    Hey, don’t forget the helmets and face masks in case the shooter aims at the head.
    Is it any wonder that the NRA is funded as much or more by gun mrs. than by individual member dues? (And a majority of indiv. NRA members support background checks & assault weapon bans). The NRA donates to conservative GOP candidates, and the WSJ’s editorial policy is conservative GOP. See a connection?

  • The NRA owns both parties. As does Wall Street. That's the main reason I'm behind Bernie exerting influence at DemCon.
