Earlier today, the post-Newtown Newtown Action Alliance protested the gun industry’s unwillingness to throw the Second Amendment under the bus. They did so by demonstrating in front of the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s headquarters – at the same time that all the NSSF big wigs (and 60,000 of their closest friends) are attending the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas.
The tightly-gathered-for-the-photo-op group singularly failed to make a fuss in Sin City where the entire NSSF happened to be, choosing instead to make their empty rhetorical points in front of an empty building to empty-headed mainstream media minions.
“We’re asking for them not to aggressively market guns to children and we’re asking for them to stop marketing assault weapons in an aggressive way,” said Dave Stowe. “They also say they want NSSF to join them in aggressively seeking a federal background check for all private gun sales,” wtnh.com added.
What’s with all the aggression? I guess that’s what happens when you’re on the wrong side of an argument with, well, no one.
