Never mind their detractors.

I agree.

However, I think part of the problem is that Trump lost the popular vote by a significant margin so you've still got a majority of people who didn't vote for the man.

The reality is that the majority doesn't always get its way. It's fine for them to speak out and express their criticisms, but they ultimately have to accept that's the way our system works.

Sure, you and others like you probably have your little ninja outfits and bandanas all pressed and ready to destroy anything you can get your hands on because you didn't get your way... How tolerant, peaceful and loving of you

I wonder if any NRA members will take MARTA

Not great that Atlanta is going to be associated with the NRA for the next few days but we'll certainly take their money.

So we have a threat to all of humanity and you want to treat it as some minor disagreement like which joint serves better ribs?

A lot of us are not thrilled they're coming, but it's happening so just grin and bear it. The downside to being a major convention destination is having groups you don't like occasionally showing up. But this will add millions to the city coffers so let's look on the bright side. Just avoid the GWCC area for the weekend.
