"The National Rifle Association of America is made up of over 4 million moms and dads, daughters and sons, who are involved in the national conversation about how to prevent a tragedy like Newtown from ever happening again. We attended today's White House meeting to discuss how to keep our children safe and were prepared to have a meaningful conversation about school safety, mental health issues, the marketing of violence to our kids and the collapse of federal prosecutions of violent criminals," reads the NRA statement.Similar to how NASA's main mission is Muslim Outreach, the NRA's main mission now must be "keeping our children safe".
And their membership rose 100,000 in the wake of Sandy Hook!?
I am reminded of that great line in the movie Patton where General Bradley is telling him that he has to divert some gas up to Field Marshal Suuuuh Bernard Law Montgomery. Patton says, "You give me those resources and I'll make our schools safe, I'll go after mental health issues, the marketing of violence and the collapse of federal prosecutions of violent criminals!"
No, actually he said, "You give me that gas and I'll gain ground with it-I'll kill Germans with it."
"We were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the Second Amendment. While claiming that no policy proposals would be “prejudged,” this Task Force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearms owners - honest, taxpaying, hardworking Americans. It is unfortunate that this Administration continues to insist on pushing failed solutions to our nation's most pressing problems. We will not allow law-abiding gun owners to be blamed for the acts of criminals and madmen.Uh...yeah. You knew that going in Wayne.
|The Second Amendment is MINE!|
You're the Steward of Gondor. As Steward, you're charged with the defense of Gondor. Where are Gondor's armies? Sorry. Let me fix that.
You're supposed to be this Steward of the Second Amendment. As Steward, you're charged with the defense of the Second Amendment. So where in all that talk about school safety and mental health BS is there anything about the defense of the Second Amendment!?
Like Denethor, I think Wayne continues to gaze into the Palantir even though it is the enemy who controls what gets broadcast.

"...we will now take our commitment and meaningful contributions to members of congress of both parties who are interested in having an honest conversation about what works - and what does not."
At the end of the movie Zoolander, male supermodel Derek Zoolander founds, The Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can't Read Good and Wanna Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too. Wayne, could you please go off and found the National Keep Our Children and Schools Safe and Mental Health Issues and The Marketing of Violence and Federal Prosecution Of Violent Criminals Association? Seriously. You have a burning passion for this, so go for it.
|Wayne The Pierre burns with passion!|
