      issue. The NRA's conference today was filled with it and so is a lot of the commentary here: "Baby killer!!" "Terrorists!!" Where did I last hear a lot of that same lingo? When Operation Rescue was blockading abortion clinics.

        Just because a term has been used by a disreputable person does not mean that everyone who uses it is disreputable.

        That being said, I do not agree that the NRA are terrorists or baby killers. They are accessories to such crimes, however, by advocating for the right to gun ownership without responsibility.
