Scary NRA out of touch with reality

You have got to be kidding me!

More guns?

Really? More guns?

Is this what the NRA has to offer to the discussion? Frightening. I am truly frightened. For my country, for my children, for myself and my community.

Is this all the NRA can offer to the discussion? If so, it is time to disqualify them from the table of conversation and the position of power they so unfortunately yield in our society today. The NRA is an outdated, out-of-touch-with-reality organization from a different time and place. Run predominantly by “Old White Guys,” it is a generation who has seen it’s time and no longer represents responsible gun ownership. It is a generation that needs to pass. It is neither the greatest generation or a meaningful generation. It is only the generation about gun ownership … any and all gun ownership.

Really? More guns?
