A stereotype that gun owners are enabling

Subject: Regarding three-legged pigs, Federal arsonists, and their journalist enablers who want to give them more gasoline and matches.
Your anti-firearm rights editorial about the three-legged pig was cute and more sophisticated than most, although the trick of divide and conquer is as old as the hills. You write:
Not only is the NRA saying that you have an unfettered right to buy these guns in bulk without the kind of transparency the feds are newly requiring, they are saying that folks have the right to sell them. This is just the latest evidence that the NRA and the gun-manufacturing industry are locked in a loving embrace that threatens to squeeze the life out of the rest of us.
Yes, this includes even you gun owners who recognize no need to have multiple semiautomatics, weapons whose overkill capabilities make their purpose pretty transparent. It includes even you gun owners who recognize that not everyone can be trusted with an assault weapon that accommodates a 90-round snail drum — of the kind allegedly used to kill Bexar County Sheriff's Sgt. Kenneth Vann in May.
The NRA argues this new policy is illegal because it wasn't congressionally approved, as was an identical requirement for multiple handgun sales. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives notes that this rule on handguns sales was in existence and enforced before Congress codified it in 1986.
Undoubtedly, all manner of levelheadedness permeates the ranks of legal gun owners. But you can thank the over-the-top demands of the NRA for the stereotype that suggests otherwise. Here's the thing, though: The NRA perpetuates this caricature only because levelheaded gun owners enable it.
Of course the logic of this, were there any at all, founders upon the rocks of the Gunwalker Scandal, which you totally ignore. The Federal government, sir, has been caught facilitating the smuggling of thousands of civilian-market firearms south of the border. Two American law-enforcement officers and at least hundreds of Mexican citizens have been murdered as a result. This represents multiple acts of war by the United States against a sovereign nation and its people. Yet, before we have gotten to the bottom of this scandal, YOU WISH TO FURTHER EMPOWER THESE FEDERAL CRIMINALS.
The Gunwalker Scandal represents murderous functional racism and depraved indifference to the murder of innocents on the part of the Obama administration. Indeed, Gunwalker has killed more Mexicans in the past two years than the Texas Klan ever dreamed of doing in a century. When whistleblower ATF agent John Dodson argued with his superiors that this policy was going to get numerous people killed, he was told "If you want an omelet, you have to break some eggs." Some omelet. Some eggs. What the heck. After all, it's only hundreds of dead Mexicans. Who cares about them? Not you, apparently, because you want to further empower the same people who committed the greatest federal scandal ever. Remember, nobody died at the Watergate Hotel, Ricardo. The bodies of this scandal, in Mexico and the United States, will be stacking up for years to come.
It is as if we have discovered that the tax-paid firefighters tasked with putting out the fires that threaten the rest of us have been proven to be serial arsonists instead. AND YOU WANT TO GIVE THEM MORE MATCHES AND GASOLINE. I'm sure the families of all the Gunwalker victims in Mexico will thank you for THAT.
How you can write such patently agenda-driven hog excrement is beyond me.
