    Keep in mind that Richard Nixon also promoted gun control legislation. I can still remember President Nixon campaigning on TV against "saturday night specials." I was about 12 or 13 at the time, as I recall.

    Is logic the same thing as common sense?
    Two different things. Sometimes they lead to the same conclusions, sometimes they don't.

    Pretty true. Common sense has helped people survive many times. But science has also helped people survive, and science is often counter-intuitive, or uncommon sense.

    Use logic to determine the factuality of "everything I type is a lie".
