Gun Nuts Are Also Dupes

Posted by on Fri, Feb 15, 2013 at 11:55 AM

This story is about a month old, but it lays out the key financial facts that the NRA makes bazillions of dollars from the gun manufacturing industry. By ginning up panic with paranoia, they line their own pockets. Via Kos.

It isn't just the gun nuts that are dupes. There are a lot of reasonable gun owners who think it's a good thing for the NRA to push wacky ideas they don't agree with. By staking out crazy, extremist positions, gun owners think the debate get's re-centered in a safer place for them.

But that's worked a little too well, when you have the ATF rendered impotent, and science research into guns censored. And proposals with 91% public support, like universal background checks, treated like questionable notions that lawmakers aren't even willing to debate, let alone enact.

If ever a radical special interest held Washington hostage, it's the NRA.

Of course they are.

The ACLU falls in the same category as the NRA.

A "radical special interest," upholding unpopular Constitutional amendments since the Con-Convention...

BTW, Christopher Dorner (x-LAPD officer and currently dead guy) was a raging Liberal who thought the same way as "ol crazy" up there (Cthulhu).
