Ammosexual Assery

I'm a very well armed liberal and I shot an expert rating using an M-16 back in the day. Gersh Kuntzman's article in the Daily News reported that his experience shooting an AR-15 was frightening. I don't think he's shot many guns but then so what? His experience is the one you should have the first time you shoot. If you're getting a Chris Matthew's tingle up your leg, you should seek counseling or a massage parlor.

Of course, shooting some heavier weaponry is even more noisy, but that doesn't negate his opinion. The ammosexual reaction is tied directly to masculinity, which has been my experience advocating for gun control. If the loons can't figure a way to challenge your patriotism, the next place they always go is your manhood, followed by your IQ. The example below is one of the milder insults Kuntzman published.

To gun lovers, you can't even have an opinion on assault rifles - NY Daily News:

..."Hey there Cupcake!" wrote Gary Haney. "I have never subscribed to the idea of 'gender confusion,' but after reading your article on the AR-15, I'm a believer because there is no way you and I are the same gender. You should surrender your testicles to the Department of Girlymen. I'm not sure where it's located, but your girlfriend Barack does!"...
If all this feels familiar, that's because it is. Debating with a gun nut is exactly the same as trying to discuss abortion or GOP failures. Now it could asserted that they are all the same, i.e. rightwing GOPers, but that doesn't really matter. The salient point is that they cannot be reasoned with so don't even bother. If you want sane gun laws, there is only one way to do it: elect Democrats and vote all the murderous NRA enabled fanatics out of office.
