Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I want to see the NRA shrunk to the size where we can drown it in a bathtub. Namely,

Grover Norquist's bathtub.

FUCK THE NRA.

1. Me too!

Me too!!!!!!!! And soon. It's appalling what I'm reading even here on DU. The name calling by people who want their freaking guns in case they ever want to kill somebody. It's so revolting and sad.

2. Sunday night there was a Twitter storm

we had #NoWayNRA trending for hrs, even made the news.

I really like it there, because, as a collective we can move opinion.

5. OK, I give up. It's time for me to figure out twitter. Can we trend #Repeal the Second Amendment

Is there a Twitter for Dummies guide?

7. We have to make it socially unacceptable to own an arsenal. It's not right to put my family at risk

so that you can enjoy a lethal hobby. Maybe parents and everyone really understand now how one person's selfish, lethal hobby allows their troubled teen to turn into a perfectly equipped killing machine. We've got to make it unpopular and frowned upon to impose these risks upon one's neighbors. Then the NRA will lose members.

More short term, the anti-NRA twitter movement sounds way cool.

8. Good luck with that...

I am betting that the NRA emerges this tragic event with more new dues paying members than all of the gun control groups combined.

4. Excellent idea! Alternate location in case the one you suggest is unavailable...

...may I suggest the bathtub of Wayne LaPierre

6. I didn't know until today that Grover Norquist was on the board of the NRA.

Those right wing nut jobs are an incestuous little group aren't they?

9. It seems to me,

iirc, the NRA, when I was a kid (I am 48) promoted gun SAFETY. They ran kid's classes, taught people how to safely store, clean and maintain them for recreational use. I would like to see them get back to that, if my memory is right.

It seems they went nuts during the Reagan years? Again, my memory might be faulty...and if someone else knows, I wish they would post here.
