    working to change it.

    By attacking the extremist forces that brought it into being in the first place.

    The NRA is anti-democratic.  It is extremist.  It is dangerous.

    And it needs to be smashed until it is no longer a danger.

    Sugar-coating it doesn't cut it.

    •  Massachusetts has a very low homicide rate. (0+ / 0-)

      In the most recent statistics NO homicides were accomplished with a rifle of any kind.

      I've heard today that Mass is proposing to reduce magazine size from 10 to 7 rounds.

      Looks like your state is working the process.

      I'm not a member of the NRA, but what you "and your ilk", as you refer to people in a pejorative manner, are doing is pushing moderates and independents to the right.

      You are betting the progressive agenda on gun control and will put other things you'd like to see implemented on hold.

      Take away a moderate's firearm and you expect them to vote with you on other issues?  NFW.

      I hope you think it's worth it...in a state with a low homicide rate, it doesn't appear to be a worthy tradeoff.  But that's just my view.
