HATEMAIL: Burn In Hell, Hell’s Saints!

I’m doing something different here today. I’ve decided that any hateful messages, comments, etc. I get I’m going to respond to if I can.

We posted a tribute to our fallen friends, who were killed in a car crash on the way here to visit us last weekend.
Someone decided to leave the following comment:

The first thing that comes to mind, for me, is how commonly I see anti-gun statists expressing far more violent and destructive habits and desires than any liberty-centric person I’ve ever met.
Anyone who has such a low regard for human life as you do is far more dangerous than any gun. You see this very commonly among those who believe that freedom flows from the barrel of the government’s guns, and it is called ‘projection’. You know that if *you* had access to a firearm, that *you* would be a mass-shooter, therefore you falsely assume that *anybody* with access to a firearm would do the same. Rest assured that violent tendencies and reckless disregard for human life is not normal, and that you do, in fact, have a serious mental condition that should be addressed by a professional.

Secondly, the comment about ‘potential mass shooters’. How is this assumption qualified? Is it because they were firearm owners? Are lumberjacks ‘potential axe murderers’ and doctors ‘potential drug dealers’?

I’d ask about your thought process, but it’s clear you aren’t confident in your assumption. This is evidenced by the fact that you are hiding behind an alias, and the anonymity of the internet. You know that if you were stand behind your comments with the weight of your actual identity that you would be forced to acknowledge how little educated people actually respect you. If you can’t stand behind your statements, you are a coward.
