I left a comment at Joan of Argghh!'s "Gun Control And Sex Education." It was my reaction to several well-spoken who had tried logic to enlighten a strange new visitor. See, that visitor left a comment that was rather remarkable in its lack of understanding about inequalities in brute strength, as well as choices and consequences and responsibilities to ensure one can deal with brutes. In fact it revealed a rather childish understanding of how the world works historically and its threats. Eloi like.
So rather than respond to the Eloi directly I addressed a short diagnosis to Joan that I was certain she would understand. Since it was an open letter, it is also my hope that my words would also alleviate the frustrations of the other commenters who had tried to enlighten the Eloi using logical arguments.
I really do hope my comment plays well with the other commenters who tried to reason with the man-child. It identified itself as not being American. I wonder if its another Canuck like my Toronto Troll who, despite repeated requests to stop, insisted on inserting antigun diatribes in old posts that had nothing to do with guns. Whatever the case with this particular Eloi, I empathize with those who try to drill through thick skulls and discover a dry well.
