Light Blogging

I'm in the midst of troll wrestling here. Light blogging today.

An excerpt shot over the bow:
"Before this thread spirals out of control, I simply wish to say that a mature man does not judge the morality of others.

Your statements imply that you can know what is in a man's mind and what is in his heart. I do not believe in such clairvoyance. I would be very careful with these types of assumptions, and especially the ascription of moral principles to them. Judging people who have walked where you have not is an inherently precarious endeavor fraught with error and embarrassment. Be careful."
So, what was the purpose of wrestling this particular troll rather than ignoring him? One of the first steps to gun control, indeed mind control, is the idea that particular actions are inherently moral or immoral in and of themselves. When someone wants to assert that carrying a gun is a moral or immoral act rather than a practical conclusion, they are opening up a debate that could have severe ramifications for CCW. I will not let that fallacy stand unopposed.

I really like how he dumped the thread with the old "I can't have a discussion with someone who believes (insert anything here)."

Troll for sure.
This fellow would argue with a fencepost(and still lose.)
I don't think there is enough time in a gunfight to think about morals.
