Comedian/pundit Bill Maher posted this image on his Facebook page for one reason: he’s an idiot. Anyone who thinks that the NRA supports terrorists – either intentionally or as an unintentional byproduct of its legislative efforts – lacks basic mental processing power. The National Rifle Association defends Americans’ right to keep and bear arms so that Americans can defend themselves against criminals, terrorists, spree killers and government tyranny. (Not to mention defense against aggressive animals, the importance of hunting or the joys of plinking). Suggesting that the NRA is an ally of degenerate, nihilistic killers diminishes the public’s understanding of the terrorists’ goals, and enables their implementation.
