NRA “Hypocrite”

Link 01B Logo 01A

Synopsis: The National Rifle Association attempts to bolster its public image by using a well-liked president’s children to advance the argument that the most nurturing environment for young kids is a country in which they are surrounded by guns at all times.

  1. Welcome back. I guess this gem was the catalyst to coax you out of retirement.

    1. Thanks, man. Nice to know I've still got a few fans out there.

    2. You're going to pick up more. I've never been to this site, it is hysterical. Love it, sending you on to all my facebook buds. I have to reply as anonymous because I don't see anything else that fits. Where's facebook?

  2. It sort of bothers me that people like this can't see the obvious flaw in their argument: Obama has armed guards watching over his children because he needs to protect them from the crazy people who have unfettered access to guns and an overweening need to blaze away at anyone who displeases them.

  3. Yay! The Editor (he/she/it/they?) is BACK!
    The internet is a slightly brighter and more snarky place, and I am thankful :)

  4. "Are they President's kids more important than yours?"

    I had the same thought. "Um, yeah, they sorta are."
    Sorry. If YOUR kids get kidnapped, no one has gained emotional leverage over the keeper of the world's largest nuclear arsenal. So yes, they may be precious snowflakes to you, but no one else cares. The world is a cold and heartless place, enjoy your stay.

  5. Our most decorated marksmen, Audie Murphy, Alvin York, etc. learned to shoot as youngsters - not in six weeks of boot camp. NRA was formed to create a civilian force of marksmen to protect this country from enemies foreign and domestic. NRA teaches firearm safety to youth via the Eddie Eagle program.

    1. Is an NRA member who sprays a TEC-9 at water jugs sitting on rusting appliances in his backyard considered a "marksman" ?

      What the NRA was formed to do and what it does now are two very different things. Today's NRA counts the federal government -- and any state or local government that enforces a law it doesn't like -- among its "enemies." And many of those bright-eyed Eddie Eagle grads will end up accidentally or intentionally shooting themselves, their friends, or a member of their family.

    2. "many"? Sorry I'm sure you mean well but that's got to be one of the dumbest things I've heard all day. There are over 100 million legal gun owners. If even 1% were as dumb and reckless as you seem to think they are, entire cities worth of people would be wiped off the map from "accidents". Has that happened? Not even close. You should really think before you speak. You have the right not to, but that doesn't make it a good idea

    3. I don't think a person has to be "dumb and reckless" to misuse an inherently dangerous weapon. The fact that a majority of gun owners, by vigilance or sheer luck, are able to avoid tragedy may make you feel better about the spate of accidental shootings and gun-facilitated suicides that occurs in the U.S. year after year, but it doesn't do much for me.

    1. Actually, Anonymous, it appears that you're the one with a little extra time on your hands.

      I suppose it would be too facile to add, "Well regulated militia."

  9. If you are so scared of other people that you want to tell them what they can and cannot do, you should just go build a cabin in the woods and not bother anyone...oh, but then you'll have to overcome your fear of guns to find food for yourself!

    1. I thought NRA members were more "cabin in the woods" kind of people.

  11. Truly, this is disgusting. Even with a massive outpouring of awareness and safety campaigns, there doesn't seem to be a solution in sight. My heart goes out to the striking groundskeepers of America's lawns who quietly and internally suffer and squirm at the knowledge that thousands of acres of once trimmed and neat lawns are now a veritable knee-high forest of weeds because of the stubbornness of the Department of Education. When will the madness end?
