Good friend and colleague, Professor Gordon Ourside, has done a comprehensive study of the NRA's rationale for unlimited gun rights on the assumption that there must be something more substantial, more intelligent and more socially responsible than the tripe about "fighting tyranny" and Second Amendment absolutism that spokesman Wayne LaPierre has been spewing in recent months. Well, that assumption was wrong.
Here, then, is Professor Ourside's report, delivered in verse, which probes the full depth of the NRA's "thinking" and distils the essence of the NRA position on the issue of gun rights, as wholeheartedly embraced by today's Republican leadership, the folks who recently defeated a bill to require background checks on individuals buying guns to protect their Constitutional rights against the "big government" which they say can't protect us against bad guys with guns. Makes perfect sense, right?.
Like they say, guns don't kill people, people do. But guns sure help them kill a lot more people, a lot faster and with much less risk to the killer plus a hell of a lot more risk to the police who Wayne LaPierre said can't protect us from the bad guys.
