Whether it's a congressman from Missouri who says there cannot be a pregnancy in cases of "real rape" or simply one of his constituents who never showed up to biology class demanding all birth control pills be banned because they only work by aborting babies, most people generally agree they are idiots who contribute nothing meaningful to the debate.
If it's a congressman from California who thinks a pistol grip magically makes a gun more lethal, or one of his constituents who can't tell a hunting rifle from a machine gun writing angry letters demanding things that are already illegal need to be made illegal, why should their opinions be considered?
We don't take people who say stupid things about biology and reproduction seriously when they "contribute" to the abortion and birth control debates. Why should anyone take people who say stupid things about guns seriously in gun debates?
