I doubt I need to even post a link...anyway, as I've noted before, I'm almost a 2nd amendment absolutist. Not because I own guns (I don't), but I know lots of people who do, and who are completely responsible owners and users of weapons. Besides, at this point trying to close that Pandora's box would be like trying to hold back the ocean.
But the NRA has long since crossed the line from advocating responsible gun ownership to fetishization of not just guns, but of a ridiculous and puerile world view. A perversion and distortion that's not even an accurate rendering of the past, but a crude fantasy drawn from, as best as I can tell, old movies and TV shows.
And every time we're tragically reminded of this, they double down on the hate. Which, given their lobbying power, isn't very good at all...
