I’m talking about American Gundamentalists.
Gundamentalists take unrestricted right to bear arms as a tenet of religious or quasi-religious faith. The worst go into go into knee-jerk denial when approached with any studies or opinion that don’t fit their worldview.
I strongly disagree with those folks on most things because of unintended consequences. Though they deny it, many innocent people die of gun related violence in the USA.
But I do agree with gun nuts on a few things.
Around half of Americans support gun rights despite school shootings. In a Democracy, that opinion should be respected, even if I disagree.
We agree that hunters, police, military and sportsmen should have full access to firearms.
Many Gundamentalists agree that private businesses should have the right to restrict or allow firearms on their property. We can support or boycott those companies, if we choose.
We agree with Sedro-Woolley Police Chief Lin Tucker. Firearms training is a good thing. Firearms safety is important. Click through to his Facebook post if you want to read more.
