The latest NRA propaganda just needs to be shot down quickly and effectively as it stalks this country. Everyone in the country should be armed intellectually with the facts, then the bad guys with the guns can be stopped by the good guys with consciences and solutions.

Is this part of a pattern? Are more Americans becoming mentally unstable or are they just acting out more on their derangement? Has insanity become mainstreamed?

Apparently, revolution and guns are only good things when in the hands of white people. Can you imagine what would be happening in Ferguson, MO right now if those protesting over the murder of Michael Brown openly carried rifles and hand guns in their protests?
