Gun control advocates aren’t triskaidekaphobes. They slavishly adhere to Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals rule number 13: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” The target in question: the National Rifle Association . . .
In the post-Parkland anti-gun hysteria, the NRA is the bad guy. Why? Because there has to be a bad guy — other than the real bad guy — to convince Americans to surrender their guns.
And hey! The NRA blocked — and continues to block — an “assault weapons” ban. Like the one in place when the Columbine high school shooters shot and killed 12 students and one teacher with an Intratec TEC-DC9, a Hi-Point 995 Carbine and two shotguns.
Anyway . . .
I’ve given the NRA sh*t about their support for an ATF ruling banning bump fire stocks and staying stum in the immediate aftermath of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre (including not taking the Broward County Sheriff to task for failing to prevent the killing or intervene effectively when it started).
But bump fire stock ban and Fix NICS misegos aside, it looks like the NRA’s behind-the-scenes Congressional machinations and their I’m-ADD-as-Hell-and-I’m-not-taking-it-anymore boy Trump have nixed new federal gun control laws. NRA…winning?
