    The National Rifle Association and Stupid People

    By on May 25, 2022 in See It Here

    Whenever there’s a school shooting (and there have been a lot) or a mass shooting at a store or movie theater (and there have been many), there will be legislators on the radio and TV saying gun laws need to be tightened.

    And that brings in the legislators to instruct us all on the 2nd Amendment.
    We’re fortunate to have all this available advice when something bad happens. I’m not sure when the 39 signers of the Bill of Rights in 1789 gathered in Philly, that there was an AR-15 assault rifle, but I get the gist of what they were thinking.
    From the Department of Not Pointing Fingers (DNPF), the National Rifle Association should discuss this at their Houston Convention in late May. Heck, it’s a few hours away from the most recent shooting that killed 19 elementary school kids so they oughta gather there.
    The NRA is always quiet when the outrage about guns occurs.
    Here’s a suggestion and it’s so obvious, one would think even an NRA “expert” would have thought to do this:
    Make a short statement via Facebook and Twitter where all the noise occurs after a shooting by an idiot and list the NRA practices that weren’t followed (registration, buying illegally, age, keeping the weapon away from children) and show us how this couldn’t have happened if….
    I tried sending this to the NRA but my idea wasn’t accepted saying the address where I’ve lived for ten years isn’t valid.
    It will be a wonderful convention anyway.
