    it was a distraction noise maker whose technical name i forget.

    the wonderful irony for NRA: careful planning that only the feds could do, including building a facsimile bunker, just as they did for the Osama bin Laden raid against a guy who did exactly what they want gun owners to do: prep and hunker down ...

      to follow the latest news on the story.

      the nra is out to sell guns.  period.  if they can hoodwink the survivalist yahoos into believing arming themselves to-the-teeth is the answer, so much the better, as far as they're concerned.

        the gun ppl vote their local and state reps according to the NRA report card. so all the MSM on the NRA major FAIL in the congressional funding and national gallup pollings on checks  means nothing. their success is in the states and localities report cards where they run their protection racquets during elections and it thre that the conceal and carry and other laws are made

        I bemoan our ever getting rid of them...but then the white citizens' rights groups were beaten and they too had the upper hand and the guns....in the 60s....

        i am glad to have you worrying with me.
