Carrots and Sticks

Joe has an excellent guest post on the division between people who advocate gun rights politely and people who advocate gun rights rudely. It's worth reading whether you have manners or not. Go ahead, I'll be here when you're done.

Now, that said... I tend to fall somewhere in between those two groups. Both have value.

There are times when "no compromise" is important, and there are times when bargaining can mitigate a loss.

There are almost no times when storming into a legislator's office or workplace open-carrying rifles held at the ready and apparently loaded is going to advance the cause.

Negotiations are useful.

Civil disobedience is useful.

Uncivil and threatening behavior is also useful... to the other side.
