I’m a pretty Pro-2nd/RKBA guy. I like guns. I believe in an absolute right to self-defense against aggressors. But none of that means I want emotionally stunted children or mentally ill people to own or have access to firearms. This is a position that would be considered ‘rational’ in a sane world. Here in the U.S., sanity has been entirely rejected by our conservatives. The sad part: Irrational people cannot see the irony in their own positions.
The obvious take away: At some level, conservatives are aware that they aren’t mature, stable people.
