The rush to judgment following the Boston Marathon bombings was yet another reminder to get the facts before jumping to conclusions. But, as Jay Carney might say, Boston was a long time ago. As Guns & Patriots editor Neil McCabe noted, itâ€™s never too soon to blame the NRA whenever thereâ€™s a shooting. And with the NRA holding its annual convention in Houston just a day after a shooting at Bush Intercontinental Airport, the urge to connect the dots is just too strong to resist.
Will todayâ€™s incident force the NRA to reconsider its support of shootings in airports and other gun-free zones?
Houstonâ€™s a pretty small town; the guy has to have been headed to the convention, right?
