Sally Kalson on the NRA Convention

Acres of guns, annals of agonyThe NRA makes sure future criminals can arm themselves to the teethSunday, May 01, 2011By Sally Kalson, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The National Rifle Association has been holding its annual meeting in Pittsburgh for the past few days, heralded with billboards promising "acres of guns and gear."
Here's a billboard you didn't see, but would have if the group was honest about its mission to paint even the most sensible gun laws as a step toward tyranny: "The NRA: Because if Richard Poplawski can't have an arsenal, neither can you."
What's your opinion? Is she saying there actually was a sign saying that about Poplawski, or that this is what describes the NRA position? Either way, I agree with Sally's take on it. The NRA is pushing misery and suffering.
What's your opinion? Please leave a comment.
