Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Another victory for the National Rifle Association and the Gun Owners of America, fighting to keep guns in the hands of the mentally unstable.

I'll contribute to someone who makes ads targeting the senators and congresspeople who have accepted money from the N.R.A. and G.O.A.

-- ads that tell the people in their district how much money their representatives and senators have accepted over the years from the N.R.A. and G.O.A. to block gun control.

-- ads that point out that the N.R.A. and G.O.A. are dedicated to keeping guns in the hands of the mentally unstable. That the N.R.A. and G.O.A. will donate to anyone who will block gun legislation and campaign ferociously against anyone who gets in their way.

-- ads that point out that the more people have guns, the more innocent people die.

-- ads with a scrolling list of the mass murders which have occurred since that senator or congressperson first started accepting money from the N.R.A. and G.O.A.

We cannot call this a civilized country until guns are out of the hands of nuts. And there are a whole lot of nuts.
