Do people on here not know what a straw man argument really is ? ?
Example of a straw man
Sally says " i believe in common sense gun control because people that have mental health peoblems should not have guns, guns violence kills x amount of people every year,and there should be a limit on the round capacity"
Then bob says " why do you want to ban all guns "
Bob has committed a straw man argument because sally never said that she wanted to ban guns.
Sally said she she believes in common sense gun control because x,y,z not that she wanted to ban guns.

That is NOT a Straw Man argument.
In fact: Bob's question is not an argument at all.
(Bob does seem to be employing the logical "fallacy of many questions", though.)

Going along those lines, Sally isn't being totally up front with what she wants either. They say they want common sense gun control without ever defining what they mean by common sense. It doesn't mean the same thing to everyone.
