These are so common they should be an FAQ.
“Nobody wants to take away your guns.”
How you lie to yourselves:
This huge list of people http://thewriterinblack.blogspot.com/2014/09/nobody-wants-to-take-your-guns.html want to take away our guns. You can’t claim it’s only rhetoric. You can’t claim it doesn’t matter. You can’t claim it’s a fabrication or “out of context.” They have stated so, repeatedly, in public. Anyone repeating “no one wants to take away your guns” is deluding themselves into a false moral high ground.
If you are one of these people, knowing this, you have a couple of choices: Contact all the above people and express your objections, or admit that you’re okay with people taking away our guns. In which case, you’re lying to us, too.
