    How the Left "Blew It" on Gun Control
    Author Dan Baum says liberals should start listening to "Gun Guys" if they want to end the bloodshed.

    —By Deanna Pan

    Dan Baum is a self-professed "weirdo hybrid"—a card-carrying liberal from suburban New Jersey whose affinity for firearms places him firmly in the opposite camp. For his latest book, Gun Guys: A Road Trip, the former New Yorker scribe embarked on a 15,000-mile cross-country journey to figure out why millions of Americans—himself included—instinctively cling to their guns.

    His timing was notable. For this past December, just as Baum's book was going to press, news began pouring out about a horrific incident at an elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. Months later, Democrats and Republicans are clashing over gun-control at every level of government, and Baum worries that the voices of ordinary gun owners are being tuned out of the debate.

    Over a dubious cell-phone connection—Baum was driving in the Montana boonies—the author took me inside the mind of a gun guy as we discussed the lure of the NRA, the left's screw-ups, the merits of the AR-15, and why the "guns don't kill people" refrain makes sense—at least to a gun guy.
    Your article doesn't support that. At all. Did you read it perchance?

    It makes clear that the lines are blurred. That's my only point. In a world that has seen the Red Brigades, the Baader-Meinhof gang and the Weather Underground it's an absurdity to claim that political violence is the exclusive property of the right.

    Hardly. Your article clearly points to the subject being an extremely rare example. It also fails to indicate any propensity for violence.

    Which is why I've made no such claim. You don't read well.

    Tsk tsk. Getting defensive. Is it your claim now that your posts have not had the aim of emphasizing violence from the right? Really? You want to go with that?

    Yep. I've made no claim that political violence or violence in general is an arena dominated by the right, only that the current political climate obviously points to anti gun-control activists residing nearly exclusively on the right. Go ahead and dig up some quotes that would suggest otherwise.

    You have made that moronic claim several times and have constantly been tattooed on it yet you continue.

    No matter how much evidence is provided, you choose to live in this delusion that loughner wasn't a bagger. You are in denial and refuse to accept the truth. Face it. Loughner was a bagger.

    numerous posters have commented that your claim about loughner is nothing more than hysterical bald faced lies



    back up your claim-you cannot


    He was not a republican or a tea party member.

    Jared Lee Loughner a Registered Independent; Didn't Vote in 2010 - Political Hotsheet - CBS News


    Jared Loughner Independent | Arizona Shooting | Media | Mediaite
    NOw you have been educated yet again. Smart money suggests that you will continue to spew this silly lie however

    Does that tell us that this wacky correspondent isn't actually more upset over the huge soft drink ban kerfuffle?

    No.

    We won't know the full truth until after this evildoer is captured and interrogated under extreme rigor.

    Until then, many possibilities are open.

    Progressives. While they protest in the streets, destroy property, steal property, assault people, worship Marx, idolize Ernesto Guevara, defend Islamic terrorists, defend violent "direct action" groups and champion for a socioeconomic socialist coup of our country while they call everyone else radicals.

    Besides, I didn't know knocking off a traitor was considered "right wing." Were the Bolsheviks "right wing?" was Kim Jong Il "right wing" was Pol Pot "right wing?" was Ernesto "Che" Guevara "right wing?" was Castro "right wing?"

    All used fascist methods as a means to take power or dictate.... Hey much like Bloomberg attempting to play dictator.


    We've as a society have gone way beyond the "right wing/left wing" bull****. Today all we have are fascists and they come mostly from the left but plenty still come from the right.

    Facism is right wing. If you are a fascist you aren't a left winger. Plain and simple.
