The NRA is a joke. Did you see Wayne LaPierre's speech? It was ridiculous. Take a look:
He blames video games when, in fact, they make video games! He blames a product his organization makes! He blames movies. The NRA loves violent movies. The most famous gun commercial, Dirty Harry, is their wet dream. They even have the gun in the Fairifax, VA museum, just outside of Washington DC, so their corporate stooges can go and get their dicks up without drugs for a change.
The problem is, the violent culture that Wayne LaPierre lambasted was in fact the culture he sells. It is the culture of fear and violence. Should we have armed security gaurds at schools? Now that is a fair argument to have, however, I do not think that a gun salesman should be at the table. Calling him a gun salesman is an insult to gun salesmen. That's sad because those are treasonous bastards who knowingly sell guns to straw purchasers so ATF and police officers can be killed.
Ever pick a fight online with a gun nut? I love how it always comes down to them threatening to shoot you. It's sick. They are sick. Gun hoarders are sick. You have a need for more than 2 guns, then seriously, you are sick.
They are against giving to the community as a police officer, but willing to take the law in their own hands. That scares the hell out of me. When a police officer draws his gun, he is held accountable. Yes, there are problems with the system with this, but a police officer is trained to protect the community. You walk into a grocery store with a military style assault rife strapped to your back, you are a menance. Because I don't know if you need to renew your Viagra prescription or shoot up the joint. You don't have a badge, you don't represent your community. If you carry a gun in public, that means you have given up on society.
So I will leave you with Melissa Harris-Perry's, lead by not Melissa Harris-Perry but no less fantastic Joy Ann Reid, discussion on this issue. Enjoy!
Now, I'm going to start asking you this every episode in this story: please go to the paypal link and make a payment to help aid the protesters in paying legal fees or if you would rather send a check, please message Sue Trace and she will help you. They do have attorneys who are representing them for low or no cost. But at $36 per jury fee, the costs are mounting. These people are singled out by the Scott Walker administration and are trying be silenced instead of being allowed to express their Constitutionally protected rights.
