It’s another school walkout today, so you know what that means: Facebook is full of rational discussion about guns.
All right, probably not.
Ever since the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, on February 14, 2018, the debate over gun ownership – social media has been even more toxic than usual.
The gun-control side has in general been content to attribute vile motives to their opponents, and to contend that people arguing for gun rights prefer guns over their own children.
Their reaction has made the debate over the 73 genders seem downright civil.
I wouldn’t say they’re being dishonest. It’s more that they genuinely don’t understand – and frankly don’t care to understand – their opponents, whom they know only in caricature.
