This Boston kid is doing a better job than many others at presenting a well thought out argument, while clearly distinguishing certain issues within the larger scope of the the arguments.
How the highly respected, decorated general shown here could describe in detail what a .223 round does from an M4 or M16 and then say these guns shouldn't be available to the general public is beyond me. The M4 and M16 ARE NOT available to the general public. Was there more to that video? Did I miss something? How can someone so knowledgeable and respected not understand and/or clearly distinguish automatic/select fire from semi-automatic.
There is such an incredible lack of understanding and education on firearms in this country, yet so many are so willing to (not speaking here of the general) make such grand pronouncements from pure ignorance. There is a clear philosophical bias that the argument is approached with (presuppositions) at the outset by these folks and they don't care about what they don't know and don't recognize that they may not know some things they should.
As Boston points out, education is so critical.
