So. I have some friends in an Internet chat room. It's a fairly close knit group, and I enjoy going there.
Well, at least, I used to. The woman who runs the chatroom and the subsequent forum is a lady I've known for years. I love her dearly, and almost view her as a second mom.
However, she's...an extreme conservative, as are several others in the room.
I haven't visited there ever since before the Sandy Hook shooting. I was even less inclined to visit after it happened, because I knew what I would hear. In spite of the fact that twenty children and six adults were massacred in a horrifying way, I knew that they would all be discussing it. I knew that they would stand in defense of gun rights. I knew they would in all likelihood agree with arming teachers to the teeth in the schools, since the only way to prevent government fascism is to have a well-armed populace. And of course, Obama's going to take away everyone's guns and leave us all defenseless. Or something to that effect.
The honest truth is this.
I don't want to hear it.
