another view of the NRA…

Good morning, Netizens...

This morning's David Horsey cartoon could get interesting as he takes on the National Rifle Association. It seems New York Mayor Bloomberg is pushing Congress to prohibit the illegal sales of guns at gun shows. Although I do not have any statistics to back up my theorem, I believe avidly that more illegal sales of guns, such as to felons, actually take place between private citizens, rather than at gun shows since you do not have any licensing requirements.

Granted the NRA probably has more congressmen under their control than Horsey's cartoon suggests, but all one has to do in order to prove that idea is simply publicly speak out against gun ownership. Then step back a pace and wait for the fury to unfold. People in high places will come screaming out of the cupboards at you, suggesting that you are the direct descendant of daemons, and the root cause of ongoing criminal activities.

Given the sheer hypocrisy with which the Spokane Police Department cross the criminal line, that they recently have committed crimes much the same or worse than those committed by persons they ostensibly pursue, I cannot see where I have much choice than to possess at least one gun, for my own self-protection. In the last five years, upon several occasions, I have had to use a gun to stop armed burglars and various kinds of ilk who were attempting to make off with my property, including two jail birds who were attempting break into my house last winter. So I guess, in an abstract sense, I support the NRA. Times are hard, and ordinarily stable people are becoming increasingly desperate.

However, I did observe in Horsey's cartoon that the bullets in the gun belt are upside down, pointing upward rather than downward. I haven't figured the implications of that out just yet, although there could be a hidden meaning there.

Bloomberg doesn't stand a chance against the NRA.
