STOP!! This is not a discussion about guns. This is a discussion about the subjects that we liberals/leftists/progressives are uncomfortable talking about.
This post is inspired by a wonderful discussion yesterday with two of the senior denizens of BlueNC. At one point I asked if we shouldn't start arming ourselves, given the heavy accumulation of weaponry by the increasingly rabid right wing in our country. I felt relieved when my question (and myself) were treated and discussed with respect.
It shouldn't be hard to talk about this question, but it is.
Do we secretly believe in our hearts that some questions shouldn't even be asked?
