Excellent point. That further highlights the recklessness of the people who are yelling and screaming, but don't know even the basics about the topic.

In a democracy, the will of the majority should rule. I don't believe that the people who are blindly demanding a repeat of failed prohibitions past or the NRA represent anything close to a majority. Maybe we need a mainstream organization to represent the people who know enough to make informed decisions to raise its voice and bring some sanity to the national discussion.
