Like this argument:
but I cannot possibly imagine that someone's attachment to their AR-15 being as strong as a parent's attachment to their 6-year old daughter, so the really have less "excuse" to respond as irrationally or emotionally.
What does someone's love for a child have to do with their desire to own a firearm and their ability to give a LOGICAL response to the gun legislation debate?
That's a total appeal to emotion, just like the people who post pictures or discuss the dead children at Sandy Hook. Total sensationalism, and strawman. It doesn't help to address the point about what is effective legislation for gun ownership. It's basically "You love kids more than guns, right? Right?"
What a crock. This thread has become tiresome.
