Because the NRA’s useful idiots just can’t stop digging a hole for themselves and the terrorist organization they’re pimping.
So basically the NRA is contradicting the NRA. From the NRA Gun Safety Rules page:
When using or storing a gun, always follow these NRA rules:
- Know your target and what is beyond. Be absolutely sure you have identified your target beyond any doubt. Equally important, be aware of the area beyond your target. This means observing your prospective area of fire before you shoot. Never fire in a direction in which there are people or any other potential for mishap. Think first. Shoot second.
This also applies to the clowns who think that blasting away at a shooter in a shopping mall or school is a safe way to deal with the situation. The next time someone tells you they need a gun to kill a criminal, ask them if they’ll take the time to find out what’s behind the criminal or whether they’ll just start blasting away like it’s an action-adventure movie.
If they tell you they don’t care what’s behind the shooter, then they have no idea what the hell they’re talking about and are almost as deadly a menace as the people they think they need to protect themselves from.
