38. The many reasons why much of this is simply rhetoric and hyperbole

Title: "Except firearms ARE an instrument of domestic terror"
One important step in even considering this statement is a clear definition of "domestic terror".
Please elaborate.


"There is no pleasure-seeking in the world that is worth keeping handguns around with all the deaths they cause."
Handguns are used regularly by public servants and private citizens for self-defense and the defense of others. "...reasonable acts of self-defense, such as the use of force to kill, apprehend, or punish criminals who pose a threat to the lives of humans or property" are generally excluded as terrorist activities.


My opinion here is that your rhetoric and hyperbole buffet is broad-brushing, simplistic and emotional dog chow to be swallowed by accepting trusting folks who eschew thinking for themselves. I don't at all disparage those who hold congruent opinions with you but I distrust in the extreme your presentation, lacking a logical defense in how you reach your conclusions, and your simply demanding general concurrence.
