Mr. North said the NRA is now the victim of “civil terrorism” after vandals splashed fake blood on the Virginia home of a top NRA official and other opponents aimed personal “threats” at NRA leaders and members.

“They call them activists. That’s what they’re calling themselves. They’re not activists — this is civil terrorism. This is the kind of thing that’s never been seen against a civil rights organization in America,” he said.

“You go back to the terrible days of Jim Crow and those kinds of things — even there you didn’t have this kind of thing,” he said. “We didn’t have the cyberwar kind of thing that we’ve got today.”
The problem isn't guns, its teens that survive school shootings! :hopelessness:

Of course, all the gun owner cowards that think they are only safe if they can walk all over the place with a gun, they are playing that card. The perpetual victim card played by them, so their people will continue to keep buying more and more guns expecting their house to invaded by an army.

It makes sense why so many are such chickenshits about every fictional boogieman they can imagine

I appreciate what the NRA does. Frankly, too many citizens are out there begging our govt to strip away rights. We need to fight as long as we can. If we dont, what was the point?
But North? He is the WORST example possible. What a stupid decision.

Perhaps it would help if the NRA didn't insist on branding anyone bringing up the issue of gun control as a freedom hating commie. Now you've got someone committing an act of vandalism and you have to move up to "terrorist". Tone down the rhetoric and separate the clearly wrong actions like this paint thing from someone just expressing their views and treat them with civility and maybe we can discuss gun laws without it becoming a criminal matter.

I am so sick of hyperbolized speech from reactionaries. It's ridiculous.
