NRA - RAT - Real American Terrorists 9
Barry, My Liege :
The National Rifle Association, NRA, and its Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre earn their designations as RATs [Real American Terrorists] by their profiting from the death of innocent Americans.
It is an organization in which its sponsors make money from the deaths of Americans.
Here is a link to some of their corporate sponsors : http://www.friendsofnra.org/corporate-sponsors.aspx
My Liege, I live in an American city where I hear automatic weapon fire almost every night, sometimes close and sometimes far away. Last week in my city two 15 year old girls were shot to death on the street in the early morning hours by automatic weapon fire to their faces and then their backs as they crawled away to die.
Occasionally I see the cars of the shooters fleeing a recent murder. It is usually at least two cars. I don't know if they are running away from the police or the associates of the people they shot. They are most likely running away from their victim's associates since my city is short of police by about 40%.
Into this situation, Mr. LaPierre and his backers sell military grade weapons with occasionally zero restrictions or background checks if the weapons are bought at 'gun shows'.
The NRA is funded by gun makers. It's sole purpose is to reduce restrictions on weapon sales.
Their rhetoric about the Constitution and hunting is simply part of a shell game. Their is no Constitutional right to military style weapons in a private home and legitimate hunters do not need .50 caliber machine guns to kill deer.
This is madness.
My Liege, I agree with you that it is time to stop it.
Some Americans may wish to express their anguish about gun violence in their community.
