As most who know me know, I’m not a fan of the NRA and haven’t been for a long, long time, ever since I learned they gave tacit approval to the ’94 AWB that Bill Ruger helped craft. I quit, as a Life Member on the payment plan. In my book, they’re way, way to nice when it comes to stopping government infringement on our protected rights.
That said, what happened in Florida to Dana Loesch, the NRA’s spokesperson, demonstrates what’s happening to civility in our country.
“I want to make this super obvious point,” Loesch said. “The government has proven that they cannot keep you safe. And yet, some people want all of us to disarm. You heard that town hall last night. They cheered the confiscation of firearms. And it was over 5,000 people.”
“I had to have a security detail to get out,” she said of the Sunland, Fla. event. “I wouldn’t be able to exit that if I didn’t have a private security detail. There were people rushing the stage and screaming burn her. And I came there to talk solutions and I still am going to continue that conversation on solutions as the NRA has been doing since before I was alive.”

As in burn at the stake or in a fire, ‘burn her’??
Civility is failing fast. Sage advice I’ve read somewhere before: “Be polite, be professional, and have a plan to kill everyone you meet.” Additionally, carry. 24/7. You might be glad you did.
