You don't need to look very far to find the racist element of the NRA
I have only been speaking out against gun lobbies for a few months. I am not a well known writer. But opposition to my writings has been enormous. My name has been smeared with fake twitter accounts. Horrible things have been attributed to me. Graphic sexual acts with animals. False allegiances to Adolph Hitler. I have even been painted as a necrophiliac pedophile.
I recently had a hostile debate with a staunch libertarian involving the Second Amendment. The nature of this heated exchange surrounded the idea of whether the citizenry of the US had the explicit right to overthrow their elected government by force of arms.
You are not a bad guy because you own a gun. But if you're fighting for the rights of "bad guys with guns," then you can't call yourself the good guy. Arguments and attitudes need to be reachable on both sides of this issue.
The Texas chapter of Moms Demand Action For Gun Sense in America held their local meeting in a Tex-Mex restaurant. As the moms were eating lunch, members of Open Carry Texas, a "gun rights" organization armed with handguns and assault rifles, and accompanied by children, proceeded to stand in the parking lot and wave their guns around.
