Long time readers may recall my first encounter with Homer Simpson's dumber brother, "Kill All They Send..." following his modest proposal for The disarming of America back in 2007.
Well, here we are 8 years later and Simpson is still singing from the same collectivist playbook: "The NRA is not about protecting the Second Amendment, it’s about selling guns."
Simpson concludes his screed:
I had sighed in resignation as two years passed after the Newtown murders, and as other mass shootings followed, and nothing happened. But watching a show as theoretically serious as “Frontline” blow past gun-industry corporate financing of the NRA was more than I could bear.At different times, including after the butchery of children in Newtown, President Barack Obama has showed himself disposed to take on the gun lobby. I note his feistiness now, in the last two years of his presidency, by changing U.S. Cuba policy, by taking action on immigration and, as he grays, showing a human side in his objectives that was sometimes missing in earlier policy calculations. The lack of reasonable limits on gun sales, ownership and use is one of the true stains on America as a civilized nation, very much worthy of his attention.Why can’t Mr. Obama now take on guns? He could take a stand and do what he can as president. Even if the NRA continues to block meaningful legislation, he could make an important point on a key American issue.I hope the Secret Service hasn’t deteriorated so far that he is afraid for his life if he takes on the NRA. Then there was Martin Luther King Jr.
So, Simpson is saying that NRA would assassinate Obama if he "tried to something serious" about guns? THOSE pantywaists? What a hoot.
