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.
