The NRA is just plain nuts.
This guy starts out by telling us how the government sets
education policy, access to public parks, labor policies to protect minorities, and then springs his case on us: we should treat guns the same way. We need guns. We ought to treat them like food, shelter, education, and voting — wonderful things that the government ought to subsidize. So later he even suggests that the government ought to provide free shooting ranges, and a yearly allotment of free ammunition.
Further, progress through the school system ought to require gun training. Why? Because we need guns.
No, we don’t. We need jobs, we need shelter, we need education, we need food, we need clean water, but hell no, we don’t need guns. He says that our gun policy is
designed around the assumption that we need to protect people from guns, that guns are bad or dangerous…exactly right. I want to be protected from guns. I’d rather not have to worry about some freak with an automatic rifle when I walk to the grocery store; guns are bad, since they’re tools for killing people; and oh man, guns are dangerous.
But this fool says,
What if instead of gun-free zones, we had gun-required zones. No thank you.
He also says,
Sound crazy? Think about it.
OK. I thought about it. It’s utterly insane. The NRA is a festering cesspool of batshit lunacy.
