Wow, Paul Helmke is losing it.

Bob S. fisks him more than well enough, but really, Paul?

NRA Sides With Mass Killers Over ATF

That would more accurately read “NRA Sides with Peaceable, Law-Abiding American Gun Owners Over The American Version of the the Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice.” It’s about bloody fucking time the NRA stood up for the interests of its membership, considering how they rolled over on their backs when Eric Holder was nominated for Attorney General.

Personally, though, I think it’s at least a bit laughable that the NRA would come out in such blatant opposition to Andrew Traver, considering how the organization supports the existence of the ATF to begin with. I realize it may not be politically feasible to get rid of the ATF any time soon, and that the NRA’s move is just the way they “play the game,” but there’s never going to be anyone in charge of the ATF who’s any better than indifferent to the right to keep and bear arms. And the sooner the NRA recognizes that and acts accordingly, the better.

    Well, ya know, they only want to stop the flow of weapons from US gun shows into their country, like the “streetsweeper” grenade launcher shown in the Chron’s article today, lamenting how the drug gangs are gaining stronger firepower. (Here’s the story itself: but the pic of a Mexican general holding aforementioned grenade launcher is more elusive.)
