And then the left collectively wonders why people in the middle effectively say nope. **** it. Bring on the silencers.
The nine people who watch GQ must be horrified.
Although I agree he was being unfair. The NRA may be a lobby organization that directly profits from terrorism on multiple angles: sales of guns to terrorists, sales of guns to people afraid of terrorists, sales of guns to people afraid that someone will take their guns following terror attacks, etc and an organization that fights hard to keep guns as accessible as possible for anyone who might want one, but they're not a "terrorist organization", per se. Terrorists take human lives for the sake of ideology, the NRA just facilitates it for the sake of profit.
Mostly agreed, but we can extend this argument to ridiculous lengths quite fast. A vast majority of US corps ( wait, why I am singling out national corps ) - multinationals - in one way or another profit from death ( health insurance ), slavery ( dunno, shoe making ), profiteering ( Venezuela ), toppling of emerging markets ( prolly Venezuela too ).. sure, they are not evil terrorists, but they do facilitate terrorism in the name profit.
It does seem more subtle than a gun though; accepted terrorism maybe..
The only difference is that there seems to be a clear agency with a gun.. with a corporation, well, who knows what really happened there. We just happened to benefit from this particular event. But who could have possibly predicted that?
Surely, the lawyers can sort this out.
