Quote of the Day: The True Goal of the NRA

NRA top-dog Wayne LaPierre is a Roanoke native. We should be ashamed.
I'm not exactly sure where the following comes from, but the man who posted it on Facebook so that I could see it (John Weircioch) says it is from an editorial "elsewhere." It is stark, true and eyebrow-raising:

"The NRA is a gun manufacturer's lobby. Their goal is to assure themselves of a continuous and ever-growing market for what are truly durable goods. Guns last forever, so they need to create a market for new ones. It's how they make money. The NRA does not care about the Constitution. It does not care about "rights." It's goal is to have a market. If there was money to be made in banning guns, they'd be for that. 
"The NRA is the mechanism by which certain corporate interests hoodwink a large number of citizens into thinking that a corporation has their true interests at heart. The NRA is indifferent to the deaths of these children. As long as the money keeps rolling in, what people do with the guns they buy is completely beside the point. This is what the discussion needs to be about. There is no such thing as gun "rights." It is a bill of goods sold by the NRA. They are laughing all the way to the bank."
