But I've been crafting an eloquent way to describe the matter. thought I'd share.
One of the most juvenile and transparent failed insults of the anti-gun movement, is the gutter talk about phallic deficiency. I'm not going to rebut it. I'm simply going to declare the facts that prove how stupid it is.
Once a Man has elevated his intellect and maturity to such a level that he can master the gun in form and function, he no longer has any deficiencies left to compensate for. He has achieved a stature that sniveling weenies can attack only by trying to assert that he hasn't achieved it. But the gun on his hip and the confident smile as he walks away from their empty words, proves all he needs to prove.
The gun doesn't make him a Man. It just proves that the hecklers are not.
Anti's use all sorts of arguments and excuses to further their position that guns are inherently bad and people who chose to use and carry them are social miscreants. But what they really feel is this. They don't like guns. But it's not enough that they don't like them and don't want them, they don't want anyone else to have them either. Their position is one of control and they approach that position from a number of angles. People who carry guns present a danger to the public at large, are suspect at best with their actions, should be avoided, and are somehow weird and strange.
These people are perfectly willing to sacrifice the lives of others (and in the more extreme cases, themselves) on their alter of arrogant sanctity, rather than use a firearm in defense of one's person. And they don't want anyone else to be able to use such force if and when needed. The dichotomy of these two camps will never be resolved, regardless of the social or political climate or catastrophe we may find ourselves in. It really is all about control.
