NRA and LaPierre unite disarmament advocates as gun owners remain divided


At least he didn’t overtly telegraph concessions on guns. My worst fear was that National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre’s Friday press statement was going to find something to offer the mob in the hopes that it would somehow appease the blood lust, metaphoric and otherwise, being directed at NRA members and at gun owners in general.

I ventured a faint fantasy hope for leadership that would inspire gun owner unity in the face of the most intense and pervasive firestorm of directed hatred I’ve ever witnessed. That “national conversation on guns” the antis said they wanted was (surprise!) always intended to be a monologue — they get to speak and demand and impose, and you get to agree. But, and we’ll see not without valid reasons, gun owners remain divided, with people I respect giving thumbs up and down for LaPierre’s performance.

What he offered was troubling for some, me included, and not just because NRA’s “Safety Shield” program proposing that the feds pay for armed police officers in schools is essentially a massive expansion of what Bill Clinton wanted to do — which in itself ought to expose how fraudulent those on the left now howling at LaPierre truly are. It’s also telling to see the usual suspects come out against the very principle of armed school resource officers. And to prove their point, they cite Columbine, failing to take into account that the killers withdrew when taking in return fire and went on to softer targets — while those “professionals” entrusted to protect and serve took cover rather than pursuit, leaving the murderers free to go about their butchery unopposed.

    I think most conservatives tend to be in the “live-and-let-live” category of philosophical leanings. There is a part of us all that wish people would manage their own lives and leave others alone but this is not human nature. We tend to think of ourselves as enlightened/advanced/modern/etc beings but the truth is we are as a society, not very evolved. We either want to be left alone or we want some all powerful entity (God/Government) to impose our desires on the rest of the population. The left wish to remain sheep and are content to let the sheep-dog (not too far removed from the wolf itself) run the herd; as long as they can graze contentedly they are happy. Groups such as the Rockefeller/Carnegie/Ford Foundations recognize this and have filled the vacuum that organized religions used to occupy with Relative Humanism in order to prepare the sheep for a reduced existence under their autocratic thumbs. As recorded Human history goes, you can see it’s time to thin the herd.
