Daniel Johnson, Deputy Executive Editor of Salem-News.com goes and rehashes the old Terrorism meme from the Clinton Administration Era in his “editorial” The NRA — A terrorist organization.
Still, it amazes me that somebody who makes his living off the Liberties recognized in the Bill Of Rights has the chutzpa of writing stuff like this:
It’s long past time for the American people to wake up and realize that their so-called Second Amendment rights have gradually turned the National Rifle Association into a terrorist organization through its adamant refusal to repudiate gun violence using the legal technicality that it’s every American’s Second Amendment right to terrorize his (not often her) fellow citizens.
A technicality? I am sure that Mr. Johnson believes that the Right Of The People as applied in the Second Amendment really means Collective Rights That Can be Suppressed By The Government. But that the Right Of The People as applied in the First Amendment is an unalienable personal right that no Government or individual must even think about touching.
I reckon one day he’ll figure it out, hopefully before it is too late.
