Perhaps it’s time the NRA left America’s kids alone.



This comes on the news a few weeks ago that the NRA launched a shoot-em-up iPhone app, geared at kids as young as four years of age, only three weeks after the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre in which 20 six- and seven- year-old children were shot dead, three times each child, by a fan of the Second Amendment.

We also uncovered that the iPhone app wasn’t simply a pro-gun toy, it was actually a clandestine propaganda machine, feeding kids biased “news” about guns that, by coincidence of course, blasted only Democrats.

Perhaps it’s time the NRA left America’s kids alone.

1. It's disingenuous to say that Lanza was

"a fan of the Second Amendment".

You know. A tool.

4. You're right

 

It would be more correct to say that Lanza was a fan of the misinterpretation of the 2nd Amendment that the Delicate Flowers slaver over.

6. Well if we are going in that direction...

...I would say he was a beneficiary of the NRA's policies. To say he was a fan of anything is ridiculous.
What do we even know about this guy?

7. Antics with semantics

I'm making the rather obvious jump from "beneficiary" to "fan". Generally somebody that is a beneficiary of a policy is also a fan, but I suppose there might be pathological exceptions.

5. I wish Aravosis left Lanza out out his post.

Aravosis loses the gun control debate in this post with such hyperbole. We simply don't know or have proof that Lanza was a fan of the second amendment.

The focus should be that the Gun manufacturing Lobby is trying to sell bibs and t-shirts to infants and toddlers. That is wretched.
