27. But the NRA buys them from gun-controllers, Hoyt. Why is that?
I imagine because they sell their members and a lot of peripheral supporters on the notion that MSM's views on guns is hostile and representative of "liberal" causes and lifestyles. And it works, for them.

Chuck E Cheeze? If I'm going to put my arteries off-line for a couple of hours, I'd rather eat baby-back ribs. And Chuck-E-Cheeze won't let me in the door with my gun-laden wheel barrow.
