The right of genocidal maniacs to bear arms
I have ambiguous feelings about the gun issue and am open to the argument that people should have the right to have guns. But I find the NRA positions to be little more than propaganda for the gun manufacturing lobby, with no connection to the concerns of the average American. As a case in point, a group of nations has recently called for a global treaty to limit the international gun trade. This makes sense: there are very good (and obvious) reasons why we should be trying to curb the flow of weapons to certain corners of the world. Yet the NRA is adamantly against the idea that anything might get in the way of weapons sales. How cynical can these people get?
