Today’s tantrum is brought to you by the letters N, R, and A. See, Piers is pissed because the NRA wants concealed carry permits to be valid across state lines:

The nation’s largest gun-rights group, which officially opens its meeting of about 70,000 people Friday in Indianapolis, wants Congress to require that concealed weapons permits issued in one state be recognized everywhere, even when the local requirements differ. Advocates say the effort would eliminate a patchwork of state-specific regulations that lead to carriers unwittingly violating the law when traveling.

And according to Piers, that makes the NRA a bunch of “assassins”:

Beg your pardon, Musket?

That pretty much sums it up.

A little far out there? That’s being generous, considering Piers’ suggestion that the NRA is made up of assassins whose mission is to arm other would-be assassins.

Yep. The real threat here is Musket’s weapons-grade stupidity. Guns aren’t inherently dangerous. In fact, they’ve been successfully used to help prevent potentially deadly violence:

Oh, snap!

Heh.

      Oh, in Pierced Organs little mind, the NRA is too clever to have their fingerprints on the weapon. They just facilitate all these crazed killers getting their hands on guns and killing everyone.

    if the NRA, an organziation who vehemently supports an expression of a right guarranteed by the constitution, are a bunch of assassins, is the ACLU then a group of child pornographers? The logic is the same.

    • Humanary Stew

      The ACLU certainly are communists at least.

      • Name

        unfortunately, the lable of “communist” doesnt carry quite the sting and social stigma it used to. Now, it’s worn almost with a badge of honor. Same as the original meaning of the word “bastard”- a child born out of wedlock- no longer has the social stigma it once had. Again, unwed motherhood is now a badge of honor to be worn and a ocndition to be celebrated.

    • Humanary Stew

      I would say you are moving down. Before you were on a watchlist all by yourself. Now you are lumped in with all the other assassins.

    So, the NRA wants federal legislation when it suits them.

    Let the states decide who can carry in their States.

    • Jake Bradford

      This universal concealed carry idea would never pass. Even if there were massive GOP majorities. But in all seriousness, it’s a good idea. The 2nd amendment applies to every state I’m pretty sure.

      • WhoDat

        They want “Congress to require” it. That would mean some legislation, wouldn’t it?

        • http://www.freedomreconnection.com/ FreedomRecon

          Some uniformity would be nice, though. When traveling, as it stands, you need to be informed of each states laws. Like when I moved from VA to TX, sometimes I had to stop and place it in the trunk, then the next state, it had to be separated from the ammo, etc.

          • WhoDat

            I see nothing wrong with informing oneself of the laws of the jurisdiction they’re in.

          • http://www.freedomreconnection.com/ FreedomRecon

            I did it, but it would be nice if there were just 1 rule when traveling through states. I went through 8 states and each had different rules.

          • iconoclast

            States like New York and NJ abuse this privilege to punish gun owners traveling through. Such as people who have to accept luggage from a flight cancellation and are arrested when they check it back in the next day. Pure KGB tactics
