“Reasonable People” Need to Bring the “Justice” to the NRA
“Charles Blow had a great column in The New York Times, I don’t know if you saw it. Basically, he showed all the polls. He’s great on polls. And it shows there’s an overwhelming support in this country for gun safety, for basically banning semiautomatic assault weapons. It all makes sense. It all sounds like you talking. And – yet because you are a reasonable for safety person, and I don’t understand why reasonable people have so little power at the ballot box. They just don’t. The NRA, Oliver North, the fact that they would pick him – I mean they seem to be immune to justice.”
