Dana Milbank is on target today
And no doubt is making himself a target of the Wayne LaPierre commandos.
Is the NRA a terrorist organization?So the next time you are in line at the gunshop and Osama bin Laden is in front of you with a full shopping cart, remind him to use the cash back card because he is not allowed to use the frequent flier miles.
By George W. Bush's standard -- you're either with us or against us in the fight against terrorism -- NRA chief Wayne LaPierre should be just a few frequent-flier miles short of a free ticket to Gitmo right about now. Seems he and the rest of the gun lobby are fighting for terrorists' right to buy firearms.
The Bush administration urged Congress to pass a law barring people on the terrorist watch list from buying explosives and guns. The gun lobby objected. Now the Obama administration is urging Congress to pass the same legislation, and the gun lobby continues to object.
