Just when you think the NRA can't sink any lower ........


Brian Judy, a senior state lobbyist for the National Rifle Association, compared supporting gun control to paving the way for the Holocaust last week.

His particular target: venture capitalist Nick Hanauer, who is affiliated with the Washington Alliance for Gun Responsibility and has supported a Washington state gun control initiative. Hanauer has said his family fled Germany to escape the Nazis.

Judy laid into Hanauer and other gun control supporters at a July 23 event opposing the Washington state initiative, I-594, which would require criminal background checks of individuals purchasing firearms at gun shows and online. ..................(more)

1. Gun owners have been making the 'Holocaust' argument for decades.

2. So..to require criminal background checks of individuals purchasing firearms at gun shows and online

 

...is going to pave the way for something like the Holocaust.?

We ARE talking about people on earth..right ??
Some Republican thought processes are simply beyond me.

3. Yes, it was a stupid comment.

Fortunately, WA state does not take a lot of direction from the NRA. We locals are pretty good at weeding out the anti-gun nonsense on our own, and the NRA actively defers to us most of the time.

Unfortunately for I-594, it is a bad implementation of a good idea. Until we get a better implementation of universal background checks, we are better off without I-594.

5. The gun control side isn't much better.

 

Anytime there's a tragedy involving guns, they're out proposing ever more stringent laws, many times before the victims have even been buried. I see that as exploitation of the victims and their families - they try to use the emotions of the moment to pass legislation that would not survive objective scrutiny. NY's SAFE act is a great example.

10. Time to face reality: these people adore and worship Hitler.

They wouldn't have any arguments tl be made if it weren't for the Nazis. You want separation of church and state? You're a Nazi. You want sensible gun control laws? You're a Nazi. I could go on and on.
