Gee, I guess all that "The 2A Protects all others" is just BS, then. We don't really care about anyone else's right to anything. As long as we've got ours, the rest of the world can disappear. Unfortunately for that theory, there is no distinction between "gun owners" and "everyone else." Everyone else includes gun owners, who also like to have free speech, and may not care for the NRA to be their sole mouthpiece. If legislation is bad, it is bad for everyone. It ought to be opposed, period. This bill is bad. It has nothing to recommend it and there is no principled stance that would allow the NRA to duck its responsibility to oppose it by cutting a separate deal with the Democrats. The decision appears to have been made on the most calculating political grounds of pure realpolitik.
