1. Like the tobacco lobby

When cigs sales fell they went after the children and international sales. The gun sales for hunting were falling and so now they are going for children and ginning up the conspiracy paranoia sales. Seems to be working.

"You know--for kids."

11. Did you know guys like George Bush, Sr, Norman Schwarzkkpf, and other prominent

 

Republicans quit the NRA years ago when they supported killing federal agents.

Some company you keep with the NRA if it's too extreme for a Republican like George HW Bush?

13. Bill Moyers has had multiple books, columns, television specials.

I've actually heard the man speak in person and he is quite well-versed.

And you, on the other hand--well you provide us with a well-worn cliche and not much else.

Safe to say I'll gladly take his opinion on most anything over yours.
