Wow, cold last night, cold this morning, so I’m pondering the warm thought that people who hate the idea of their guns being taken away are frustrated at the thought that — this is cute — nobody wants to take them away.
Rick Egan at the NYTimes says it very nicely here (click.) Bottom line: Despite predictions to the contrary, President Obama hasn’t done squat to restrict guns, either their use or access. This has hurt the NRA, which needs an enemy to boost donations.
So, naturally, the claim now is that his silence, his failure to be their enemy, is a surer sign that he is their enemy?
