  •  It is time to take on the NRA. (4+ / 0-)

    Wayne LaPierre has become the Fred Phelps and James Dobson of the Gun Crazy Movement.

    He needs to be called out each and every time he opens his mouth.  The more honest sportmen feel that LaPierre is embarrassing them, the better.

    We will never be free from fear as long as we fear the NRA.

    •  Thats what the NRA wants (0+ / 0-)

      They want Obama to attack them frontally so that they can flip that into Obama being anti-second amendment. The smarter strategy is let them hang themselves with their own rope, and simply marginalize them by going over there heads and speaking directly to gun owners. In other words, ignore them.

      •  We have ignored them since Reagan and Brady were (2+ / 0-)

        shot.

        What good did ignoring them do? Sorry, I don't buy this.

        We ignore them.  They buy politicians.  They get all the gun votes in the Congress to go their way.   Yep, we sure have marginalized them.

        We will never be free from fear as long as we fear the NRA.

        •  Ignore them as in 'please proceed' (2+ / 0-)

          Lawyers never ask a question unless they know the answer.  The President doesn't say 'please proceed', unless you are - beep beep gone over the cliff.

          guns are fun v. hey buddy, watch what you are doing -- which side are you on?

        •  There are two types of ignoring (0+ / 0-)

          One is: pretend they don't exist.  That doesn't work.

          Two is: let them have their say and move right along when they've proven themselves to be fools.  That does work.

          Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.
