Hoplophobe of the week, Trish Nelson

Gun rights, gun rights, gun rights, ad nauseum. What about the rights of ordinary citizens to not be endangered in public by gun-toters who promise that using the gun is the last thing they want to do? (At least that's what the trainings they are all voluntarily attending are supposed to be teaching). But if it is the case that they are being trained not to use the gun, why do they want one? What are they so afraid of here in Iowa? And why are their fears more important than everyone else's?

After japete, I don't even bother trying to convince anyone anymore. I just figure to tell them, "I ain't givin' them up." Bring it. We're the ones with the guns."

I gave up a long time ago. I work with someone who repeated the "no one needs guns" line. I asked her why she was afraid of an object? She had to stop and think about it. It didn't make a difference that day but I think it planted a seed.

But this girl is beyond fear and approaching hate.

I've tried posting comments on that site, but so far they've never seen the light of day. I guess opposing views aren't accepted.
