If you are from South Florida and have picked up a copy of the Miami Herald more than once, you are familiar with the “artistic” work of Jim Morin and can safely assume that he has a seething hate for the NRA. He never fails to portray NRA members and Gun Owners as white guys with cowboy rigs…which sort of shows Mr. Morin has never been to a gun range in the Palm Beach/Broward/Miami-Dade area and seen the Rainbow Coalition sending lead downrange.

Besides the poorly display of bigotry, Mr. Morin brings out a detail that should be an embarrassment for the natives here: Even if we wanted to, we cannot hold an NRA Annual meeting down here as we don’t have the facilities to host the loads of people who attend them. Last year’s at Houston, over 86,000 people graced the Annual Meeting and the local businesses did loads of moolah. Oh yes, as usual, crime was not an issue as even the dumbest of criminals know to stay away from locales that gather individuals who can respond not so nicely to their forceful request for cash, property or body.
Mr. Morin would rather see “safer” and more “hip” events like Urban Weekend, celebrated every year at Miami Beach. Last year’s was a slower one according toe the experts:
Yup… We NRA members are the lawbreakers.
