It's a way to avoid engaging in a true discussion, peremptorily dismissing any view one does not share while simultaneously virtue-signaling to one's colleagues.

You've been on this board long enough to know about it.
You're the one making the case that it's a slipper slope as a counter point for dismissal. You just hand waved away any argument you could have made and you did it again with the post I'm responding to.

We have people who want to ban guns or the majority of them in the US. It's not a secret. Because of this we see legislation that picks off individual guns and that looks like slippery slope material to gun owners.

We protect the first amendment with great intensity to avoid a whittling away of that right. Gun owners feel the same about the 2nd Amendment.
