Josh Horwitz on the NRA Hypocrisy

Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right on Huffington Post.
At last week's National Rifle Association (NRA) Annual Meeting in St. Louis, Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) expressed anger about how "lawless individuals are using weapons ill-gotten."
Rep. Issa WASN'T talking about George Zimmerman, who had a track record of domestic abuse and had been arrested for assaulting a cop prior to shooting unarmed teen Trayvon Martin. Instead, Rep. Issa was ranting about his favorite topic: ATF's misguided "Fast and Furious" operation and Attorney General Eric Holder.
I admit I haven't followed the blow-by-blow of the Zimmerman case, pretty much the same way I've had more than enough of the "Fast and Furious" coverage, but this is the first time I've heard about Zimmerman's past record of domestic abuse and having been arrested for assaulting a cop. Wow.
