The smartest Gun-Controllers in the room
Extension:DynamicPageList (DPL), version 3.1.3: Warning: No results.
Those were just a few of the many examples that cause informed gun owners such frustration. And this isn't about "gotcha" type gaffes, this is fundamental failure to understand what they're talking about, write laws on, campaign against, or worse -- intentionally misleading others for their agenda.
If you don't know how to hold a gun, what the parts are, proper terms, usage, history, or function, or you have no functioning bullshit detector on statistics that confirm your political views, then you're not up for being a journalists, legislator or commenter on the topic of guns, as it will only make you look stupid or a lair, and polarize the informed against you.
Now that's not to say these gun-idiots can't be intelligent and functioning human beings in other aspects of their lives. They might be quite smart and accomplished, as long as you don't touch the emotional hot-button topic of boomsticks. But whenever you tug at their heart-strings, their brain-strings break or disengage.
