This boob has no idea if George Zimmerman is a member of the NRA, but why should that stop this mental midget from smearing them as a bunch of paranoid gun nuts?
Officially the National Rifle Association convention is not supposed to begin until Friday, at the America’s Center of St. Louis, Mo. But really the NRA convention began Thursday in a courtroom in Sanford, Fla., its keynote speech delivered by a man in a jail jumpsuit who barely said a word.
His name is George Zimmerman and he is not just the face of the NRA in this country, he is the face of gun laws built on the fears and paranoia of the gun lovers in the NRA, the ones who have made a mockery of the Second Amendment. His name is George Zimmerman and in all the big ways he is the darling of the NRA, which wants the whole country to shoot first and ask questions later.
And if an unarmed 17-year old kid ends up dead in the street, well, that’s just the cost of doing business.
Mayor Bloomberg was talking about laws like that again yesterday, one day after delivering a speech in Washington that was the biggest and best speech any major American politician has ever given on the subject of guns.
“These laws are vigilantism masquerading as self-defense, and getting 25 states to pass them is one of the best con jobs the NRA’s leaders have ever pulled off,” Bloomberg said. “They don’t give a damn whether innocent people are shot and killed. And they don’t give a damn about the integrity of the American justice system. They want to create a nation where disputes are settled by guns instead of gavels, and where suspects are shot by civilians instead of arrested by police. These laws destabilize our justice system, they degrade our society, and they destroy innocent lives. We can’t be silent — and we can’t let them stand.
You can’t even debate with these people. The NRA doesn’t care if people are shot? Really? There’s not a shred of evidence to support such libel, but that’s how these ivory tower liberals live. I wonder if some marauders broke into the Lupica estate how he would plan to protect himself? With his witty charm and 4-foot-10 frame?
I guess the Lupicas and Bloombergs of the world haven’t listened to Trayvon Martin’s mother, who called her son’s death a tragic accident. She at least is taking the high road. For these gun grabbers there’s no road too low to travel, no death that can’t be exploited.
