Sam Harris is a philosopher, public intellectual, and neuroscientist. He is also an outspoken Atheist. Not someone you would expect to be on our side. This is kind of high level writing and it might not be for everyone, but it's really good stuff. I potsed it on the site where I debate intellectual antis and am waiting for the coming head asplosions.

That was a good read. I sent it around.

I'm debating posting this in places where the anti's dwell, e.g., Facebook. The author makes many good pro-2A points that I would like to expose to the anti's, but he opines on many things anti-2A at the same time. This guy is possibly schizophrenic and should perhaps be a prohibited person!

While we all pay rapt attention to the gun control scare as do the anti's trying to steamroll it, many Americans don't own guns or ever stop to think about their second amendment right. I doubt they have the interest or attention span to even read this lengthy blog. Just like with the debt ceiling, foreign policy or most any other issue, a surprising majority are completely disengaged. Shitty, irresponsible citizens in my book, but they are large in number and their collective apathy only benefits the opposition.

I'm assuming you don't have the credentials to make such a determination.

"Schizophrenia is a challenging disorder that makes it difficult to distinguish between what is real and unreal, think clearly, manage emotions, relate to others, and function normally."


This is one of the most rational, cogent pieces I've read since the shooting.

There were too many things I disagreed with to praise it as amazing, but that's because if I disagree with even one thing I throw it out the window Tongue

Surely you understand this was merely a flippant remark. Again, he makes great points but makes arguments for the other side, too. In other words, he seems to be of two minds. The literal meaning of schizophrenia is Greek for "two minds." But ok, I'll retract "possibly schizophrenic" and replace with "a study in cognitive dissonance."

Regardless, the author does misinterpret the 2A to some degree and proposes gun control actions which clearly violate "shall not be infringed" in my opinion.

I wasn't so sure. I'm glad I was wrong. Wink

He is definately not a 2A supporter in the same way that we are. He really isn't a gun guy, but he crushes when it comes to the defeating the self-defense and crime arguments.
