    something about the expression 'pro-gun-control liberals' sounds really oxymoronic, don't it?

    The comments are are derogatory gold mine of racism, homophobia, and threats. Nice work gun owners.

    Doubt it. Someone was triggered by the emoji.

    Read the whole thing. It is a hilariously terrible stream of ideas by someone who can barely write trying trying to cram every dog-whistle fox-newsesque trope into an article. Like I said, people need to aim higher if this is the type of nonsense they swallow.

    Guns, Obama, and Gays!!! Help us!!! Our conservative ways!!!


    Seriously the emoji stuff is ridiculous. If gun owners want to be seen as reasonable perhaps they should try and respond without the added homophobia, racism, and threats.

    Never underestimate the ability of a SJWNJ to be offended.

    If it prevents one person from being triggered by an emoji, then it is a worthy cause. :p

    Please read my posts before replying. I agree that banning emojis is ridiculous. You even quoted my post with it in there.

    please read my post before replying, you quoted my post and fail to see there are no threats, racism or homophobia in it.

    From the website:

    Um, OK. Try not paying your taxes, your alimony, or your MasterCard bill and backing up that threat with a gun.

    We live in a nation of laws. Owning a gun does not exempt you from that fact.

    Remove 'em. The Second Amendment will endure. Way too many damn emojis anyway.

    You are obviously uneasy with the venn diagram overlapping of underlying homophobia, racism, and violence as displayed in the above links by the gun apologist community.

    As expected however instead of distancing yourself from such comments and calling praxis out on the homophobic dog whistle in his link you feel compelled to defend it because guns are involved. As I have pointed out many times before it demonstrates a complete lack of objectivity.

    I'm going to add emoji to my
    list of things that originate from Japan I don't like. It'll join competitive car drifting and the habit of young women there doing strange things with their eyes.

    Right here. More deflecting from the issues without a substantive argument. QED.

    If you'd like to address my points above I welcome your comments.
