NO DAMMIT THAT’S NOT WHAT I’M SAYING

People who own guns and are worried about them being taken away are being misled by political opportunists. They’re being told that if a person is concerned about the *extent* of the availability of guns, it means they want to eradicate all guns. No. It doesn’t mean that. It just means there are TOO DAMN MANY guns…

If you have a house with a whole lot of kids in it and you leave two or three guns in every room, loaded, just lying around, what will happen? That’s what’s happening to the USA. The USA is a house with many children in it. There are adults, too, yes. But there are many children. So you simply want to NOT HAVE SO MANY GUNS in that house. (No I don’t *literally* mean children only.) Not having so many guns in “the house” that is this country doesn’t mean you can’t have some guns, locked up, and take them out, carefully when you, the adult, needs them or wants them…

It’s as if gun ownership creates some odd, particular blindspot, some limited area of cluelessness; some selective cognitive impairment. “Let’s paint it green!” “I don’t like red!” “I said green.” “Why are you saying red? I don’t like red!” “I’m NOT SAYING RED!”
