Is there an organization out there for people who are pro-gun, but who aren’t frothingly stupid Republican partisan shills?
I got a phonecall this week, from the NRA, doing a ‘poll’. They wanted me to listen to a short message from their executive Vice-President, Redneck McFucknut, and then answer a question.
Redneck McFucknut outlined the U.N.'s efforts at an international gun ban, which was painted as a plot to get guns away from Americans and to spread anti-American sentiment around the world. Why the U.N. would do the latter, I don’t know, but Redneck McFucknut was sure that was part of it.
So the call connects me to the question-asker, and I’m already pretty pissed, and he asks me their scientific single question :
“Do you support letting third-world dictators and Hillary Clinton taking away your right to own guns?”
I chewed on the poor pollster schmuck for propagating shameful divisive politics and told him it was an intentionally misleading question with built-in assumptions, like asking someone ‘Have you stopped beating your wife?’. Then he asked the question again. So I reiterated that it was a crap question and that he should be ashamed of himself for facilitating it - finally getting the message, he thanked me and ended the call.
I’m betting the poll results won’t show ‘NRA should be ashamed of themselves - 1%’.
