God damn it.

I’m no fan of the NRA, but I do lean to the side of gun owners rights.

The NRA had an opportunity here to be sympathetic, to humanize itself a little, maybe bridge a few gaps, maybe- JUST MAYBE, admit that perhaps tactical AR weapons with massive clips aren’t TOTALLY NECESSARY for personal protection.

But nope, they chose to just shut their eyes and double down on their crazy, paranoid worldview.

Of course.  

2012, you guys.  It’s the year of “You’re either with us or against us, and there is no common ground.”
