I guess that defending the 2nd requires mounting an assault on the 1st.

Physicians who treat bullet wounds and deal with gun-related deaths were stunned when the National Rifle Association directed “self-important anti-gun” doctors to “stay in your lane.”

The Twitter attack just hours before 12 people were killed in a California bar late Wednesday (the second mass shooting in the nation in less than two weeks)...

Great timing too, NRA.

How is this an attack on 1st Amendment rights?

The NRA must be the most optics-blind organization on the planet.

Some people care about Twitter slap fights...some people don't.

Moving on...

So, then why post in an NRA thread if you are going to play "neutral"?

Why did you post that the tweet was an attack on 1st Amendment rights?

Free speech is only supposed to be free if the left is the speechifier. Otherwise it's hate speech.

The NRA members have a right to free speech.

The anti-gunners are going to hate the NRA, no matter what.

One NGO has a beef with another NGO over 'gun control' which neither group can enact/defeat.

NRA should stay in it's own lane--the one reserved for short buses.

And some people claim not to care, but can't help but comment on it anyways.

Guess which camp we're in.

No thanks. I'll leave it up to you to say which camp you are in.

So, then you should tell the NRA not to care what doctors say.

Why should I tell the NRA not to care what left wing doctors say? NRA is a big boy. They can speak for themselves.

I too am a big boy. I don't care what the doctors say.
