Those peace loving gun control advocates of the left are threatening the lives of NRA members and the organization’s president.
All decent Americans are heart-sick and outraged over the Newtown, Conn. school massacre. But some citizens have completely lost their heads and souls. On Twitter, there’s a growing proliferation of sickos calling for NRA president David Keene and anyone else who belongs to the gun-rights organization to be shot.
They’re being egged on by Democrats like Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) who called the NRA “enablers of mass murder.” Our side could say the same about the media and Hollywood, but you don’t hear us calling for their deaths.
Phineas at Sister Toldjah also weighed in:
Fellow Californian Kurt Schlichter says “Sure, let’s have that conversation about guns.” It is must-reading. Contrary to popular gun-control fantasies, research shows mass shootings are not on the rise. And there is some evidence that both violence and gun ownership are on the decline in the US. Dana Loesch looks at Sandy Hook and other recent mass-killings and argues why gun-control is not the answer. Australia’s Tim Blair argues that more guns means fewer deaths. Finally, Glenn Reynolds has a series of excellent questions for gun-control advocates. My two favorites:
If you’re a media member or politician, do you have armed security? Do you have a permit for a gun yourself? (I’m asking you Dianne Feinstein!) If so, what makes your life more valuable than other people’s?
Have you talked about “Fast and Furious?” Do you even know what it is? Do you care less when brown people die?
Can’t wait for the answers.
I won’t hold my breath waiting for those answers.
Oh, and Katie Pavlich at TownHall notes that the NRA does not stand for gun violence.
It should be pointed out the NRA promotes respect for, proper use of and provides proper training for those handling firearms.
The left will never admit that. They’re too busy promoting violence.
