    of HuffPo.  Yes, really.

    I recently engaged with a guy who whined that even though he wears his NRA baseball cap and encourages a discussion, he doesn't seem to attract the kind of people he wants to talk to.  In other words, he's looking for a fight, not a discussion.

    We went round and round a bit and finally I said that his choices and his rhetoric are effecting everyone in his life...he denied this.  His replies were argumentative and defensive and it's a good guess that those in his life either enable him, support his point of view or shut him down.  

    The NRA has created a sub-set of gun owners who are more interested in muscle flexing and ranting than listening to sane and well thought out solutions.

    When someone is impatient and says, "I haven't got all day," I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day? George Carlin
