The NRA has become the Westboro Baptist Church of gun owners, and Wayne LaPierre is their Fred Phelps.

Far more than any labor union, church, or even political party, the NRA has managed take away even the possibility of raising the topic of discussion of any form of gun control.B- Gun Free Zone's "common sense" is America's insanity. Check out the comments and learn that, for GunFreeZone, losing 8 students in a mass shooting is quite acceptable.
