Brought To You By Your Friendly GOP Congressman: The NRA Kills Again


Our once-a-day essays are created on the spur of the moment as we see what news dominates the morning, and deaths and injuries by gunshot fill our boxes every morning.

With the NRA's phony interpretation that the Second Amendment is not a conditional clause in the Constitution, coupled with a whole lot of money given to Conservative shills in Congress, the shootings go on and innocent American men, women, and children get Second Amendmented to death by people who should never own guns in the first place...let's see what stories were on the internet today...

"Driver Second Amendmented to Death in Houston Road-Rage Incident."



"This particular crime could not have been committed with a samurai sword. It couldn’t have happened with a piece of rope, a baseball bat, a sharpened stick or a rock — only supersonic lead would do.


"In Houston Texas, at 12:30 a.m., 22-year-old Aaron James Francis and two passengers were eating in Aaron’s car at a strip mall. Not knowing it would be his last meal, Aaron pulled out of the shopping center and into the street, where a second car cut him off..."

And...

"Jealous hubby ambushes, kills estranged wife, new beau on rural Kentucky road: police."



"Shaun Hiles, 35, turned the gun on himself but failed to kill himself with two self-inflicted gunshot wounds after he slaughtered Nicole Hiles, 35, and Larry Whiteker, 32, in a hail of gunfire late Monday night. Nicole Hiles had filed for an emergency order of protection against her estranged husband, whom her father described as 'a control freak.'.."

And...

"Yet Another Man With a Gun Just Murdered His Wife and Children."

"In Saco, Maine on Saturday night, 33-year-old Joel Smith used a pump-action shotgun to kill his 35-year-old wife, Heather Smith, his 12-year-old stepson, and the couple's two biological children, a 7-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl, before turning the gun on himself. The horrific scene was discovered on Sunday morning after a concerned family friend called the apartment complex where the Smith family lived and asked a maintenance worker to check on them. In a statement to the media, a Maine State Police official called the mass shooting "one of the worst cases of domestic violence in Maine's history..."

Of course, that wasn't a Good Guy with a gun...dive for cover!!!

"Cop Loses Robber After Good Guy With Gun Tries To Help, Shoots Wildly Towards Him."

"A man with a concealed carry permit thought he could help when he observed a foot chase between a police officer and a suspected armed robber. The man began opening fire at the robber, but bullets flew everywhere, prompting the officer to break off the chase and dive for cover. Thanks, good guy with a gun!

"When questioned afterwards, the man said he was about to enter an AT&T store in a suburb of Chicago when he noticed the place was being robbed. He stayed outside and made sure no one else entered (good), observed the suspect as he fled out the back of the store (good), then pulled out his licensed gun and decided to shoot the suspect (no!)..."

There were five or six other reports of shootings today, but let's see what our friends at the NRA have to say about a gun control bill and the Holocaust...

"NRA Lobbyist Belittles Any Jew Who Backs Gun Control Because The Holocaust."



"Brian Judy, a senior state lobbyist for the National Rifle Association, compared supporting gun control to paving the way for the Holocaust last week.

"His particular target: venture capitalist Nick Hanauer, who is affiliated with the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility and has supported a Washington state gun control initiative. Hanauer has said his family fled Germany to escape the Nazis..."

And finally, what is the NRA Poster Boy up to?

"What Could Go Wrong? George Zimmerman Now ‘Patrolling’ FL. Gun Store At Night Looking For Burglars."



"The very last time George Zimmerman patrolled an area to help prevent property crimes, he ended up shooting an unarmed 17-year-old boy to death. Apparently, he hasn’t lost the itch.

"Aside from his occasional arrests for violent and troubling behavior, Zimmerman has been keeping a pretty low profile after his acquittal for the aforementioned murder. He recently surfaced during his divorce proceedings only to claim that he was dead broke, homeless, and traveling a lot. He also admitted to still owning five guns, including a shotgun that he bought after his trial. Now, he is reportedly doing a voluntary stint as a security guard for a Florida gun store..."

********************


As the representative of gun owners, the NRA pumplts millions of the owners' money into the pockets of Conservative pols.  And the pols pump their insidious propaganda into our eyes and ears.

The result?  These merchants of death are directly responsible for countless injuries and death of innocents every single day of the year.

Criminalize Conservatism and make the merchants of death pay for a nation-wide campaign to tell us the truth about the Second Amendment and why it was put into the Constitution as the only conditional provision in the Constitution - not to defend ourselves from imaginary tyrants, but to arm the militia (read: the Natonal  Guard).

"A heinous act of mass murder—either by terrorists or by some psychotic who
should have been locked up long ago—will be the pretext to unleash a tsunami of
gun control."

Wayne LaPierre, NRA Executive Vice President.
