Get used to this sort of bastardry by the anti's fellas as here in Australia we've been fighting these dickheads for years and they will use any means available to try and get the Sheeple(general population referred to here in Australia as human sheep who believe everything the media tells them) and they'll use the latest massacres as a driving tool to get to their ends.
They will also then attack fishing and any other outdoor activity because a lot of these tools are also tree huggers that jump on this bandwagon as a means to an end.
At every chance counter their lies with solid facts and easily checkable statistics, don't be abusive to them but be firm sort of like talking to a 5 yr old kid. The more you counter them without abusing them the more the general public will see what a bunch of genital abusers these idiots are.
I like saying that how can you identify a potential mass murderer if the person next to you is a judge,lawyer,doctor,tradesman,secretary etc with a family and they handle your money,health and business and they own and use guns for hunting and for target shooting.
This shuts them up real quick and then they come back with some tripe and it's then that you keep hitting them with fact and ask them if they have a degree in psychology and how they can tell if somebody is about to go off the deep end?
If you read a lot of the anti's replies in forums they're the 1's saying that the hunters should be shot,hung etc so that says a lot about their mentality and may be they should be the failed test tube experiments that should have a psych test done on them.
The ability to think and speak doesn't necessarily guarantee intelligence
