When prowling the web for gun stories or clicking on links from TTAG tipsters, I don’t always know the physical location of a relevant website. The East Valley Tribune could hail from a hundred places. When I clocked the headline above one of the paper’s editorials – NRA – America’s greatest domestic terrorist – I figured the valley in question nestled somewhere in anti-gun New England or the equally firearms freedom averse Mid-Atlantic region. Nope . . .
The EVT provides residents of Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Tempe and Queen Creek Arizona with the news.
Which just goes to show that liberal papers still provide poison to readers deep in American flyover country. For now. But not forever, if they publish writers who spew anti-ballistic bile, like former high school English teacher Mike McClellan.
When the latest mass shooting took place in Oregon (on of the 74 school shootings since the Sandy Hook tragedy), it becomes clear who the most dangerous domestic terrorist is in America.
And I don’t say that lightly.
Over the last twenty years or so, the NRA has made sure that America has become weaponized America . . .
The leadership of the NRA clearly traffics in terrorism.
They terrorize Americans with ridiculous claims that any gun legislation is an attempt to “take away your guns.” And it works, as we know, because every time a horror like Oregon happens, guns sales go up, in part, because the NRA’s reflexive response iOS to warn gun owners of an impending gun confiscation by the government. Which, of course, never happens.
So the terrorists succeed in two ways: They inspire Americans to fear our government, and the increase arms sales.
It’s not this screed’s substance that galls. McClellan’s making the same points that gun control advocates have been making since they decided to follow Saul Alinsky’s advice to “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” But the antis’ increasing use of the “t” word when referring to the NRA is worrying. As is the tone of their accusatory diatribes.
The National Rifle Association has ensured that getting a gun, a powerful gun at that, and the most dangerous bullets, is easy.
The national organization has ensured that mass murders, along with the everyday voluminous murders, that happen in our cities, continue.
The NRA has ensured that the insane and cold-blooded can find their weapons of choice to terrorize the innocent.
Shame on them. Shame on the politicians who cower to them,. And shame on us for letting those domestic terrorists have power over us.
The thing of this is, I could easily imagine these words coming out of President Hillary Clinton’s mouth, and the bloody aftermath that results. There’s your terror.
