Someone had a child killed by guns. Obviously that person has a privileged viewpoint that trumps the views of all other Americans, the Constitution, and all natural rights! We must all bow down to the consecrated holy victim, blessed be their victimization!
I love the way you put that! That is exactly what Obama and the leftists were hoping, that all of us would "think" with our emotions instead of reason and logic.

Victimization has been such a fetish as a supposed trump card over all other considerations among Leftists that, what is an oppressed victim to do when society doesn't oblige them by sufficiently oppressing and victimizing them? Why they have to create a hoax crime!
Feeling sorry for someone who lost their child doesn't mean that I am going to give up on the Constitution or surrender my natural rights.
When many hundreds died due to a false story about desecration of the Quran at Gitmo - would trotting out the families of those who died be a convincing argument that the press shouldn't be able to publish the stories (even false stories) that they want?
Somehow I am unconvinced that the ‘argument’ (i.e a naked emotional appeal, as you pointed out) goes both ways for them.
