    The idea that there is a racial motivation in Southern Republican legislatures passing Stand-Your-Ground laws however is not.  There are indeed folks itching to go lynching again and there are indeed legislators pandering to them with dog whistles and legislation like Stand Your Ground.

    The NRA agenda however is pretty simple: buy out elected officials to ensure that laws increase the sales of guns no matter what else happens.  They are motivated by gun manufacturers' profits.  Being primarily an astroturf group, the racism of certain of their members is irrelevant.
