Daniel Gross: George Zimmerman is the NRA.Them Too.
Don’t look for logic or science to support the gun lobby’s arguments. It relies on highly discredited research and questionable anecdotes, tinged with just the right amount of racism, to create the fear and paranoia it uses to justify why everyone should carry around guns, everywhere. The NRA glibly says “an armed society is a polite society.” Tell that to Trayvon Martin’s parents. Tell that to the families of the thousands of others killed unnecessarily every year because of the guns that the gun lobby and, worse, our elected representatives have put on the streets and in the hands of dangerous people.
