America’s Gun Crackpots: Our Homegrown al-Qaeda?

By Joe Lapointe, Open Mike

19 January 13

“We keep hearing that Wayne LaPierre, the fire-breathing mouthpiece for the National Rifle Association, is far more radical than most members of the NRA and that most of them would support common-sense gun safety measures if they could.

Really? How many have stepped up to challenge LaPierre? What are they afraid of? When will they speak up? Will they be on Fox News?

One of them could say that it is vile for LaPierre’s NRA to smear the President’s daughters in an ad filled with gun propaganda and constitutional paranoia and that there is no equivalence between this cheap shot and the President appearing live on stage with sincere school kids who wrote to him about a school-room gun massacre last month and asked him to try to stop the next one and the one after that, too.”
