I think the NRA is getting bored:
In the April issue of America’s 1st Freedom, one of its magazines, the National Rifle Association declares Secretary of Education Arne Duncan the “most extreme anti-gun member of President Barack Obama’s cabinet.” The NRA is targeting Duncan because, as CEO of Chicago Public Schools, he insisted that children and guns were a dangerous combination. “We’ll keep fighting the NRA, the gun makers, the gun dealers, the gangbangers and everyone else who refuses to accept the undeniable fact that guns and kids don’t mix,” the magazine quotes Duncan as saying when he won an award from the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence. The article then frantically insists that Duncan will use his new position to wreak havoc on the NRA agenda:
You may ask yourself, “What can the secretary of education do to prohibit the rights of law-abiding gun owners?” The begin with, he can incessantly and hysterically use his bully pulpit to promote repressive gun control as an absolute necessity “for the children.” … He can use his position to legitimize, laud and encourage the most vicious gun-haters.
You know, if I were an NRA member I’d be writing a letter right now complaining about wasteful use of my membership fees. I mean really/, the Secretary of Education is the biggest threat to gun safety in this country? The saddest part is that that’s not even the funniest part of the story. I find it hard to believe that the NRA is coming after school officials because for trying to rid schools of guns. Of course this is the same organization that’s supports allowing teachers to pack heat.
Sometimes its hard to take Republicans seriously…
