In my time, I’ve been accused of all manner of vile things. When you write about politics, any kind of politics, that’s going to happen. It’s never particularly pleasant, but you build up a kind of thick skin about it. Especially when you realize that the things you’re being accused of are often more indicative of the other person than of yourself.
Take the vehement anti-gunner, for example.
While some anti-gunners are true believers for whatever reason, there is a large percentage who seem to be latched onto this idea that gun owners are perpetually unhinged and represent a clear and present threat for all.
