The NRA has a name for 20 dead children: the 'Connecticut effect'

A top lobbyist for the National Rifle Association (NRA) explains why its legislative agenda is on hold:
We have a strong agenda coming up for next year, but of course a lot of thats going to be delayed as the Connecticut effect has to go through the process.
So if everyone could just hurry up and "process" the brutal murder of 20 children and six adults, the NRA can get back to their full-time campaign against common sense solutions to curb gun violence.
So come on, get over it already, people!
Or make a difference by helping candidates like Robin Kelly, running for congress in IL-02, who will fight the NRA. Join the 4,000+ who have already opted to send the NRA a message and contribute to Kelly today!

Campaign promise du jour, fight the NRA. There is no question that every time one of these shootings occurs, the anti gun activists are out for blood. And as time goes by, the furor dies down and people get back to the business of living. Until the next incident occurs. Be it gun deaths, auto accidents, some new designer drug, etc, there is always an outcry that tends to peak and then fizzle out. Eventually the media gets bored as well because Linsdey Lohans boob falls out of her dress or some politician gets caught with his hand in some ones panties. Or maybe Obama rides a horsey. Of course, he will be wearing a helmet.

I agree and I have been saying the same thing for weeks. Liberals have the attention span of a goldfish. It's only a matter of time before they get distracted by the next national crisis: Snookie's new boyfriend, Dancing with the stars, American Idol.....

The Illinois second district is open because Jesse Jackson Jr. got pinched stealing campaign money. Of course a liberal black Democrat will win in the south side of Obama's shoot-em-up Chicago. They can point to law-abiding gun owners instead of the gang rats that live in the hood and scream racism.

As thousands of pro-gun activists held rallies across the United States on Saturday, accidental shootings at three different guns shows illustrated the obvious: Being around lots of people carrying firearms can be a tad dangerous. The Associated Press compiles the reports from North Carolina, Indiana and Ohio.
In Raleigh, a shotgun went off when the owner was taking it out of its case at a security checkpoint, injuring three people. In Indianapolis, a 54-year-old man appears to have accidentally shot himself in the hand as he was leaving a gun show. And in Ohio, a dealer was checking out a purchase when he pulled the trigger by accident and injured his friend. Although he had removed the magazine from the weapon, a round remained in the chamber.

You all need to listen to my hubby, the gay Slewsie. No one knows how to cut and paste from blogs like my hubby. I am so proud of him.
