I'm just wondering, after reading the latest from the NRA, if there is anything they're not capable of doing, and any occasion they're not capable of sullying?  

The latest, of course, is the assertion that Martin Luther King, Jr. may not have been killed if he had been carrying a gun.  How can someone with a straight face actually say that?  King was standing out in the open, on the balcony in front of his room at the Lorraine Motel when the gunshot rang out without warning.

Someone please tell me - without some sort of warning shot or notice, how in the hell is it that if King had a gun, that he "might not have been killed"?  Sorry, that's just not going to happen.  That's the NRA, trying to write a pretty version of revisionist history in an effort to get their message across.

Next someone's going to try and tell me that the NRA said something crazy like, if teachers at Sandy Hook had been armed, the tragedy may not have happened.  Wait, what?

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
