We Gun Owners, and specially NRA Members have been called just about every name in the book and blamed for massacres not of our making. We have been accused of insurrectionist and treason as we were preparing to take over the government when we really do not want to be near it. We have been accused of promoting School Shootings when it was us who told everybody years ago that Gun Free Zones were bound to be bloody disasters. We ask for violent criminals to be targeted and we are the ones who end up being tagged as violent, put on a Homeland Security list of enemies and investigated. Time and time again we offer to debate the issue or simply ask the media to be fair, and we always end up getting hatchet jobs in editorial pages by both written and graphic section. This has been going on for decades, non-stop and with glee. We are tagged as dangerous killers, a redneck version of AlQaeda; our honesty insulted and our humanity doubted.
And yet, not one single cartoonist has been shot & killed by us. Not one single “documentary” director has been shot & stabbed to death in the street. No newspaper offices have been firebombed by us nor has been the offices of Gun Control groups that target us as enemies. No Nobel Prize winner had to go live hiding from the rest of the world because of threats we issued. Not one single man or woman in uniform had his or her head chopped off in the middle of the street.
“Today”, real killers will be vilified for their actions, hopefully they will be apprehended or recycled and the victims taken to their final resting place with sorrow from all.
“Tomorrow”, we gun owners will be back at being called the worse thing that ever happened to Humanity since the Black Plague, that we are vile people who should either be exterminated, taken to mental “facilities” against our will or relocated to camps.
And no one will be killed for it.
