So he was checking to make sure that the people we're going to go to heaven before he killed them? Head still kind of single and out Christians isn't it?

I do kinda think the gun issue is a smoke screen.

It isn't a smokescreen, it is a component of the problem.

The straw man is saying that people advocating for better gun laws and regulations are advocating that it solves the entirety of the problems with mass murderers and violent crime. No one is claiming that better gun laws alone solve these issues.

On my phone. Smile

I think the gun control debate overtakes all the other issues. The message becomes muddled as 'a bunch of hippies trying to take away all the guns'.

That's what I meant by smoke screen.

No and no.

Put away your persecution flag, it doesn't fly well here.

Maybe in a way. It's absolutely true that the straw man is the idea that "hippies" are coming for people's guns. But it would also be a straw man to say that the "hippies" believe gun control solves all the problems.
