link dump intro

There’s been a lot going on politically. It’s overwhelming. I would like to write about all of it, but it’ just so … depressing. I’ve been saving all the news story links, but I don’t want to procrastinate any longer. I’m going to just start dumping links onto the blog with little or no commentary.

A friend recently mention how the NRA isn’t doing very well. Let me tell you, that is left media bias. NRA membership has surged by more than 100,000 members in the last few months. She mentioned how the NRA made a misstep by mentioning Obama’s kids. I remember when that happened, so here’s what I wrote about it in January:

NRA criticized about obama’s kids http://nbcpolitics.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/01/16/16544842-obama-unveils-sweeping-new-gun-control-proposals?lite&GT1=43001

yet obama exploits kids to promote gun control http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/kids-letter-writers-join-president-gun-proposal-signing-article-1.1241392?localLinksEnabled=false

I guess it’s ok to use children for political gains, but only if they’re the children of us ‘little people’. The kids of the political elite are off limits.

The point the NRA was trying to make is that the President’s family is protected 24/7 by a team with semi-auto and full-auto weapons, but he wants *your* kids to go to a school that doesn’t have even a single guard. He wants your children protected at home 10-round magazines while his children are protected by 30 round magazines. Is the life of one child more precious than the life of another, just because of daddy’s job?

About jurmond

'Jurmond' was the name of my first character in a homebrew D&D campaign. He was a gunslinger and tinker, creating and carrying strange weapons that belched fire and smoke. That was well over a decade ago but I still think of him whenever fiction and firearms collide, so it seems the perfect pen name for this project.
