It can be difficult to keep up with the politically correct rules these days. Can we follow the evidence wherever it leads, or may we simply reject it, as the anti-Second Amendment groups do, when it is inconvenient to our politics? Are we permitted to bring religion into politics, or must it be shunned completely?
Kerry must have meant “AR-15,” and he must have meant “magazine” not “clip,” but just as clearly, he has no idea what he is talking about.
This mindset makes it difficult, even impossible, to have reasonable, fact-based discussions with them about what can be done to make our society even safer.
The politics here, however, are hardly inevitable; in fact, many signs point the other way.
