Quotable

The NRA's entire narrative revolves around fantasizing about killing people -- killing the "bad guys." It is propped up by fear and paranoia about runaway "gang members" (which as a bonus is probably racial coding) who are going to break into your home while you're there (also statistically unlikely) so you need a gun to protect your family -- protect them by blowing away the bad guys. To purchase a gun in the unlikely chance that you would need to use it against an armed intruder or in a public shootout is to fantasize about violence in a much more real and dangerous way than those who fire up their video-game consoles.
