The NRA and the Gun Lobby are not crazy, they are WRONG

We need to stop calling people with different ideas “crazy.” It let’s them off the hook. It says there’s no use in talking to them. It says they are to be ignored or written off. It doesn’t say the truth, which is that THEY ARE WRONG. DEAD WRONG. When we say “wrong” we are instantly engaged in a dialog. We are creating a conversation. They are wrong, wrong, wrong. Wrong on what makes for security. Wrong on priorities. Wrong on mental health. Wrong on god (I am not talking about atheism). The NRA is wrong. The gun lobby and its supporters are wrong. The guy you’re going to have dinner with over the holidays is wrong. Now we’re talking.
