NRA Endorses Guns for Terrorists

Just when you think the extremists in the NRA have hit an new nadir with their past support for armor piercing bullets and automatic assault weapons they begin a even more preposterous stance by support guns for terrorists. You heard right. The NRA has decided that our terrorists threat lists are not sufficient grounds for stopping somebody from buying weapons or explosives. Over the past over 90% of people on the terrorist list have been able to purchase these goodies not because the list didn’t identify them as terrorists but because there is no law stopping them from doing so. Seems the NRA is concerned that the terrorists rights maybe crushed by the heavy hand of the US government and that the list is faulty. Hello, the NRA is probably right about the legitimacy of the list but then fix the damn list.

July 22nd NRA Update:
The latest affront to common sense was a concealed-gun bill that was just narrowly defeated in the Senate. The amendment would allow licensed gun owners in one state to be able to bring those concealed weapons into states with more stringent gun laws. The argument was that a car license in one state is applicable in another and they argue criminals don’t bother with gun licensing. Not true of course since lots of murders are committed by licensed gun owners but the NRA likes to perpetuate lies such as an armed, law abiding populace is a deterrent to criminals. Kind of flies in the face of the fact that nearly every national police force in this country was against these new gun loosening measures and the fact that if you have a gun in your household you are 20 times more likely to die from gun violence. Nothing like being held hostage by a powerful lobby but as the recent arrests in Jersey of some forty-plus local politicians for bribery can attest, all politicians are for sale and usually at bargain prices! Of course, most Americans are more concerned about the latest Erin Andrews video than they are about gun control.

NRA Endorses a New Guns for Terrorists Drive

Just when you think the extremists in the NRA, the National Rifle Association, have hit an new low with their past support for armor piercing bullets and automatic assault weapons they begin a even more preposterous stance by supporting guns for terrorists. You heard right folks. In a letter to the Attorney General NRA executive director Chris Cox said the bill, offered last week by Sen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., “would allow arbitrary denial of Second Amendment rights based on mere ‘suspicions’ of a terrorist threat.”  Hell, they can listen in on all of our private conversations but we can’t take this simple step to protect ourselves?  What the @#$%? We can’t err on the side of caution because some wacko may have to wait a few extra weeks for his assault rifle or explosives?

The NRA has decided that our terrorists threat lists are not sufficient grounds for stopping somebody from buying weapons or explosives. Over the past over 90% of people on the terrorist list have been able to purchase these goodies, not because the list didn’t identify them as possible terrorists, but because there is no federal law preventing them from doing so. Seems the NRA is concerned the terrorist’s  rights maybe crushed by the heavy hand of government and that the list maybe faulty.  Hello, the NRA is right about the legitimacy of the terrorist list, it’s a joke,  but then fix the damn list before more people die will ya ?  Haven’t we spent enough money on Homeland Security to get this right?  Does anybody ever get fired for doing a crap job in the Federal government other than Brownie?

Moreover, that model of moral courage aka the nutless wonders in both the Democratic and Republican parties blocked a vote on a similar bill during the last session. Obama won’t go near this issue either.  Is it me or am I missing something here?  We can argue endlessly about torturing  terrorists but there’s no argument about selling guns or explosives to them?  And no I don’t want ban all guns just the ones going to the terrorists.  Sounds reasonabl but I guess common sense is strangely out of vogue nowadays.
