The Chickenshit NRA

If the NRA had any guts, this fight would be at 25 paces with 9 millimeter handguns.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, ratified in 1791.

The NRA are a bunch of pikers. Their proposed legislation would do nothing for Georgia’s gun owners who want to use firearms for self defense. Their vaunted bill would only let gun owning employees park on company property with weapons locked in their vehicles. What good would this do an employee when a criminal, a mentally disturbed gunman, or the estranged husband of his girlfriend comes gunning for him on the job? Nothing! While his guns are locked up in the company parking lot, the weaponless gun owner would be hunted, cornered, then shot full of holes. The pusillanimous NRA would leave God fearing, patriotic, arms bearing Americans defenseless when they are most in need of their firearms. One can only picture the pitiful creature, mortally wounded, crawling over to his locked F-150 or Chevy Silverado, bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds, clawing fruitlessly at the locked door, as he slowly slumps to the ground, moribund.

If the NRA had any guts, they would craft a bill that would allow gun owners to carry their weapons at work, in public places, in government buildings- including the State Capitol, and in schools, churches and ashrams. That way, when the bad guys start shooting, we can be sure that a lot of people will be firing back. Just don’t get caught in the crossfire.
