Why is it that when we as citizens disagree with each other, but have no facts to support our disagreement, we resort to name calling? This is a pretty poorly presented opinion piece, really just name calling. Don't demonize law abiding gun owners as "hillbillys", "gun nuts", "gun sickos", or "gun pervs" (really?). Just as I would hope that all gun owners would show some respect for those who are fearful of guns, or simply don't want to be around them, by being more considerate about how and when they wear/use their firearms. I do believe an armed society is a polite society, but that means we all (armed and unarmed) should be polite to each other. If Mr. Cope would like to have a discussion about the facts of gun ownership, I would be happy to do that, but I am not going to call him names, or make fun of him for his beliefs.
