One of the comments at the bottom really crystallized part of the problem. The kind of people who cling to their guns will tend to be more paranoid and live in fear. So when these guys from the NRA are constantly talking about how Obama is coming to get their guns (despite having no basis for their comments), they're just praying on the weakness of their base and scaring them into signing up.

B.c anytime anyone says anything they don't like then they say it must be a worldwide conspiracty against guns, truth is they only care about guns b.c they make so much money on the murder and mayhem, they didn't cry for the 2 border agents who accidently shot eachother (one more border agent than was killed by a fast and furious gun), did they
No, b.c that's just part of the price of them doing business!. like all the cops killed in domestic disputes (more cops were killed with legal guns responding to domestic disputes than were killed by real criminals or illegal guns).

I was also surprised when I read most gun deaths are suicides
about 22K suicides committed by guns (mostly by young people),
only 6500 gun murders but 21,000+ gun suicides.

The NRA got nothing to worry about, only time their will ever be any real gun control in America
is when the people who lose their homes start shooting the bankers and the wall street crooks (then there would be gun control immediately) but as long as it's mostly poor people and minorities getting murdered with guns no gun control will ever happen (22K suicides is nothing b.c they aren't rich people killing themselves with guns) hundreds of cops being shot by legal guns in domestic disputes is nothing (Cops don't make too much money).

True Dat! These Gun-Nuts believe that the evil, socialist, despot, Obama is going to call up the troops to sweep across the country disarming the citizens so he can assume total control. If Obama doesn't do it, then Hillary or Pelosi will!

The NRA kooks also fantasize that they will answer the call like the minutemen of old. They will rise up, defeat the evil U.S. Fifth Army, and return freedom and liberty to the people!

Such a child-like, ignorant, delusion. Too bad it couldn't happen. The Army would rip them apart in a matter of hours!

The NRA constantly appeals to the most basic emotions by playing up the paranoia and fear of their base. And who's more paranoid and fear-based than people who feel the need to own a gun.

In all seriousness though, has Obama or his administration said anything about guns in the past four years? I can't remember a thing. Then again, some of these people have probably convinced themselves that this is the quiet before the storm.

The President (socialist, fascist, n.azi, communist, dicatator) Obama hasn't had to say anything, the right-wing lie machine has painted him and the left as the champions of gun control! The people are delusional, so the mere suggestion that guns ought to be controlled is enough to send their peanut minds racing into grand conspiracies where the left disarms them and forces everyone to hug trees and eat organic granola!

The laugh is, of course, that if any side, right or left, was to invoke the NDAA, and set themselves up as a dictatorship, the NRA's guns would constitute very little challenge to the armed forces. The fact is, the only thing really standing between any president and dicatatorship is the fact that the armed forces may NOT comply with his invoking of the NDAA.

No actually most people who got screwed by the bankers and wall street crooks
actually were eligible for 30 year fixed rate mortgages (so they weren't poor)
but the bankers and wall street crooks made bigger profits pushing the crappy mortgages on them.

***since their audience is already entranced***

Just because you're watching something doesn't mean you're entranced by it.

***Company man Bob Costas read off a teleprompter no different than Obama or Rachel Maddow does. ***

... and Hannity does, and O'Reilly does, and Beck does... or are those guys free and independent thinkers because they're conservatives?

***If this football player got in his SUV and mowed down a bunch of people would we hear anti car propaganda? or the millions sickened by obesity, would Bob Costas suggest that spoons are the blame?***

No. Cars and food were not designed with the specific intention of firing hot lead slugs into human flesh.

***The 1st amendment lives when we are able to complain about ill-conceived propaganda. ***

Right. As long as YOU get to decided what is and isn't "ill-conceived."

I wonder if Costas would have a problem if the guy killed his girlfriend with his toupee.

Guys that are in the NRA feel they need their guns to compensate for their tiny "manhoods".
