Comment of the Day: Gun Culture Gets Creepy
We have some great commenters here on Hair Balls, and it's time we paid some damn attention to them.
So we'll be highlighting a Comment of the Day each morning, from the previous day's work. Maybe two comments, even.
This will all be determined by a highly rigorous scientific formula involving wit, clarity and whatever else we feel like at the moment.
We did some debunking on the latest anti-gun control meme, one that says George Washington wants you to take up arms against the government.

It ignited a debate, and one gun-lover said he sometimes gets worried about his colleagues.
I'm so sick of the gun culture of this country. It's got to change. I grew up around guns, my dad was/is an avid hunter and I hunted myself as a boy; I'm not one who is prone to paranoid hysteria around firearms. But this militant craziness is beyond the pale. We live in a country with free elections for crying out loud. If you start reaching for your gun every time your guy loses on election day, you're a crazy moron. Go ahead and keep a gun for self-defense. If you like to hunt, by all means, go for it; I'm a meat eater, and I try not to be a hyprocrite about it. But all this high-minded talk about armed revolution is bullshit. I think 99% of these idiots are actually cowards who are too afraid to fire the first shot and would rather keep up the windy talk so somebody else will.
