    Debunking that myth may be the most important thing we can do today. We need to highlight the NRA's role as corporate shill for huge gun corporations that profit from honing and refining deadly machines.
    I used to work with this guy. Nicest guy you will ever find. But get him talking about guns and it was scary. He bought tens of thousands in guns and ammo before Obama took office cause he was worried, and he openly said via ads he saw, that he was going to ban all guns.

    I am a marketing guy and literally the marketing told him to do this. So he did it. I mean what a racket.

      The irony is powerful.  Nervous people are just funneling their hard-earned cash into the big corporations they fear, planning for doomsday scenarios and stocking up on weapons that most will never use.

      All so that a bunch of wealthy plutocrats can play golf all day.

        as his "hippie liberal" friend that he was being used. Duped. Alas clearly it didn't work.

        I was living in DC. Dating this women that was a pretty senior level executive at the NRA. She had a huge trade show budget. I recall telling the owner of the ad agency I worked at I could getting a meeting with her.

        I recall my boss, who was a better person than I (I was thinking about the money) told me she had standards and she didn't care how much money they had, we would NEVER do work for the NRA. Never!
