Hang the Flag Properly

If you're going to be a blackneck, the least you can do is hang the flag properly.

My favorite line:
quot;A gun has as many uses as a pair of womans shoes."

Why only a woman's shoes? Is he trying to tell us something? Is he maybe a black transvestite with a gun?

Now that this bit of snarkiness is out of the way, I'm actually surprised that there aren't more African Americans in the NRA. Perhaps an ingress of black folks is what the NRA needs to combat its "right wing survivalist nutjob" image, much in the way that you suggested that increased numbers of powerful blacks would improve the image of the GOP.

I happen to think that the NRA are nuts to challenge the assault weapons ban. There is no good reason for 18 year old gangbangers to have access to AK47s. I further don't believe that Americans of any stripe are in any position or ever will be to use their 'rights' to guns to protect them from government abuse.

There will be a civil war, or the government will win. The NRA is not a dog in that fight no matter what. So what are they really good for? They're just a symbolic litmus organization that gets more money and political influence than they deserve. To hell with their image.

That said, I'm something of a blackneck myself. If I lived where I could hunt, I very likely would. If I lived where I thought I'd need Mr. Mossberg, I very likely would. I've got no qualms against the machines.

On gun control, I think it's one of those futile exercises that show good character and are thus worthwhile. Rather like prayer.
