I thought it would be prudent to pop on over to the NRA website to read the latest ramblings from my sharp shooting brothers.
To my surprise, the website was actually up and running, unlike the days after the shootings in Newtown when they pulled the plug on it and circled the wagons.
Unfortunately for sane individuals, the end result of that hastily called meeting was to arm the teachers. Yeah, that's it, more guns is just what we need.
Wayne LaPierre, the big cheese of the NRA was in rare form, as he wrote a piece titled, "Wayne's Commentary" on the NRA website.
A chill ran down my back as I read his thoughts. It reminded me of some of the dialogue spoken by Jim Jones to his blinded followers many years ago. Mr. Jones was the founder and leader of a group called "The Peoples Temple" and all he did was convince 914 people to simultaneously poison themselves, ending their lives one day in Jonestown, Guyana.
Anyway, good old Wayne was bad mouthing President Obama crying that the President is calling them (extremist gun owners, not be to confused with responsible gun owners with common sense )
names. Mr. LaPierre must have over looked the fact that the NRA just released an advertisement calling the President a "elitist hypocrite."
Here's my problem with his statement. If you are in the public eye and in a position of power like Mr. LaPierre is, I don't think it's responsible or right to disrespect your President by calling him an "elitist hypocrate" on a national stage.
If he wants to do that in a closed NRA meeting with all his buds as they all sit around cleaning their military assault weapons, than that's one thing, but to do it on a national stage I think is reprehensible and just plain wrong.
President Obama wants anyone who chooses to buy a gun, to go through a background check. Seems like an ok idea to me. LaPierre and his extreme followers are acting like the White House is about to start collecting the first born of gun owners. Give me a brake Rambo!!
Dear "they're going to take away all my rights" extremist gun owners. No one wants to take away anything. Some of us just think that the rights of citizens that were written when the people who wrote them were still wearing wigs, need to be upgraded, changed..... amended you might say, to reflect the times.
Law abiding American citizens took to the streets today. I hope it's the start of something great.
