Sorry! I just couldn’t resist.
After listening to arguments against reasonable gun control from the NRA’s LaPierre, Keene and the like, I have a simple hypothesis that makes complete sense of this reasoning. (Of course, it’s just a hypothesis so it could be wrong.)
For the extreme advocates, the number of rounds, the size of the magazines and the kind of assault rifles they own defines their manhood. Take away their guns and just neutered things are left. So the debate is not about gun control, it’s about manhood control. They will do and say anything to protect what they perceive as their manhood
