I have been following the back and forth on the Second Amendment for most of my life, always in the pro-2A side of the argument. While our opponents are are really bad at facts, they are good at the rhetoric game. They come up with terrific sound bites that make civilian disarmament sound like a real solution to the problems of crime and terrorism. Our side is not as good at the sound bite competition because they are so good at twisting our words. For instance, when we say that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is with a good guy with a gun what they use it to convince those in the middle that we want to hand out guns to everyone. We say more guns when what we mean is more people properly trained and carrying the guns they are trained on and willing to step up for the good of their community. When we say that we think that a teacher who has gone through the proper training should be able to legally carry their handguns in order to protect their students they turn it into pro-gunners wanting to hand out handguns to every teacher. We need to start being more clear in what we say. Our sound bites need to say what we mean with as little a chance of twisting as possible.
