I guess I’m internet famous now. Or at least visible enough that Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action has blocked me on Twitter along with the other writers of TTAG. Which I guess is all well and good since I wasn’t interested in opening a dialogue with her anyway. Or so she thinks. Not true! I’d really like to talk with her. Unlike some of our writers, readers, and commenters . . .
I’m genuinely interested in understanding what makes Moms Demanding Action tick. I’d like to know more which is why I try to follow an equal number of pro-gun & anti-gun Twitter feeds. RF, our boy Leghorn and a militia of TTAG tipsters do the same.
Truth be told, I could be wrong on the whole gun thing and there’s no way to know unless I listen to what my critics have to say. Shannon blocking me shows that she’s not even remotely interested in letting The People of the Gun know what she’s saying, let alone hearing what we have to say.
At the end of the day, I shrug my shoulders and move on. I’m a nice guy. I like my guns. I like my freedom. And I’m open to criticism. I just ask the same of the other side: to listen to what I have to say as I listen to them.
