One of the downsides of the Internet…

…is that pretty much any blithering idiot with a computer and Internet connection now has a way to spread their blithering idiocy for all to see…

Ban All Guns

The Founding Fathers of our country made a mistake when they said we had the right to bear arms. …
We need to ensure that those we elect to public office are not so stuck on protecting us from another British invasion that they cannot enact legislation that will limit the number of guns in our country. It is time to end this culture of violence. We have become desensitized to the point that we play video games that glorify murder — even cop murder.

Now of course I would never argue that brain cell-deficient assclowns like Robert L. Smith be denied their right to say what they wish, but one would hope those with such a bully pulpit would take it upon themselves to get a little more educated on what they’re talking about. But, on the flip side of this, we can also read the writings of people like L. Neil Smith, who had the perfect response to this sort of rhetoric:

(A politician) may lecture you about the dangerous weirdos out there who shouldn’t have a gun — but what does that have to do with you? Why in the name of John Moses Browning should you be made to suffer for the misdeeds of others? Didn’t you lay aside the infantile notion of group punishment when you left public school — or the military? Isn’t it an essentially European notion, anyway — Prussian, maybe — and certainly not what America was supposed to be all about?

And make no mistake, that’s exactly what Mr. Smith is advocating — for everyone to be punished for the misdeeds of a few. No doubt the Deacons for Defense and Justice would be so proud. /sarcasm
