Michael Kirkland writes in The lost fight for gun control:
The National Rifle Association plans to resort to the democratic process to derail those brave enough to support restrictions on gun or ammo possession, targeting Democratic senators in newspaper ads as they run for re-election in 2014.
“Resort to the democratic process” seems like an odd choice of words. What does he think NRA usually does to those that advocate for laws that violate the Second Amendment? I’m pretty sure I would have heard about it if one or more NRA High-power Rifle teams engaged these Senators violating their oaths of office.
Kirkland labels those advocating restrictions on guns and ammo as “brave” but I’m not convinced. It would seem to me the label would be a lot more appropriate if they were taking incoming fire. Until then I think the more appropriate labels are “weasels” and “criminals“.
