12. Doesn't surprise me a bit: there is so much hateful venom among the ranks of the "RKBA enthusiasts"
that when they get together it just sort of spews out of their mouths, like a big huge collective shit-volcano.
You see, the "RKBA" movement is largely made up of the racists and reactionaries who left the Democratic party after Nixon's "southern strategy" (which was aimed at the entire country, not just the South) effectively lured the folks who used to support Jim Crow into the Republican Party.
But there was a problem! Jim Crow support was no longer publicly acceptable, so that crowd had to find themselves a new issue to latch onto. Some went into the anti-choice movement; some became "anti-feminists" and fought the ERA and women's rights; the vast majority, however, joined the NRA and suddenly discovered they were "RKBA enthusiasts."
It is this crowd that spews these kind of ugly things about Representative McCarthy and other Democratic politicians who have the courage and vision to stand up to the gun lobby.
It's been fun, folks. But when the umpire openly declares support for one team on the field - and also decides to publicly play fast, loose, & coy with the batting score as a manifestation of that support - it's time to move on. I wish nothing but the best for you all, friend & foe alike. Take care, stay cool, and drink one for me every once in a while. You folks are the best.
