The "Dancing in the Blood" Accusation


First, the gun lobby goes straight to the exploitation argument — which is, of course, a big lie. We never allow an assertion of this kind to stop conversation about other issues.

Nobody who points to inadequate flood-control policies is accused of "exploiting" the victims of a deluge. Nobody who criticizes a botched response by the Federal Emergency Management Agency is accused of "exploiting" the victims of a hurricane or tornado.

No, it's only where a gun massacre is concerned that a gag rule is imposed on any thinking beyond the immediate circumstances of the catastrophe. God forbid we question a tenet of the theology of firearms.
On The Truth About Guns, no opportunity is ever missed.

What's your opinion? Does the article make a good point? Is this response on the part of the gun rights activist an indication of their failed position?

Please lease leave a comment.

    To make smoother transitions from color to color, consider joining
    with new color in the center of your hand, which we would consider
    an oversight.
