Thursday's the day ... to give the NRA a dose of its own obnoxious medicine
by Corky Siemaszko, nydailynews.com -- March 26, 2013
The NRA, which has been torturing heartbroken Newtown residents with anti-gun-control robo-calls, is going to get an earful on Thursday.
That’s when angry residents are planning to protest outside the NRA’s outpost in the Connecticut town where a madman armed with a Bushmaster assault rifle slaughtered 20 first-graders and six staffers at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
The demonstration is set to kick off around 4:30 p.m. at the National Shooting Sports Foundation -- 3 miles from the school.
The NRA’s tactics are “incomprehensible and repulsive,” said Dave Ackert of The Newtown Action Alliance.
Has the NRA No Shame? In their senseless word of words, all sensibilities are simply meant to be steamrolled.
Enough! Enough of them -- writing OUR laws. Who elected them King?
Thursday's the day ... to give our senators a dose of Courage.

Why Are These Six Democratic Senators On The Fence About Universal Background Checks?
by Aviva Shen and Adam Peck, thinkprogress.org -- Mar 26, 2013
After axing the assault weapons ban from the Senate’s comprehensive gun violence prevention plan, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is struggling to scrape together enough votes to pass the centerpiece of the plan: universal background checks. Republicans are refusing to vote for it, and even several Democrats in red states are wavering on their support. According to Greg Sargent at the Washington Post, these key votes include Senators Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Joe Donnelly (D-IN), and Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND).
Universal background checks are considered essential to the gun bill. They would close the “gun show loophole” that currently allows anyone to skip a background check if they buy a gun through a private sale. “Private” transactions between individuals or at gun shows are the origin point for 80 percent of guns used in crimes.

It's our country too. It's time to take it away -- from the NRA.
That say they have over our daily robo-called lives.
Enough with these Bullies, already.
