done twice now. If you've posted something like the pic above recently then I believe you're not only acting irresponsibly, but also engaging in intellectual laziness. For that I'll not apologize, and I told my friend who posted that stupid picture the same thing.It doesn't end up there. You may call it absurd. Many people believe it's not. Not because they're idiots, but they believe they see correlations and consistencies with events in history. They have quotes and beliefs from our founding fathers to assist their beliefs. You have a "law" created over the internet. Who is right? I'm not smart enough to know. But I know what I believe. I know what I believe is not "absurd" nor a "fallacy". I also know that I can have a conversation with somebody with a dissenting opinion without throwing words out to make myself seem smarter and to belittle them.
Piers Morgan has been insufferable the last few weeks as he has been on a soapbox for gun control
His debates are basically him yelling at people to answer questions
I am not an Alex Jones fan but he dominated Piers that night. Piers couldn't get a word in
Listen, I have no say in this. I just like entertainment. And that was entertaining.
The soldiers gave three cheers as they urged their tired horses north across the uneven hills. Some of the mounts, exhausted after a week of almost continual marching, began to lag behind; others, spurred on by their enthusiastic riders, began to edge past the regiment's commander. "Boys, hold your horses," Custer cautioned; "there are plenty of them down there for us all."
The way some pro-gun people talk, its like I have a responsibility or a duty to own a gun, not just a right. That its my fault for not having a gun, or wanting one.
Again, no one is saying that you can't have a gun. People are saying, you don't need a gun that can shoot 100 bullets in five seconds. Or armor piercing bullets. Is saying people shouldn't have nuclear weapons "disarming the people?"
The second video was great by the way: "If you punch me right now, its not your fist that did it, its your brain."

What would A World Without Lawyers be like?
This man personifies the sick, twisted love affair some people have with their firearms. It is mystifying to me, fascinating to see, and a bit horrifying really. These people spout revolution and issue a call to arms at the mere mention of broaching a discussion on enhanced gun laws. They are like paranoid, jealous lovers.

Worrying about thuh gub'mint taking away all of your guns is preposterous. That's not the issue -- no thanks to Alex Jones, who if anything serves as a great example of exactly the type of nut you'd want to keep far, far away from firearms and sharp things. Not to mention car keys, household medication, wet floors, and mattress tags.
"The Internet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhea: massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind-boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it" - I wish I had said this.
