Nicely done.

Bravo.

This mountain of crap from the NRA is so egregious that I think pretty strong conclusions can be derived from it.

1) They can't possibly believe their own bullshit. It's as bad as a creationist screed in terms of lying, distorting facts etc.

2) The product being sold is fear. For the purposes of generating fear, random mass shootings are highly desirable. Therefore, it is not a problem that the NRA's proposals would do nothing to help (and would most likely make the problem worse). It is a feature.

3) This is an evil proposal by evil people who want to implement evil policy using dead children as props.

(in case it isn't clear, I've been doing a slow burn about the NRA presser all day...)

I'm damn glad I left the NRA in the 90s if I hadn't I sure would have cut my card up today.

Good for you. Sane people clearly need to leave the NRA.

I left the NRA in 1993, two years after Wayne took over, I just couldn't stand the conspiracy theory bullshit he was pushing anymore. I don't care how many times he said it, I never believed that Clinton and the UN blue helmets were going to come take my guns. It turned out that I was right in the end too.

Well said. Well put. Well done. The NRA is looking to the government to protect us from their very own customers.

One of my chat buddies from another weblog told me that he did not get any broadcast emails from the NRA for a week. Clearly they are afraid of what their members might say or do.

Why doesn't Wayne care about people who go the theaters or malls? Can't we get our own NRA approved program and logo too?

Great job--excellent Page & commentary.

Man, that is a great commentary on the BS I heard from the NRA. Where is responsible leadership? Hey Heston, I'm talking to you.

Russ Campbell’s Blog: Bill C-23, Fair Elections Act Seems Now on Solid Ground
Now that a Sen­ate com­mit­tee has rec­om­mended nine changes to Bill C-23, Fair Elec­tions Act, the leg­is­la­tion seems pretty solid. And, since Pierre Poilievre has, ap­par­ently, in­di­cated pri­vately that he's open to changes, an amended ver­sion of the bill will likely be­come law by this sum­mer. We would prob­a­bly have got­ten to this point ear­lier had not the min­is­ter re­spon­si­ble for the bill ...

Why the Temperature of the Yellow Sea Is a Big Deal, and Other Questions About the South Korean Ferry Disaster
The boat ran into trouble several dozen miles from Jindo, an island that sticks out of South Korea's southwestern corner like a little toe. Jindo is surrounded by a group of even smaller islands that are slightly farther afield from the mainland. The ferry was curving around those small islands at the time it issued a distress call. What caused the disaster? We ...

The Insane History of Rockets at Jet Propulsion Laboratories

Unwilling to give up on the joy of semi-controlled explosions, the students and a few of their friends headed into the San Gabriel Mountains. They picked a deserted gully -- Arroyo Seco -- ...
