"The annual festival of conspiracy theorizing,
belligerent fist-shaking and anxious masculinity known as the National Rifle
Association convention came to Houston over the weekend, and it was everything
the organizers hoped it would be."
-Paul Waldman, CNN
"How many Bostonians wished they had a gun two weeks ago?"
-Wayne LaPierre, Executive vice-president of the NRA
How many Bostonians wish they could knock Wayne LaPierre's teeth out? I wonder....
The faithful descended upon Houston, thousands of "real 'mericans", to gleefully partake in the annual NRA/GOP festival of love - and fear. Wayne LaPierre stood at the podium doing what Wayne LaPierre does better than anyone; cranking-up the masses with some deadly imagery that left them thirsty for blood:
"Lying in wait right now is a terrorist, a deranged school shooter, a
kidnapper, a rapist, a murderer, waiting and planning and plotting in
every community across our country, lying in wait right now."

The multitudes gathered at the National Rifle Association convention this past weekend absorbed every paranoid word like diseased sponges. These were the true believers. These were the people whose mission in life was to save this grand and glorious land of ours from the leftist hoards of bloodthirsty bleeding-hearts and their dark-skinned, Marxist leader. It was truly a great hour to be a citizen of the good ol' U.S. of A. EVERYBODY SING! Oh, I wish I was in Dixie - hooray! hooray!
Indeed. The answer to all of our problems - at least according to the clowns speaking at this hootenanny - is not that firearms be "well regulated" as stated in the Second Amendment (which they habitually quote out of context). The answer to all of our woes is simply more guns - lots 'n' lots of 'em! You see, that is the only way we'll be able to take on the federal government - blow the bastards straight to the pit of hell - on the day (which is surely coming) when the tanks come rolling down thousands of Main Streets to kill us all. QUICK! FETCH MY AMMO BOX, ESTER!
Shoot to kill first. Leave the questions to Saint Peter.
One gun in particular was quite evident at this year's NRA scream-a-thon - on exhibit and for sale - the AR-15. This was is the rapid-fire, people-killing machine that was used by the homicidal little dingbat (who shall forevermore remain nameless on this site) to murder twenty little boys and girls and the six women whose job it was to protect and educate them on December 14, 2012. I'm sure that's just a coincidence, though - NUDGE! NUDGE! WINK! WINK! SAY NO MORE! KNOW WHAT I MEAN? KNOW WHAT I MEAN?
By the way, here's one for the joke books: the new president of the National Rifle Association is some beer-bellied twit named Jim Porter. This asshole still refers to the Civil War as "the War of Northern Aggression". Just a wee-bit out of touch with the times, don'cha think?
As might be expected, Sarah Palin was there. Although it is agreed among reasonable people these days that Fascist Barbie is pretty much irrelevant to our national dialogue, among the insanity junkies whose job it is to organize these NRA freak-shows, her star is still on the rise. Kinda makes you wonder, huh?
She criticized President Obama for using the grieving families of the Newtown victims as "backdrops" in order to appeal to our emotions. I guess it never occurred to this brain-damaged bitch that these poor people are willing participants in these media events, that they might want to prevent the unspeakable tragedy that imploded their lives in December from being visited upon other mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters. Fuck her. And speaking of irrelevance:

"The freedom of all mankind - make no mistake - is at stake. And because of this I truly believe that our souls are at stake as well."
"Freedom"? Really??? How "free" do you feel? Free as a bird? That's perfectly understandable if you've never had someone you loved dearly killed by gunfire. I have. I wonder how many of the parents of the kids murdered in Newtown didn't give a rat's ass about the "gun issue" prior to December 14, 2012. I don't know the answer to that question. What I know beyond a shadow of a doubt is that they care now. They care very much. You will, too, if and when it happens to you. And as we continue down this idiotic road, the chances are getting better by the day that it will indeed happen to someone you love - or to you - or to me (YIKES!).
NOTE TO EUROPEAN TRAVEL AGENCIES:
You might want to issue a little "travel advisory" to your clientele who plan on vacationing in the "land of the free". There are certain states in this warped nation that are just too dangerous to visit. Here's a list of the top ten places to avoid:

7. New Mexico
Just thought I'd give you that little heads-up.
Interestingly (though hardly coincidentally) all of the states listed above are so-called "red states". The ten safest places to live are in blue states. Here's another fun fact to chew on: The state of the union with the lowest rate of murders via firearms (by far) is Hawaii. You don't need to be a genius to figure out the reason behind this. First of all, the Aloha state has very sane and reasonable gun laws. Secondly, it is impossible do drive across state lines to plant an illegal gun in Hawaii. Isn't that wonderful?
Four months ago on the day after the massacre of innocents in Newtown, Connecticut, I predicted on this site that, in spite of the carnage, nothing would change. Nothing has. Nothing will. Get used to living in a nation in ruins.
