I got to thinking about one thing that is absent in the mental behavior of the antis.
You, I, and most people we know, people I’ll be pejorative and call us “Normal People”, when discussing things always ask about results.
I heard two people in the office talking about a diet plan one of them was trying. “How is it going?” Person A, askes, Person B responds “Great! I’ve lost 3 pounds already and I’m enjoying the food options!”
A co-worker heard I was lifting weights to get into better shape (haven’t lost a pound, but I’m down 2″ on my waistline, I’ll call that a “success”) and was telling me that their health club has Kettlebells, and what a great workout they provide.
You’ll also hear warnings from people: “Don’t see that movie, it sucks!” or “Man the service at that restaurant is terrible!”, or “Man I’m on the 3rd transmission on that truck, and it only has 100,000 miles!”
The end result of things are VERY important. Heck in the Grab-and-Go post there was a whole side track of people discussing the Ruger LCR (BTW I love little discussions like this, as its a good way to spread knowledge).
Now look at the Antis. They get excited about success (thankfully something that hasn’t happened in a good while for them), and upset at failure, or success of people they don’t like.
But never once do they concern themselves with results. The Assault Weapons ban was designed to stop bad people from getting dangerous guns. You ever hear antis talk about it as a success story?
The antis often talk about registries, but never mention how ineffective they are. I can’t think of a single story that was stopped by Massachusetts gun registry, nor other states who also have registries, and of course Canada’s national registry does nothing.
Antis will talk about how safe Chicago or NYC, DC, or Boston are, thanks to their heavy restrictions on lawful gun control, but they won’t go walking through these cities after dark…at least not without their armed bodyguards.
They are neither rational, nor healthy people. Of course this is why they support gun control!
