Liberal view on gun control defies logic, so I joined the NRA

What I do have a problem with is the present incarnation of our government. Until another administration comes along that will truly “protect and defend the Constitution …” we can’t rely upon good faith and equal execution of laws.

Many liberals would have you believe guns to be the cause of gun violence, blaming the hardware rather than the software. By such convoluted logic, hypodermic needles cause drug addiction.

But logic has very little to do with their politics. Whenever some gangsta idiot with a gun does something idiotic, the left calls out Samuel Colt but leaves Lil Wayne completely alone. There’s no way rational minds can’t correlate cultures with actions.

Oppressively strict gun controls keep weapons out of the hands of law-abiding citizens but don’t impact criminals. Ask someone from Chicago how ultra-tight gun laws work for them.

So for the present, I support the NRA’s efforts to block any truncation of my rights under the Second Amendment. When a trustworthy administration regains power, I’ll likely quit and save my 25-bucks annual dues.

Meanwhile the rabid left will continue to preach that umbrellas cause rain.
