NRA propaganda stifles responsible gun legislation – I don’t think the word “fake” means what he thinks it means . . .
Once upon a time the NRA was a good supporter of sporting firearm owners. It now promotes giving everyone a gun and the opportunity to shoot and kill a person who might appear to threaten the individual. It also is making it possible for anarchists to create arsenals for some future armed revolt by way of their interpretation of the Second Amendment. The NRA has continually spread the propaganda that any type of responsible gun legislation would lead to weapon confiscation. That is the biggest fake news of all.

Buffett should use his tax windfall of $29 billion to buy guns off the street – Marketwatch has lost the plot.
Buffett has pledged to give most of his wealth to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, whose overarching theme is the improvement of public health. Guns kill an estimated 36,000 Americans each year, about 13,000 through homicides and most of the rest through suicides, with accidents playing a smaller role.
Assault rifles are only responsible for a small number of these, but they play an outsized role in driving our conversation about guns, since they are the weapon of choice for mass killings like those in Orlando, Las Vegas, and most recently in Parkland, Fla.
If you want to break gun culture, you would begin with the assault rifles that symbolize the extremism that the National Rifle Association and the far right have embraced in recent years. Over time, maybe background checks, waiting periods and the like would trim the death toll more. It’ll never go to zero, because Americans want legal guns — within limits.
Warren Buffett: I don’t think Berkshire should avoid doing business with people who own guns – Right answer! Obviously . . .
Business leaders should be careful not to impose their personal views on their organizations, billionaire investor Warren Buffett told CNBC on Monday as companies sought to distance themselves from the National Rifle Association after the mass shooting at a high school in Flordia.
Stop sucking up to ‘gun culture.’ Americans who don’t have guns also matter. – You hurt your what?
The punditry charging that one side misunderstands and maligns the other usually flows in one direction: The gun-reform side simply doesn’t grasp, or actively disdains, what really makes the gun-rights side tick. But we hear very little condemnation in the other direction of the constant screams of “gun grabber!” directed at those who believe this problem can be mitigated with appropriate action.
We need a much more forthright acknowledgement in this debate of just how mainstream the latter position really is. It is not just widely held but also represents a set of legitimate values in its own right, and these, too, are strongly held — despite the pretension that only one side’s cultural sensitivities must be treated with great care and delicacy, which is its own form of condescension toward those sensitivities.
