Here is an example of a particularly loathsome type of MetroCon. He is not merely unfriendly to conservatives that refuse to kowtow to civil rights restrictions, he wants to actively restrict those rights.
Most Metrocons merely actively ignore or avoid gun issues. If pressed, they know gun people are their political allies and will come down on the side of the 2nd Amendment. If pressed from BOTH sides, their fellow conservatives and their fellow urbane urbanite friends and colleagues, they can be unpredictable and start voting for Assault Weapons Bans and Microstamping and other unreasonable intrusions.
Not Bill. And it reeks of, "well there is nothing wrong with ME having a gun or a cadre of bodyguards to protect my particularly valuable skin, but YOU rubes, you normal people, you can't be trusted. And God forbid one of you in your stupidity hurt one of your social betters, accidentally."
I don't know how to fix a brain like Bill's. I do know that he has it wrong on the whole high-brow/low-brow, Class-Warfare thing. I am better than HIM. He isn't good enough to clean dog poop off the soles of my shoes. Not with that tyrannical attitude. It's a shame he is allowed to vote or influence other voters.
And it IS a shame. If you ignore the times he acts like an ass, Bill is often on the correct side of many political issues. And he really makes the other side mad enough to punch a hole in their hats. But stuff like this hurt hats on his side of the aisle, too.
