I found out this morning that someone on Facebook defriended me after a discussion about gun rights for individuals in the US. I thought it was pretty polite discourse, but when confronted with rational arguments, facts, and figures, I guess that doesn’t leave the other party much to stand on but his pride.
No real loss with the defriending, but it just confuses me why some, when faced with facts, deflect or personally attack or plain-out ignore said facts.
Is it too early to say I need a drink?
