Stevieslaw: NRA Updates—Fear of Background Checks
While 93% of the members of the National Rifle Association are in favor of increased background checks, to make sure that the unstable and criminal do not acquire guns, the leaders of the group have been uniformly opposed to it. Someone should ask why.
At breakfast this morning, Smokey Diamond—our intrepid reporter—said between bites of smoked mackerel, “I wonder why the leaders of the NRA are so opposed to a sensible extension of background checks.” Smokey and I spent the rest of the morning trying to come up with a plausible reason. In the end, it was easy to figure out. Have you ever watched and listened to Walter LaPierre give his take on guns and the world? Now superimpose for the moment some background music—how about a little something from Buffalo Springfield, say a little “Something Happening Here:”
Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away.
It fits well, doesn’t it. Do you want Walter with an assault rifle? The NRA leadership is afraid of extending background checks, because not one of them, to a man, could pass such a check. Think of it—weaponless Walter and the rest.
