Let’s Call Things What They Are

It’s time to start calling the current wave of lilywhite, urban-progressive-privilege-sotted gun mania what it is.

Bigotry.

As Jon Caldara at the D-Post does:

Boulder City Council is on the verge of passing a sweeping anti-gun ordinance, laughably called an assault weapons ban. So loosely written, this ordinance would ban the first gun I ever owned, a simple .22 caliber rifle, the same type most farm boys get on their twelfth birthday. Its sin? It can be fitted with a pistol-grip or a folding stock.

I understand the fear and bigotry coming from City Council. I used to be like that myself. In younger days I was a proud member of Handgun Control Inc., now called the Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence…

The Anti-Defamation League and The Gay and Lesbian Fund sponsors a program plastered throughout Boulder schools call “No Place For Hate.” They ask students to make a resolution of respect: “I will seek to gain understanding of those who are different from myself.”

But Boulder’s council has done nothing to understand the culture and values of gun owners and little to understand much more than the cosmetic aspects of guns.

Boulder has become a place for hate.

Read the whole thing.

And then go forth and call a spade a spade.
