Call the NRA What They Are

In defense of the National Rifle Association, if the 5-year olds in Newtown, CT, had been armed, they could have defended themselves.

No, I’m not being funny. I’m using sarcasm to express bitter anger. If the NRA leadership doesn’t take the opportunity to speak out against the loose gun control laws that they have championed, they should be considered a terrorist organization.

In the same way that Jews who don’t speak out against settlement expansion on the West Bank are complicit with it and Muslims who don’t speak out against Islamic terrorism are complicit with it, NRA rank-and-file members who don’t speak out against the gun violence promoted by their leadership’s actions are complicit with it. Yes, NRA sponsors many valuable education programs for its members. Every terrorist organization does.
