    In my local Tucson newspaper, the gun nuts are on the defensive, whining that people are “insulting” them. My reply was that the feelings of the people who had lost family members, friends, and co-workers to gun violence had been hurt a whole lot more.

    I watched this yesterday on MSNBC and it was excruciating. Wayne LaPierre revealed himself to be arrogant, vile, unrepentant, unremorseful, and a veritable psychopath.

    Maybe, finally, the Life Members of the NRA will replace LaPierre and the Exec. Board with better, more media-savvy and politically-adept candidates at the NRA Natl Convention. Perhaps with help from some of the more sensible and moderate firearms manufacturers and distributors.

    Life Members have no power in the NRA. Members have no power in the NRA. The members vote on nothing. The Board of directors have the only power and they are made up of mostly Gun Manufacturer leadership and politicians.

    …In the bigger picture, this represents yet another nail in the coffin of the GOP as we all knew it.Hard righters ALWAYS defend the NRA and crow about 2nd Amendment Rights(though few of the really understand what the amendment says)…..anything associated with right wing politics is toxic now and they have done all of this without help from the Left or even the Moderates. They “Shot themselves in the Foot”…the Sarah Palins, Karl Roves et al are atop the smoldering heap of “Not Relevant” garbage. Time for a clean slate and if wouldn’t even be a bad idea to rename or abandon the words “Grand Old Party”…Party’s over, folks.

    the NRA is nothing but a lobbyst group for gun manufacturers

    proof = more than 1/2 of their $ doesn’t come from members but does come from big gun Biz manufacturers

    NRA run of the mill members are suckers being used by big biz to keep profits rolling in

    The people are the ones who are going crazy over some guy killing some more people, people kill people everyday in America and around the world and guns are not the problem, people who are on psychotropic drugs and psychiatric treatment are the problem in many cases and they need to arrest the psychiatrist and the psychotropic drug makers who sell their mind twisting drugs that make these people kill others and themselves.

    If the Jews had guns in Nazi Germany they would have had a fighting chance to stay alive and not be killed in the millions by some mad man named Hitler and his hang men. Try to think about that before the next dictator takes over and it is too late to do anything but be killed. If you think it can not happen again you need to read your history books.

    In China a while back, a madman took over a classroom and sliced the throats of several children with a knife. The NRA is suggesting that we have a policeman in each school. Is that really unreasonable? –signed: a gay concealed-carry permit holder.

    How about the fact that Columbine *did* have an armed security guard?

    Remember that Romney purchased a Life Membership when it was politicaly expedient.

    The Jews did have guns in the Warsaw ghetto uprising – a controversial response to the prevailing attitude of religious pacifism (e.g. study of the talmud), some of which coexists with the IDF in Israel today.

    Look how many guns are sold each time an incident as this occurs! Gun nuts are nuts…Did anyone expect anything less or more from a shill for the gun industry?? Him and fakes ‘news’, and now the emphasis is on mental health, not guns, at least with the fakes news folks. And these clowns talk of the homo-lobby! I did appreciate seeing a fellow cut up his nra card last night on the news.

  12. Diogenes Arktos says

    @BillMiller: the Religious Right has been bending over backwards with cockamamie theories blaming everything but guns. One has been that there were no males at Sandy Hook. (Fact check: there were two.) One blames the teacher’s unions. One blames abortion. It goes on and on.

    The Not Really American gun nuts are proof positive that arming idiots with weapons and money will get you deranged press conferences and today’s Repugnant republican party. Both filled with reality adverse crackpots who care nothing for the greater good.

    I also think the NRA will keep it’s same position politically but without the same leadership- If you can’t serve up your media performance properly to the point that the NY post is putting you on blast, you are toast
