Netroots sets sight on NRA
Story here. Samples:
The NRA isn’t [just] selling guns, they’re selling fear and mistrust of government,” Mark Glaze, director of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, said Friday...
“The NRA is selling fear, mainly fear of government,” echoed Matt Gertz, deputy research director at Media Matters for America....
Hmmm... I wonder if that was quite the message they wanted to be going out with, in the wake of the NSA and IRS revelations of the last month.
Here's an interesting contrast.
The NRA sells guns?

The NRA sells fear and mistrust of the government by working with the legislative branch of the government on behalf of its members to draft laws? Really?
The NRA sells fear and mistrust of the government by filing lawsuits through the legal channels provided by the judicial branch of the government to seek relief under the law on behalf of its members? Is that it?
Ooh, I got it - the NRA sells fear and mistrust of the government when it advocates that the government enforce existing laws regarding firearms. That's it, right?

"We have always been at war with East Anglia."
- George Orwell, _1984_
To the extent the NRA stands in the way of the unlimited expansion of authoritarian government, it must be destroyed.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
(Some people get hung up on dependent clauses and don't understand the full meaning."
