Come on now,

calling this intellectual masturbation is not very respectful. Why do people conclude you can have a gun? Why do some conclude you shouldn't? My point is these are conclusions. And conclusions are based on premises. It's good to look at the premises we hold and not just debate our conclusions. You are of course free to disagree with my premise, but please don't belittle me for having one or for putting it out there.
