Blame the NRA

It is time to call the NRA exactly what it is: a terrorist organization.

It is the enabler that allows ISIS and its deluded followers to obtain the weapons of mass destruction they need to commit terrorist acts in this country. ISIS itself has even admitted this, and I am sure it is thankful to the NRA for its help.

The NRA’s talking point that the solution to terrorists’ mass shootings is to eliminate radical jihad is ridiculous. It is like saying that the solution to eliminating crime is to identify all the criminals before they commit their crimes. That is impossible, irrational and insane.

The better way to reduce terrorism and crime is to prevent terrorists and criminals from getting their hands on the weapons in the first place. Let’s put the blame where it really belongs: the NRA and its bought-and-paid-for politicians in Congress.
