I’m a supporter of the 2nd Amendment, but I was appalled on Saturday, July 21 to see on local (television) the 4 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. airing of an NRA-sponsored advertisement, soliciting donations for the NRA and NRA membership: “The Secret War on Guns: Anti-gun schemes threaten American lives and attack American freedom.” This was 30 minutes of hyper-partisan non-stop NRA spokesmen extolling the virtues of guns and vilifying any issues around gun control. And this is the next day, after the “Movie Massacre” killings in Aurora, Colo., using a “legal” AR-15 assault rifle. This is the height of arrogance, of insensitivity and poor timing. Don’t any of these people have any shame?
