The NRA's 'circus of fear'

Posted By on Thu, Jun 7, 2012 at 10:11 AM

Good roundup from the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence on the NRA's promotion of a variety of conspiracy theories to weld gun nuts to religious extremists and the political right into a controlling political majority. (Did you know about NRA ads warning of Democratic gun seizures in the event of Scott Walker's recall in Wisconsin? Yes, gun nut money was among the millions poured into the Walker effort.)

BTW, Obama has been soft on guns. He won't be depicted that way.

The coalition also put together the video.

Coming soon to the Arkansas Statehouse.
