If you only read one thing today

Via Insty,

I’ve come to realize after the Sandy Hook shooting that the reason we can’t have a rational gun debate is because the anti-gun side pre-supposes that their pro-gun opponents must first accept that guns are bad in order to have a discussion about guns in the first place.

And that is exactly the issue.  You cannot “have a conversation” or Compromise” or “come to an agreement” when the other side cannot respect, if not agree with the other side’s point of view.

But really, no matter what we agree to, they’ll just move the goalposts and try again.
