arma virumque cano (et alia)
Probably good that the camera was panned in on Helmke himself. Had it panned back you would've seen that he's speaking to an empty room.
You guys have to get over that popularity-contest mentality. In all these discussions it's about what's right and wrong not who's got the most followers. In fact, if you wanted to think of it based on popularity, you'd lose. In spite of your cherry-picked data which denies the obvious, gun rights advocates are a tiny fraction of gun owners, who are in turn only a fraction of the general population. Yet you keep trying to say how popular your ideas are. It's bullshit.
