NRA assholes

I got a phone call from the NRA. They’ve been persistent about it – evidently they called a couple of times and asked for me when I wasn’t there, so somehow I got on their list as a gun owner, even though I haven’t owned a gun since long before I moved to this country. They made me listen to a recorded message from the president of the NRA with a bunch of bullshit about how Barack Obama wants to team up with Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton to steal your guns. Then they asked me a couple of questions:

The first one was “Are you a proud gun owner” – I said yes, even though I’m not, just to see where they were going with this (as if I didn’t know).

The second one was an incredibly leading question about Obama, something about being worried about his “anti-gun ownership agenda”, and when I said “Absolutely not”, the questioner was utterly flat footed, like she’d never heard anybody answer the wrong way before. She thanked me for my time and hung up.

    No wonder – your two responses contradicted each other. A proud gun owner would tend to be well enough informed about B.H.O.’s gun-related history that she couldn’t avoid being worried.

  2. Or just maybe, Frank, they would think that there are more important things at stake in this election than whether people get to buy automatic weapons without a waiting period.

  3. Sure, Paul, some civil rights are less important than others to different people. But even that doesn’t make your responses to the NRA callerbot any more logical.

  4. @Frank: But, Paul is always right. Even when he is not right. Thats one very basic rule at this blog.
