    There are few better ways of grasping how far the Republicans have abandoned the middle ground, where they used to win elections, than the way their leaders have become agents of the gun industry. Conservatives used to consider themselves law-abiding citizens who put great store by the permanence of institutions, by the rule of law, and by the traditional caution and common sense of the sensible majority. Such devotion to stability, continuation, and moderation explains why so many conservatives were alarmed when the social revolution of the Sixties erupted. Suddenly, it seemed, everything was on the move. Children no longer believed in the wisdom of their elders, nor obeyed the unwritten rules that had guided every previous generation. The days of everyone knowing their place and remaining in it were overthrown and it appeared that anarchy had broken out in America.

    The Republican Establishment that has given Obama EVERYTHING he wanted has been hijacked by the NRA?
    NiGGa PuhleeZ!

    Liberal democrats have a penchant for saying some really stupid shit that has no basis in reality.
    It gets worse when the anti-gunners have to get a lefty teabag to do it.

    Gallup’s latest poll finds the much-demonized National Rifle Association with far higher approval ratings than two of its most prominent assailants: President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The NRA had a 58 percent approval rating, far higher than Obama’s 45 percent or Clinton’s 41 percent

    OP is the head of her local chapter of that Bloomberg organization's anti-gun group (Mothers Against Illegal Guns or something like that?)

    Completely serious.
