  •  His crazy is predicated on the central lie of the (18+ / 0-)

    NRA: they don't represent people - as in gun owners - they represent gun manufactures and their profits.

    Trying to pretend to care about gun deaths when a variety of manufactures (not nearly all of them) can be shown to not care at all. He's trying to talk about protecting people when all he's doing is protecting rich people's money, but he can't come out and say that, so he sounds nutty as a fruitcake.

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

    •  And as long as those on the left keep proposing (0+ / 0-)

      measures that do nothing about the real problems and only infringe on and punish the millions of law abiding gun owners the NRA will continue to gain power.

      Permits for carry, or even ownership: OK
      Funding the BATFE: OK
      Stopping illegal sales and trafficking: OK
      Societal focus to improve medical and mental health: OK
      Enforcing existing laws and cracking down on crime: OK

      Requiring gun registration: no
      banning weapons beyond those that are already NFA: no
      magazine capacity limits: no
      These last three are nothing more than things that sound good, but have no real value.  The biggest thing they achieve is creating opposition to progress.
