The Recovering Liberal


Jul 1, 2022

I bought the characterization of the "gun situation" hook, line and sinker...you know, the one that positions "common sense gun laws" as something that will work for the greater good, and positions gun rights advocates as gun-slinging, rebel-flag-wearing crazies. I bought it. And I'm no idiot. I bought it because I played into the hands of the manipulators of both emotions and of data. Here I discuss that BS liberal narrative and the sneaky shenanigans that pervert real data to support the BS narrative that advocates for stricter gun control and diverts attention away from difficult-to-solve socioeconomic and mental health problems, by claiming they are actually gun problems. Spoiler alert: They aren't gun problems. The real enemy of our public safety? Making gun ownership more difficult.
