LaPierre's Hillary Rant: Since When Is Being Cheated on a Character Flaw?

Andy Ostroy | Posted 04.13.2015 | Politics

Most offensive in LaPierre's insensitive, ignorant diatribe is that in these instances Hillary Clinton was the victim. Since when do we ridicule and punish victims for the actions of those who violate them?

It has been a week since Ismaayl Brinsley, a deranged man with a long criminal record, killed two New York City police officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, in cold blood, but so far we haven't heard a word from the National Rifle Association.

The Racial Double Standard on Gun Violence

Josh Horwitz

The NRA fully understands the racial dynamic at play here. As long as we can blame something other than guns, America will not have to come to terms with the truth that violence is a complicated phenomenon that is made far more lethal by the easy availability and killing power of firearms.

There are thirty gun deaths a day in America. I ache when I consider how many lives have been lost and ruined over senseless perverted NRA interpretations to the right to keep and bear arms.

To hear the NRA and its allies tell it, about the only thing keeping this country from criminal chaos is those good guys with the guns. The trouble is that isn't true.

We are a society at war with ourselves as well as with much of the world. Gun control in various forms may contain that war, but only a shift in consciousness will end it. That shift must include the realization that power requires more than the means to point, shoot, kill.

Josh Horwitz | Posted 04.15.2014 | Politics
Josh Horwitz

The opinion of the pro-gun movement seems to be that the guy with the gun is always right, no matter what the facts of the case are; that gun possession makes you a super-citizen with enhanced rights to take life, avoid prosecution, and use lethal force in response to non-lethal force.

Rep. Leslie Combs, as the news reports, 'accidentally fired her handgun in her Capitol Annex office Tuesday...' Part of her initial response has rightly caused anger and outrage. In her words, 'Like I said, I am a gun owner... it happens.' Exactly. And too often.

How many are "enough?" How many "good guys?" How many guns? Indeed, there will never be enough "good guys with guns" for LaPierre's taste, chiefly because the NRA's sole mission is to sell as many guns as they can.
