Stigmatizing Gun Owners Makes Civil Debate Impossible

Stigmatizing Gun Owners Makes Civil Debate Impossible « Commentary Magazine
Rather, this was about the desire on the part of some in the liberal mainstream media to stigmatize legal gun ownership and to whip up sentiment for not just tighter controls but an eventual ban.
This makes it easier to understand why the National Rifle Association fiercely resists even the most reasonable gun control measures.
If even those who have jumped through the not inconsiderable hoops erected by the authorities to gain a legal gun permit in New York are now to be treated as if they were the moral equivalent of sex offenders, it’s clear the goal of the anti-gun media is not just to focus discussion on assault weapons and large ammunition clips but to ban individual gun ownership altogether.
