The Mirror

The NRA is, to a large segment of the American political Left, what Planned Parenthood is to the Right - An organization that lobbies for rights that result in thousands of unnecessary deaths every year, and that while claiming to want to reduce the body count is vehemently opposed to any binding legal restrictions and considers any talk of "reasonable regulations" to be a sinister ploy to erode civil liberties one incremental step at a time. As concerns these groups, Liberalism and Conservatism sees itself as representing a principled majority of the population, who are being stymied by a radical minority that stands by the status quo for it's own cynical reasons, supported by people who have been duped into acting against their own best interests and abetted by politicians who are afraid to do what they know is right.
