Gunloonery As Religion
"You would get a far better understanding if you approached us as if you were approaching one of the great religions of the world."--Warren Cassidy, NRA Executive VP.
When one comes to the gun debate, the great lesson that is quickly learned is that gunloonery is a religion or a faith. Its adherents are rapidly exposed as unable to argue or debate based on facts or science. In fact, if you do refer to facts or scientific studies, you are told all universities, all research facilities, all scientific bodies are biased and wrong. You will be told statistics are "hogwash" and statistical inference is slightly less reputable than alchemy.
