    We, as a nation, must stand up to the National Rifle Association and enforce sensible gun laws. I always knew the NRA was made up of people who hate blacks, Latinos, Jews, Catholics and members of any religion that advocates peace and non-violence. But to discover that they had an actual "enemies list" until they deleted it from the NRA web site, just floored me. The AFT is on the list! I thought they've said that they want to make schools safer. So the teachers at the schools are threats?
    I'm not surprised black nurses are threats. Can't have those people fighting decent pay and working conditions. But all nurses and all doctors including trauma specialists???

    Anyway, Congrads to Larry O'Donnell and all the other MSNBC commentors for focusing on the crazy and dangerous NRA. This country has a lot of problems which must be addressed, but this is one of the fights that must continue.

    It's amazing what the glare of publicity can accomplish.

    I didn't know that the list existed until a local columnist published an article about it about a week ago.

    Sure enough, when I checked the link again this morning, I found that it had been deleted.

    HOWEVER, through the magic of Google, I found a shortened version again this morning at another site, and here it is:

    you hit "flag" and then you have to search through their list of rules/violations and chose the one YOU say they broke. From there, I have not figured out how to get back to the "home" site, so I always close the window and re-log if I want to come back.

    One only has to look at the Tea Party types to know and understand how socially disturbed and self-centered they are. It has nothing to do with where they live, although most old, whites Southerners do fit the Tea Party norm it's only because of the narrow minded ignorance so prevalent in the South many live in CT, as witnessed by our "new Troll friend".

BTW, the irony of your laughable remark, the term "redneck" actually was originated to denigrate the Floridians back in the early 1900's!
    You sad, "sick" Lefties demean the Tea-Party Patriots because they stand for what our founding fathers intended, a Federal Government that was subserviant to the States and you spineless idiots are terrified of making it through life without the assistance of the Corrupt Federal Government filth!
    Some of the founders thought that. But others prevailed due to not wanting states vs states to occur. The Teaparty wants states to be able to ignore the constitution with no recriminations. Just what our founders did not want.

    But now it must be asked. Does it do any good?

    Gems:


    Hard to say.

    I tried flagging the entry again tonight using all the "rules violation" tools, and still didn't make a mark.
    When I tried flagging the post in question this morning, I only managed to open up the DELETE button on my own entries.

    Maybe kosko can help.

    However, if you're adept at creating computer viruses, I have an idea for you ...............................

    It isn't so much "the National Rifle Association" that stands in the way of proposed gun control law, it is the Constitution.

    Wrong. I have been an Endowment Member since the 1990's and have attended many "Friends of the NRA" benefits and their national conventions and have shot at and attended many NRA sponsored events (including law enforcement competitions) and have never experienced what you describe (and I am non-white, 32 year building trades union member, socially liberal Moderate / Independent).

    I find the vitriol and mischaracterization amusing . . . A list of those who promote the erosion of gun rights ins't an "enemies list" except when defined as such by hateful political enemies of the NRA.

    I can assure you that the derision directed to those "enimies" is nothing compared to the derision that "your side" heaps on the NRA (this and many other threads here contain plenty of evidence of that). The NRA's political arm (the Institute for Legislative Action) is first and foremost a grass-roots acitivist organization that depends on alerting NRA members of threats to their rights. This does include informing them of the large number of supposed NON-POLITICAL groups, especially fraternal and professional organizations supposed to be NON-POLITICAL who use their platform of expertise to advocate for a hostile to gun rights POLITICAL AGENDA. Many NRA members are professionals and members of those organizations who may be in a position to advocate for change . . .

    All in all, this list is not offensive. A question, is the NRA and the John Birch Society and Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership on a "political enemies" list somewhere at the Brady Campaign or even at DNC HQ?

    Please stop with the histrionics. . .

    Whose national fraternal and professional organizations support anti-gun organizations and or the anti-gun rights POLITICAL AGENDA.

    No, it is depressing how easy a cacophony of agitated uninformed can be assembled to detract from the real issues that should be discussed right now. This "enemies list" has been composed and refined over the last for 20+ years and at this moment it is "exposed" and the hyperbole machine starts spitting out the attacks.

    Defending the list would be a useless endeavor for the NRA because the raising of it is a strawman / red herring in the general debate of whether the federal government is allowed to do --what Feinstein et al-- wants to do.

    The time and energy that NRA would have spent explaining the "enemies list" is much better spent advocating for the Constitution and resisting its violation.

    But now you are an expert on NRA positions and programs and activity?

    I have been very respectful and have rebutted many posts here (including yours) with strictly on-point historical and constitutional focus.

    I find it amusing that many here find no difficulty throwing insults around (e.g., maturity and intelligence levels / socially disturbed tea party zealot / old white southerners / narrow minded ignorance) while posting sentiments that display their own profound ignorance / incorrectness about history and the Constitution and then completely ignore precise rebuttals thus evading having to defend your erroneous statements on the historical / legal / constitutional issues at hand.

    Interesting . . .

    Can I flag for that?

    Nice . . . Why bother rebutting oppositional positions when you can sabotage the opposition's ability to speak?

    Can I flag for that?

    My post was delted but I don't think it is for what I wrote. I quoted noreaster in my reply and that post and mine are currently on Rod Serling's desk.
